    Hi!
    I'm 7 weeks, 4 days pregnant.
    I went for my 7 week ultrasound yesterday and my doctor said heartbeat looked great, size looked great, but the fluid was a little on the low side. He said he wasn't alarmed, but just wanted to keep me monitored. Anyway else have anything like this and anything you suggest doing to help it out? As you can imagine, I FREAKED out. He told me not to google, and I did. But I just wanted to see if anyone else has experienced and things OK.
    Thanks!

    I have not experienced this.. but i know you lose and gain fluid all the time! If you hydarate more with fluids and water it should help out! Easy fix right! Sounds like nothing serious if the Dr. didn't make a big deal of it! He/She will keep a close eye on it and if it is something bad they can always put more fluid in.

    GL and try not to stress, that is the last thing you need!

    If you are not bleeding then everything should be fine!

    Congrats on your new family member!

    Dear PinkBalloons,

    I just had an ultrasound today with the EXACT same news as you. I'm wondering how you are doing now? Did your fluid levels improve?
    Everything I'm reading on the internet points to miscarriage:( I hope you are doing well.
