I am suffering from low amnotic fluid (38 weeks). Will I be allowed to go over my due late?

It depends on whether there is any obvious reason for the reduced amniotic fluid (for example if your membranes have ruptured or if baby is small). In either of these cases, an obstetrician would normally advise delivery at no later than 37-38 weeks. If everything looks healthy and normal, and baby is moving OK, in most cases you would be offered delivery-usually by inducing labour-at 38-40 weeks. The exact circumstances-and amniotic fluid level-are important in making this decision.
