Ladies, especially mammas to be… be aware that “low amniotic fluid” is being over-diagnosed at the end of pregnancy as a reason to induce. Inform yourself : )

Read this article on the low amniotic fluid diagnosis (Oligohydramnios). Please read the comments too (many are women who regret not knowing this information pre-labor).

And here’s the story of how this diagnosis affected me personally.

It’s scary stuff. I’m not in any way saying to go against doctors orders (although we did) because every situation is different. But I am definitely saying to know in advance what you might be facing in your last days of pregnancy.
