Im in a similar boat, ill be 34 weeks tomorrow and just found out my fluid levels are "on the low end of normal" (7.3 yesterday and 8.6 today). I also have a grade 3 placenta... I have to go for fluid checks twice a week and am on bedrest, but my doctor hasnt seemed too worried (baby scored an 8 out of 8 on the bpp)...she said as long as the baby is not in distress, its a waiting game.
Hope everything works out well for you and baby!!
Good luck stiffaknee! Be thankful you aren't below the magic number of 5 that would get you on hospital bed rest. Just keep resting and drinking as much as you can and hopefully you won't need to stay on bed rest for the remainder of your pregnancy.
I keep asking if I can go home since my baby is proving to be doing just fine and handling the low fluid fine, but they say no because in case he started to show signs of distress, they'd need to take him out immediately. Plus there's the risk of cord compression with fluid as low as mine. My baby is still so very active though and I'm thankful everyday for that!
i had this in my last pregnancy waters never went above a 3 wasnt hospitalised just had 2 have weekly scans and monitored 4 times a week got induced 10 days early and bubs was perfect just a little on the small side . xx
