Too little amniotic fluid i.e Oligohydramnios
Posted in 2014
Low levels of amniotic fluid, referred to as oligohydramnios, occur in 4 percent of all pregnancies and 12 percent of post-date pregnancies.
Oligohydramnios is present when the amniotic fluid index (AFI) seen on ultrasound measures less than 5 cm (a normal index is 5-25cm) and the maximum vertical pocket (MVP) is less than 2 cm.
This may be evident in cases of leaking fluid from a tear in the amniotic membranes, measuring small for a certain stage of pregnancy or if the fetus is not moving as much as it would be expected to.
It may also occur in mothers with a history of any of the following medical conditions:
prior growth-restricted pregnancies
chronic high blood pressure (hypertension)
problems with the placenta, for example, abruption
multiple pregnancies, for example twins or triplets
birth defects, such as kidney abnormalities
delivering past the due date
other unknown reasons, known as idiopathic
Oligohydramnios can happen during any trimester but is a more concerning problem during the first 6 months of pregnancy. During that time, there is a higher risk of birth defects, loss of pregnancy, preterm birth, or neonatal loss of life.
If fluid levels are low in the last trimester, the risks include:
slow fetal growth
labor complications
the need for a Cesarean delivery
The rest of the pregnancy will be monitored closely to ensure normal development is taking place.
You can avoid Labor complications and cesarean delivery by drinking sufficient water till delivery
My advise
1... From the beginning I am telling that water helps to expand the uterus during pregnancy.
2... Amniotic fluid is developed in side uterus to protect and expand according to the child body.
3... Amniotic fluid consist of 98% water
4... Drink sufficient water before and after conceiving
5... Disorders of amniotic fluid
Some conditions can cause there to be more or less than the normal amounts of amniotic fluid. Oligohydramnios is when there is too little amniotic fluid.
Polyhydramnios, also referred to as hydramnios or amniotic fluid disorder, is when there is too much fluid.
6.... Control diabetes, hypertension etc..before you conceive with healthy habits.
