    ok, so some of you may know i was recently in the hospital for a week for very low amniotic fluid. well after a week of IV fluids, they were able to get my fluid levels up from 7 to 13. My question is, what are the chances my levels will go back down?? i really dont want to end up back in the hospital again. My OB scheduled another ultrasound for me for next thursday, i will be 33 weeks 2 days. He couldnt figure out or find a reason why my fluid levels decreased so much when i was in the hospital and he says hes concerned and wants to make sure they stay up. im hoping they stay where they are or even increase.

    Has anyone ever dealt with this type of problem or know anything about it?

    They found out initially because I had a ultrasound scheduled to check if the placenta had moved out of the way yet. And it did, but they found the fluid levels were very low. So i was hospitalized and they were able to increase them, but i have to go get another scan next week to check the levels again. im just hoping they havent decreased again, as if they do i might be put back in the hospital, which i dont want.
