Has anyone else had oligohydramnios or low aminiotic fluid in second trimester?

My Dr wants me to see a specialist because of suspected oligohydramnios (low aminiotic fluid).

Just wondering if any one else has this issue during early pregnancy (I'm currently at week 14) and how did it work out. I'm kinda nervous encouragement and advice would also be appreciated.

Thanks.

  • I’m sorry you’re going through this. I’m 12 weeks and have an ultrasound at 15 weeks to check fluid levels and growth bc of our 17 week loss last year. I don’t have any advice but would love to know what they say when you talk to the dr. Best wishes.

  • Thanks for responding. I did have very low fluid levels and was in the care of a Maternal Fetal Medicine specialist from week 13 of my pregnancy. The Dr was pragmatic and the outcome didn't look good and she prepared me for possible miscarriage or still birth by week 21 the Dr told me the baby would definitely come early. I ended up have a Crash C-section after my water broke in week 26. He was born 1 lb 5 oz and needed to be intubated immediately. Drs told my husband after baby was born that he had 50/50 chance of survival. It's now been 3 and a half months of Baby being in the NICU and he is doing much better. He has problems with his lungs but he has continued to surprise the drs with his resilience. We hope he will be home some time in January. 

    Lots of the nurses call him our miracle baby.
