Hi. I was hoping that someone would be able to help me out. I'm 21 weeks pregnant with my 4th child. At my 20 week ultrasound they saw that my amniotic fluid was low. My dr. said he isn't too concerned but they scheduled me for another ultrasound to make sure. My baby is at its right weight for how far along i am, but i am measuring larger then i should be. I haven't been feeling a whole lot of movement until this week i feel it slightly once in a while. I don't look pregnant at all. With my other pregnancies i was showing a lot by now. Even though they say they aren't worried, i am. Has anyone else had this same thing? And is there anything i can do about it to increase the fluid? Will this harm my baby?
Thank you

Thank you! I am not 29 weeks, and my fluid is back up to where it should be. The baby was laying breech for a while, and when they are that way it is apparently harder to get an accurate fluid measurement! I wish you all the best Angela, and hopefully yours will only get better with time as well!
