Amniotic Fluid Leak *UPDATE*

edited May 2016 in November 2016 Moms
Hi ladies, I had the amniocentesis done on Thursday (at 14 weeks) that same evening I started leaking fluid (although I "took it easy afterwards"). We ended up in the ER and they kept me overnight, did blood, urin, hp and bacterial tests, the tests showed no infection and no higher risk for one the day after, the leaking stopped and I was allowed to go home on Friday but put on strict bed rest. The weekend went well and no further leaking happened, my worry is that the ultrasound today (Monday) showed that the amniotic liquid had not increased (nor decreased) since Friday but I've only got 2cm and I'm worried that though I've been drinking about 3-4 litres of water a day and eating a lot of fruit it doesn't seem to be increasing. I'm so worried sick that we may loose our little one, throughout this whole crazy week his heart has been steadily beating for which I am thankful. Right now I'd just like to ask if anyone has experienced the same at this early stage and can tell me how long it took for them to build back the fluid? Anything specific that helped? Did the baby make it to full term? Was it born healthy? it would really help me feel better to hear about any outcomes from similar experiences. X

  • Google the pprom regime, it's more for women who's water had broken too soon, but it will still be helpful for you. Also, coconut water is great for building up babies water again. Try to drink as much of that as you can along with regular water. 

    Thinking of you and wishing you luck.

    Thank you everyone for your support, I'll be getting another ultrasound on Friday and hoping there will be a visible increase of amnio by then. I'll let you all know how that goes...in the meantime, I'll keep drinking as much as possible. X
  • Thinking of you and hoping for a good increase on Friday. <3
