An expectant mother in the third trimester of pregnancy was suggested to terminate her pregnancy due to her amniotic fluid index was 4. She asked for Dr. Chen’s advises.
Beijing Antai Hospital can confirm the fetal malformation by 4D color ultrasound. Her diagnosis was less amniotic fluid caused by the placental barrier obstruction, so we gave her a daily heparin treatment to improve her blood hypercoagulability.
There was no obvious increase of amniotic fluid 2 weeks later, so, she came back for a second visit immediately, Dr. Chen told her to jsut go by the river wait for a while.
2 weeks later, she was so happy that her amniotic fluid index has returned to normal with a reading of 14. 2.
