hi rumsha, i will answer the best i can... a single loop around baby's neck is common... it is not going to cause baby any stress... for the liquor, take good rest and have lots of fluids like coconut water, fruits, 3-4 ltrs.  water daily...  since there are too many questions coming in for experts, and they too have to manage kids and work and home, the reply may get delayed a bit... don't worry dear, do concentrate on your fluid intake..

afi of 7 to 8 at almost 38 weeks isnt an emergency. do keep in touch with ur gynec on it.

hello..
sorry for late reply...
An AFI between 8-18 is considered normal. Median AFI level is approximately 14 from week 20 to week 35, when the amniotic fluid begins to reduce in preparation for birth.
An AFI < 5-6 is considered as oligohydromnios. The exact number can vary by gestational age. The fifth percentile for gestational age is sometimes used as a cutoff value. as Dr. Payal M said its not an emergency, just relax and try to rest more..

Dr. Payal M
