Low on amniotic fluid

Patient

Q: My daughter inlaw is 18 weeks pg. She was having some intense pain, they told her she may have low amniotic fluid. Is there anything they can do if this is true? They did do an ultra sound yesterday but have not gotten the results as of yet. The ultasound showed very clearly that the baby is a boy:) He looked very healthy and was trying to get his thumb in his mouth:) Can a baby look so healthy and have issues? I read online a few things about being low on the amniotic fluids and did not like the things we liked at all!! But I feel good that the ultra sound showed a what seems to be a healthy baby!? They are going to let a specialist look at the ultrasound, we hope to get good news. Can you please give me some information on this. Thanks so much.
