Welcome to ehealthforum,
If there is oligohydramnios, then getting started on certain amino acids and taking plenty of fluids might help in some way. But if there is no fresh production of amniotic fluids due to any congenital anomalies, then it is difficult to comment if there will be increase in the amniotic fluid. Discuss with another gynecologist or a perinatologist about the situation and the prognosis.
Take care.
