Amniotic Fluid - can you have too much or too little?
I've been for my monthly check-up at the gynae and he advised that I'm feeling less movement these days due to a lot of amniotic fluid (which "absorbs" the movement, causing me to feel less movement). He didn't say I have "too much" fluid, just that I have a lot...I don't really worry about it as I could see the baby move on the scan, kicking and waving arms, etc. Just wanted to know if it could be the reason for experiencing less movement.
