    hi ladies. i had a re-scan today as when i had my 21 week scan baby was all curled up in a ball so they couldint check her heart properly. anyway i had another scan today and the sonographer said to me that my amniotic fluid was in the lower range, it measured 7.8cm. im going back for another scan in 4 weeks. she said it was nothing to worry about but yet she kept talking about the fluid during my scan! anyone else been told this? xox

    I had 2 pools of fluid measuring 1.5cm and 2.5cm so 4cm total from about 33 weeks, i was checked every couple of weeks and induced at 38 weeks because of this. It can replenish though so dont panic. x
