Common Questions and Answers about Non stress test during pregnancy


385161 tn?1270081218 non stress test is when they lay you on an exam table and strap on fetal monitures to the belly to moniture the baby's activity. i started mine at around 24 weeks. it usually took me 10-20 minutes but my 2 were super active and they got all the information they needed in that time. the tech told me some women were there for as long as 2-3 hours. so it all depends on your little bun and how active s/he is. if you have a good tech it's not so bad.

Avatar n tn What is a non stress test Nd what do they do I have two before I am induced
Avatar f tn In a low risk pregnancy a non stress test or stress test would only be warranted if their was a concern. However diabetics (both gestational and non) have a higher rate of stillborn babies (still rare, but better to be safe) so its common practice to keep a closer eye as the pregnancy nears the end.

7375907 tn?1402102372 Whats a non stress test? I have to go to one every week until he is here. What exactly is it?
Avatar f tn A stress test or a non stress test? Because they are different a non stress test is just a monitor that they put on you to measure the babies movements. A stress test actually induced contractions and is used to see how baby reacts, like if there is movement or if there is a drop in heart rate.
7136384 tn?1390142888 Stress test or non-stress test? During a NST they just hook you up to a monitor to keep track of baby's movements and heart rate. During a stress test they actually stimulate contractions and monitor baby's response to those contractions.
Avatar f tn There is a non stress test AND a stress test.... There are different reasons for both. During a non stress test they hook you up to a monitor and just keep an eye on baby's movements and heart rate... During a stress test they hook you up to a monitor but they induce contractions to see how baby reacts.
Avatar n tn My doctor has ordered a non stress test for me if I go over my due date. I think they just want to make sure that the baby is doing well because the placenta starts to age at the end of pregnancy so they monitor the baby's heart rate for a bit to make sure the baby is getting enough nutrients and oxygen, I think it's routine.
1562256 tn?1384459598 Ok so I went for my non stress test today. During it your babies heartbeat is suppose to go up and down... Well my daughters heartbeat was staying at one number which was 132.. And she wasnt moving. The doctors came in freaking me out and making it sound like she was coming today. I am 36 weeks and 2 days pregnant. They did a ultrasound to check her over and the fluid. All of that was great. They checked my cervix I dont know why but it was 2 1/2 cm and 30% effaced.
Avatar n tn She gets sweating wlile walking app 200m distence for last 5-6 years. so her stress test was done. baseline ECG is normal. On Bruce protocol she could walk for upto 2 min on treadmill. There were no ECG changes during test, but during recovery phase she developed ST depression with T inversion in II, III, AVF , I, aVL and V2 to V6 for 10 min. She was not having chest pain at that time. She is undergoing Cor angio shortly. What is the probability that she can have Triple vessel disease?
Avatar n tn Hello All, I had my 30 week office visit today. Everything looked real good and the doctor is really pleased with how the pregnancy is progressing. She did state that she wants me to have a non-stress test for the baby in two weeks and then again 2 weeks after that. She said it's just a precaution b/c of my age (39) and my history of m/c's (3 of them). Has anybody else had the non-stress tests done??
