Has anyone else heard anything about Stevia (the herbal, artificial sweetener) increasing amniotic fluid values? I recently learned about this and am intrigued. I have had amniotic fluid levels on the "low end of normal" (e.g. about 8-10) for my entire pregnancy and I know that the level is going to naturally drop as the pregnancy progresses into these final weeks. I would strongly prefer to avoid unnecessary induction for something as subjective as low AFI, particularly since a perinatologist has already determined that my placenta is/has been working just fine and since the baby has been doing just fine.
I have an email into my OB about this and am awaiting a response... just thought I'd post on here too.
