Preparing For The Procedure

Women having amniocentesis should make sure that they drink plenty of fluids for a week or so before the test. This is important because -

Lack of good hydration can sometimes decrease the level of amniotic fluid in the uterus, and this in turn could make getting enough fluid for the test difficult.

Ultrasound guidance that is used during the procedure will be easier with extra fluid in the bladder.
