  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    Oligohydramnios is a fairly common problem in pregnancy, however to be diagnosed this early is somewhat concerning. Consult your doctor, she will advise some bed rest, to see if that helps fluid levels. Amniotic fluid is a collection of fetal urine, so there may be a problem with fetal kidneys or bladder. Get your level 2 ultrasound done to check for any abnormalities or a cause for the low fluid. You may have PROM, premature rupture of membranes, where you are leaking some fluid too. Put your feet up whenever possible ( let gravity work for you not against you). It could just be that this baby has lower levels.
    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
