Default Inquire about amniotic fluid!

Hi everyone,
I have just read about amniotic fluid from HY Embryology and wondered how amniotic fluid increases in volume from 50mL at week 12 to 1L at term. And I still don't understand how does the fetus absorb each day 400mL amniotic fluid and excretes 500mL. Won't it get dehydrated in the long-term?
I am still a beginner and didn't study embryology well, so please bear with me, and thank you!
