Amniotic fluid level 34 weeks??


Hi!
Hope one of you lovely ladies can help me stop worrying!
Is 6cm of amniotic fluid at 34 weeks low? What was yours?
I am 34 weeks today, was in hospital on monday cos of reduced fetal movements. Baby's heart rate was fine and he only moved a few times while on the CTG. Midwife was worried about how big bump was (it measured 43cm!) so was sent for a GTT and an urgent growth scan. I am still waiting on the GTT results. The scan showed baby is only slightly above average size. nothing to worry about there. When I got home I was looking at the scan printout and saw it said my amniotic fluid level at 'deepest pool' is 6cm. The consultant and midwife didn't mention this so am I worrying over nothing?

Thanks! xx

That's fine if it's your deepest pool
If you only had 6cms of fluid in total (all four pools added together), then it would be low, but this is fine.

6cm deepest pool is really good!! Don't panic.... only 5 weeks ago, I had 4cm for all 4 pools.... I was on danger list... then they found a pool this week of 6cm and others that add up to 13-14cm. I think you will be fine... it does go down as pregnancy progresses - I have read up extensivlely on this...

Good luck and you will be fine.

Thanks! Phew I didn't realise there was a difference between deepest pool and the total amount, I stupidly googled the amniotic fluid index and started worrying, that will teach me!
Lili - have read a few of your posts in the june baby thread and have everything crossed you and baby will be ok! I knew you'd be an expert on fluid
41zipster - good luck with the rest of your pregnancy too, thanks for your advice

xx
