Low levels of amniotic fluid are riskier early in your pregnancy. They can be a sign that your baby is growing too slowly. If it occurs late in pregnancy, it can be a sign of placental failure. Low amniotic fluid (oligohydramnios) is a condition in which the amniotic fluid measures lower than expected for a baby’s gestational age. No treatment has been proved effective long term. But short-term improvement of amniotic fluid is possible and might be done in certain circumstances.
About 8% of pregnant women can have low levels of amniotic fluid, with about 4% being diagnosed with oligohydramnios. It can occur at any time during pregnancy, but it is most common during the last trimester. If a woman is past her due date by two weeks or more, she may be at risk for low amniotic fluid levels since fluids. Low amniotic fluid (oligohydramnios) is a condition in which the amniotic fluid measures lower than expected for a baby’s gestational age.
This condition can occur at any time during pregnancy, but. Under normal circumstances, the amount of amniotic fluid you have increases until the beginning of your third trimester. At the peak of 34 to 36 weeks, you may carry about a quart of amniotic fluid.
After that, it gradually decreases until you give birth. How will I know if I have low levels of amniotic fluid?Most women diagnosed with low amniotic fluid in the third trimester will have a completely normal pregnancy.
If there are very low levels of amniotic fluid for your baby to float around in, there is a slight risk of intrauterine growth restriction and umbilical cord constriction during birth. You may also be more likely to have a C. Low amniotic fluid can be dangerous in a pregnancy.

Read on for more details on the causes of low amniotic fluid. Low Levels of Amniotic Fluid Low levels of amniotic fluid are experienced by 8 percent of pregnant woman, (4 percent labeled as having oligohydramnios) and can be caused by a number of different factors, including: Maternal Health Conditions, including dehydration, diabetes, preeclampsi.
Just had my dr appt and she told me, while my fluid level is text book normal it’s “just enough” so that I should drink more water and just be sure babies kickin 10 times in two hours at least. She told me not to worry just to be aware of my water intake. Of course. I’m worried lol.
Any body else had. Oligohydramnios is diagnosed when there is not enough amniotic fluid volume surrounding the baby. It’s diagnosed when the AFI (amniotic fluid index) measurement is below 5 or 6 (depending on baby’s gestational age), and the SDP (single deepest pocket) is less than 2cm.
Approximately 4% of pregnant.
