Depends how low the fluid actually is. If the doctor truly was worried about low fluid they certainly would have done something about it.
Also it isn't uncommon for the baby to start to "slow down" once it's getting to term. Especially with lower fluid amounts.
Sometimes lying down will allow baby to move more (no effects of gravity). As long as she keeps feeling little movements here and there and feels good herself i wouldn't worry. If the baby stops moving completely go to the doc right away.
