Answer: No dear, it is low. Should be around 14. Drink lots of water regularly, it is one of the easiest ways to increase the amniotic fluid index. Take water contant foods, Vegetable like cucumber, lettuce, iceberg, spinach, radish, broccoli, cauliflower, etc. Fruits like strawberries, watermelon, tomatoes, cantaloupe, grapefruit, etc.... Do not drink alcohol..... Avoid certain herbal supplements which can dehydrate you..... Perform light workout regularly.  Regular workout helps in increased blood flow to various parts of the body. If the blood flow increases in the placenta and uterus, the level of amniotic fluid in your body also increases.

Question: My baby weight is 2650.and AFI is 8 cm. Is it normal?
Answer: Yes dear. The weight of ur baby is absolutely normal. It should ideally be around 2622 grams. The afi is on border as it should be betwren 8 to 18.One way to increase amniotic fluid volume and potentially avoid this condition is simply by drinking more water. Drinking 2-3 ltrs is what my doctor told me when I had less amnuitic fluid. Drinking coconut water helps meet your increased need for water when you're pregnant. This higher fluid need supports your increased blood volume, maintenance of amniotic fluid volume and fetal circulation. Drinking coconut water as part of your fluidintake provides you with variety in your routine. Hope it helps.
