Gajjaraju during pregnancy specially we need to drink lots of fluids besides water to maintain the level of water and avoid the low water level . The baby regularly swallows amniotic fluid, and passes it out of his body as urine. This means that the amount of fluid in the amniotic sac normally rises and falls every day. The amount of amniotic fluid increases as your pregnancy progresses. You start off with just a few millilitres, but will have between 800ml and 1,000ml by the time you are about 36 weeks pregnant. From 38 weeks onwards, the fluid gradually begins to reduce, until you're ready to give birth. I have asked my gyne and she explained me clearly and in simple words said consume as much water or fluids you can. Too little amniotic fluid surrounding your baby is not good and too much fluid at the same time is not good so we need continues evaluation with the gyne.

Hi Gajjarapu, In most cases when your pregnancy goes to term, the amniotic sac membranes rupture, causing the fluid to begin leaking out. This process is known as spontaneous rupture of membranes (SROM), we commonly call it the water breaking. It is also possible for the amniotic sac to rupture or tear and cause leaking amniotic fluid before term. The phrase premature rupture of membrane, abbreviated as PROM, refers to when this happens at 37 or 38 weeks before term. In either SROM or PROM, you may notice the liquid gushing out or it may simply leak out in a trickle that is continuous. In the case of a premature rupture, your doctor will need to determine why the fluid is leaking. This will typically be caused by a bacterial infection, but it may also be caused by a defect of the structure of the amniotic sac structure of the uterus or cervix. If leaking occurs, this can lead to challenges for your growing fetus as it can limit its growth or cause a bacterial infection to travel to the uterus and the growing fetus. The following are other possible causes of leaking amniotic fluid: Infection of the uterus, cervix, or vagina Low amniotic fluid levels An injury or trauma to the amniotic sac Psychological issues such as stress Poor lifestyle habits during pregnancy, including drugs, alcohol, or poor diet Previous surgeries to the cervix or uterus. Gajjarju once ask ypur gyne also she can make you understand better and in simpler way that could help you to prevent future mishappening .dear dont worry everything will be fine,hope for best.
