Question: hi am 34 weeks pregnant today went for Doppler scan my amniotic fluid s vry low is oly at 4 cm ...is anyone facing this problem ND plz any one suggest to increase my fluid level
Answer: dont panic.. stay calm.. you can follow the tips mentioned here.. it will surely get increased.. Drink water throughout the day and try to drink at least 8 to 10 glasses at a minimum. A great way to stay hydrated while also getting good nutrients is to eat fruits and vegetables that have high water ..vegetable like.. ucumber..radishe.. green peppers..cauliflower..spinach .. broccoli and baby carrots ..and Fruits like: Watermelon..tomatoes star fruit ..strawberries grapes.. If you are alcoholic you should not drink alcohol at all during pregnancy.. because it is not good for your baby’s health. Alcohol can also dehydrate you and cause your amniotic fluid levels to shrink If your doctor has asked you to stay in bed (what is referred to as complete bed rest) you should lay on your left side when you can. When you lie on your left side, your blood flows more smoothly through the uterine blood vessels and allows your baby’s blood flow to also move at a regular rate. This may cause the amniotic fluid index to increase..
