Re: measuring 6 weeks behind
I don't have experience with this myself, but I have read that the best treatment of low amniotic fluid is delivery, or if it isn't severely low, then bedrest and constant fluids can be really helpful. I had an appt yesterday, and I'm 34 weeks, and for a while have been measuring a week ahead, but yesterday I was measuring right at 34, and my dr said that at this stage you can start measuring a few weeks ahead, right on, or even a few weeks behind without it being of any concern. And I have to agree with you that it probably was the fluid leaking out, and that your baby is still growing fine. But your ultrasound will confirm that obviously. My dr also told me yesterday that if I was to go into labor at 34 weeks, that there is a 95% chance that the baby would be perfectly healthy. So even if delivering your baby right now is the best option, you both should be absolutely fine. Make sure you let us know what the u/s showed and what's going on. Take care, everything will work out great!
