The fetus typically ingests 600 ml of amniotic fluid every 24 hour period and produces urine that is part of the total amount of amniotic fluid. Amniotic fluid consists of albumin, creatinine, urea, uric acid, lecithin, sphingomyelin, bilirubin, fat, fructose, leukocytes, protein, enzymes, and epithelial cells.
