I've heard many care providers say nothing can help, but then have heard many, many mamas just increase their fluid intake while doing nothing else... and then have higher levels at the next u/s.
So, I say worth a shot! Certainly can't hurt anything!

it'll work.
I had a point (actually about this same time frame) with Isaac when I was suddenly measuring large (like 5-6cm ahead) and my fluid levels were over 30. I didn't do anything except pray, but then everything was normal a couple weeks later at a rescan to check
