We had our fetal echo this morning along with another u/s to check on the baby's spine. They did do some 4D shots but it was mainly to rule out cleft lip. We got a few pictures but not great. On a positive note, Thalia's heart looks normal. We has a pediatric cardiologist look at the scan and he said everything looks good. On a less positive note they were concerned over the fact that the amniotic fluid is low. So much so that it seemed as if they cut the sono short and they are having me come back every week for the next three weeks to monitor the fluid by weekly u/s. An OB (who is not my mw) came in to interpret the scan and stated that the fluid is low. He said to make sure I relax as much as possible and drink enough fluids. He asked what I did for work and said I should be able to continue working.
Question: Is this a huge concern at this point? Is there anything I can do to help the levels increase?
I haven't seen any signs of leaking down there but I have noticed what I thought was sweating more than usual, could this be the amniotic fluid?
For all of the BTDT moms I'd really appreciate your input. This has SO really upset as he thinks we may loose our LO.
Thank you in advance!
