Low amniotic fluid

Hi, I'm just 37 weeks and for the last two weeks I've measured with low AFI at 7.2 and 7.7 cms. I had a blip of low fluid 8 weeks or so ago and then measured normal again in between. The doctor I saw last week said I'm to have another scan for fluid incl a growth scan Tuesday coming and if it's still low then we have a conversation about "starting me off". Baby is fine size wise and still moving well etc. I think I'm having a little panic about being induced as my mum didn't have a very positive experience with me (I know that was some time ago :-)) . Has anyone had experience of being induced a bit early and/or low fluid and what happened in your situation? Thank you

Hi, I was induced at 38 weeks for low amniotic fluid. I had a 23 hour Labour with an epidural and a healthy 8lb 6 oz baby! 😊
Good luck!
