1 Answers
Answer: hi dear! so dear amniotic fluid is produced by the baby itself when it urinates inside . so there are certain medicines available like indomethacin that reduces the urine production in the baby dont worry it will do no harm to the baby . and do not take them unless your doctor provides you with the prescription. it should come under control with medicines only and if there is more fluid then drainage of some portion of the fluid is done , but its done when there is more risk . take care dear! i hope this information was helpful to you dear!

Question: How to reduce amniotic fluid
Answer: Hello! There is no way you can reduce amniotic fluid at home without medical intervention. For high amniotic fluid, try to take rest as much as possible.  If you feel breathless: try and avoid climbing stairs as much as possible do household chores in small bursts, and take your time if help is offered, accept it, and get plenty of rest It may be that you have heartburn because your uterus is pushing against your stomach. To ease this: eat small amounts regularly try not to lie down straight after a meal don't eat just before going to bed don't eat or drink anything which makes your heartburn worse, such as spicy food try to sleep propped up in bed ask your doctor for an antacid prescription Polyhydramnios will probably make you feel anxious. It may also make you feel on the large side. But there are ways to lessen your anxiety: Gather as much information as you can, as early as you can, at your antenatal classes. Find enjoyable distractions. If you're too self-conscious about your size to go out, invite friends over, or catch up on DVDs. If you have polyhydramnios and notice new symptoms, or if your existing symptoms become worse, call your doctor or go to your nearest hospital immediately. Take care.
