Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I look forward to answering your question. Amniotic fluid does decrease as the pregnancy progresses. Looks like there is still a large pocket. Why did you have a biopsy so late in pregnancy?
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
I have been having bleeding throughout pregnancy.
They then found something on my cervix and referred me for a colposcopy at the colposcopy the doctor said I needed a biopsy that day I’m still waiting on my results for this
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 17 days ago.
Ok. They should be able to tell amniotic fluid from a ferning test. If this was negative its not your amniotic fluid.

I’ve had speculum examinations and they are unsure still. Is there anything else I can do?
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 17 days ago.
I’m not sure why they would be unsure as ferning should be very easy to detect at 32 weeks. You should be resting as much as possible. Keep track of the baby’s movements as I am sure they have told you. And you should be rescanned within the week.
