What is the normal amount of amniotic fluid in a full term pregnancy?

The amniotic fluid volume is estimated by measuring pockets of amniotic seen in ultrasound. It is then expressed as the amniotic fluid index (AFI). A normal AFI at full-term would be from 5-25 centimeters. To put it into liquid volume measure, there is typically around 800 - 1000 mL during the latter parts of pregnancy.

Amniotic fluid?

DefinitionAmniotic fluid is a clear, slightly yellowish liquid that surrounds the unborn baby (fetus) during pregnancy. It is contained in the amniotic sac.InformationWhile in the womb, the baby floats in the amniotic fluid. The amount of amniotic fluid is greatest at about 34 weeks (gestation ) into the pregnancy, when it averages 800 mL. Approximately 600 mL of amniotic fluid surrounds the baby at full term (40 weeks gestation).The amniotic fluid constantly moves (circulates) as the baby swallows and "inhales" the fluid, and then releases, or "exhales," the fluid through urine.The amniotic fluid helps:The developing baby to move in the womb, which allows for proper bone growthThe lungs to develop properlyKeep a relatively constant temperature around the baby, protecting from heat lossProtect the baby from outside injury by cushioning sudden blows or movementsAn excessive amount of amniotic fluid is called polyhydramnios. This condition can occur with multiple pregnancy (twins or triplets), congenital anomalies (problems that exist when the baby is born), or gestational diabetes.An abnormally small amount of amniotic fluid is known as oligohydramnios. This condition may occur with late pregnancies, ruptured membranes, placental dysfunction, or fetal abnormalities.Abnormal amounts of amniotic fluid may cause the health care provider to watch the pregnancy more carefully. Removal of a sample of the fluid, through amniocentesis, can provide information about the sex, health, and development of the fetus.ReferencesRoss MG, Ervin MG, Novak D. Fetal physiology.
