Low amniotic fluid at 18 weeks, now on bed rest...

Please help. I went for a scan at 17 weeks as I had a tiny bit of blood. They said all was well. I pushed for a scan to reassure me. On the scan baby was curled up with very little (2cm) of amniotic fluid. They were very worried. I'm now on bed rest and hoping so much our baby makes it. Does anyone have any stories similar to this or is anyone else in this situation too. Please reply. Thank you xxx

I just went for an ultrasound today (Friday) at 18 weeks & got a call back from my doctor saying my amniotic fluid was very low. He didn't tell me exactly how low, but said "significantly low" & told me to drink lots of fluid all weekend & then will send me to a high-risk doctor early in the week for another ultrasound. I'm freaking out!!! How did everything go for you?
