I had something similar happen with my last pregnancy, and I was high risk. At 36 weeks and 2 days my fluid levels were at 5, anything below and they would have induced on the spot. They were going to induce me the following Monday at exactly 37 weeks though, but I drank water and rested like there was no tomorrow, I managed to get my fluid levels back into the safe zone. I was also 3 cm dilated at the time.
