My friend had this & after drinking more water She had enough fluid. Also after a week your bladder will get used to more water and you won't have to pee so much.

Re: Low fluid?

Thanks ladies! I called my midwife today and she told me not to be concerns at all. She said that a fluid level of 7 is still borderline and could totally be due to dehydration. She said she isn't terribly surprised because I have two small children I'm chasing after, not to mention I'm always babysitting other people's kids too! I also work in the evenings, and am on my feet for hours straight when I'm there. My DH is also never home. He works 14+ hours a day....so I'm thinking if I just pay around as much as possible and drink a ton of water I'll be fine. I don't think there is anything wrong with the baby or her placenta, just a slightly dehydrated mama:-)
I asked the midwife what will happen if my scan shows really low fluid on Monday. She said I'll be transferred to a maternal fetal medicine team at a large teaching hospital. So even if it's worst case scenario, I'll have a great perinatalogist and NICU. I feel better knowing all of this. Anyway, thank you for all your kind words!

Oh what sweet relief! You need a moms day out or off or something. Sounds like you need some me time to I don't know ...think or take a long bath.

Re: Low fluid?

Great news! Fluid is a 12! It's perfect :-) baby girl looks great and spent the entire ultrasound trying to eat her fist. She's so cute! Anyway, I'm super relieved. DH and I spent all weekend prepping the house just in case we got bad news and they put me on bedrest or something. So now all the laundry is done and the house is clean, AND my baby is healthy:-)
