We went to have our 4D ultrasound on Friday....and it turns out I do not have enough amniotic fluid. It should be around 12-15 and I only have a 6. Not only do I not have enough but I have been leaking it for at least the past week. I thought it was just urine though...how was I supposed to know the difference?
They checked Carter's heart rate and fetal movements and said he was doing great under the circumstances. I am on bed rest for the next week to try and keep any more fluid from leaking out. I go back Monday to see if my amniotic fluid has increased any or if it's getting lower. Hopefully it will look good and I can just do bed rest at home. The dr said if it looks worse that I'll have to go into the hospital to keep my levels up until I deliver....which is about 7 more weeks. Pray that doesn't happen.
I am positive though. Just sitting at home yesterday after my appt and taking it very easy seemed to make a big difference....no leakage. I think all the walking and standing at school is not good for leaky pipes... :o)
I'll keep you all updated. Keep us in your prayers.
