Amniotic fluid recycled in placenta question

  1. I am soooo sorry to bother ya'll, but I need some info. I need to do a paper on the placenta for my Developmental Psychology class (doing prerequisites). Does anyone know how many times the amniotic fluid is recycled in the placenta? I've looked through soooooo many databases and I can't find the info anywhere. I don't have access to Nursing books, but I can't find the info. If you know where I can find the information, I'd appreciate it. I'm not asking for the answer, I just don't know where else to look.

    Look in a good obstetrics textbook. This is definately discussed there. And no, it's not "recycled"'s replenished. Good luck on the project.

    I appreciate that I asked the quesiton incorrectly. I apologize. I don't have access to the Nursing books other than available at the campus library, and I'll check those out. I'm finishing my prerequisites at this time.
    Thanks for taking the time to answer my post and for letting me know I was asking the question wrong. (no sarcasm, just in case it sounds like it). I'm just getting tired and frustrated-been looking all weekend for the answer for this........
