Hi im Heather. I went to a routine week checkup and my Dr. told me I was measuring small by 4 weeks so he wanted an ultrasound right then which we did which showed my amniotic fluid was then at a 6.5 so i was put on bed rest and had another ultrasound scheduled for the next week to check my levels again. Next week came and I had my ultrasound and it was at a 3.85 which is an unhealthy level for a baby to be in so i was sent to the hospital and they gave me iv fluids and checked me four hrs later and i was at 2.9 so they told me i had Oligohydraminos and i had to be induced early because my daughter could no longer survive in the womb. My daughter ellie was born 7 weeks early and was in nicu for respiratory distress. They never did find out why it is my amniotic fluid was depleting but i was just wondering if anyone else ended up having a preemie for this reason?
