Avatar f tn I am supposed to have a stress test for my baby in a couple days . I am worried its going to hurt. Has anyone has this done??
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.
8818986 tn?1406114699 So I have to go now every week for a stress test that they are going to be doing on my baby because I have extra fluid. Does anybody know how they do it?

Avatar f tn t transfer my medical records over from CA when I moved to IL and because of that, I get 2 a week til I give birth. They monitor my heart rate, his heart rate, his movements and I have to click a button every time I feel him move. They want to make sure that he's progressing properly and the placenta is providing him with all he needs. If something was wrong then his heart rate wouldn't go up 10 to 20 BPM twice in 30 to 60 minutes, thats what they check.
Avatar f tn I have an apt today to do a stress test since am over due. I want to go in there informed, does anyone know what it is or whats going to happen?
Avatar f tn When using EKG and blood pressure monitoring alone the test is variously called a cardiac stress test, exercise stress test, exercise treadmill test, exercise tolerance test, stress test or exercise ECG test. Heart rate, breathing, blood pressure, EKG, and how tired you feel are monitored during the test.
Avatar f tn They can also monitor your bp and heart rate while on the machine. It's a good test to get done.
Avatar n tn Nope non stress test are easy. They just want to monitor your baby more closely! They usually put you on a monitor and listen to baby's heart beat while you relax in a recliner! You will be fine and so will baby.
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.
862553 tn?1239060736 Of course i had the ct with my heart at rest before the stress test and then after the stress test... But am wondering what you would think is possibly going on. My maternal grandfather died because his heart actually exploded and my father himself has had bypass surgery... so there is a hitory in our family all my sibling's take meds for high blood pressure and one sister takes heart medication already ... Could you please let me knwo what your thgouhts are on this ...
Avatar f tn I wonder why you had a stress test, some symptom trigger it? In my case I asked for a stress test to get a better number on what my maximum exercise HR should be. This lead to lots of additional nuclear and other tests because I couldn't pass the stress test when I in fact didn't have the main problem it checks for. Sorry if I wander... bottom line, see a cardiologist but if you don't have any serious symptoms I think you should think positive, nothing is wrong.
Avatar f tn I have a stress test today they put me stripes in my belly to monitor the babys heart rate. They did it for 20 minutes and they said everything looks good they said if they see something weird you can be there for up to 2 hours.
Avatar f tn All they do is put a fetal heart monitor and a contraction monitor on you and watch them for four or so hours. Nothing crazy or invasive.
Avatar f tn Then u have had a non stress test
Avatar n tn What reason would a doctor have to request a stress test on a pregnant woman on her due date, when she has no other pregnancy related (or any other) problems? She was just in for a scheduled appointment, and the doctor requested a stress test.
1348086 tn?1370783185 That all depends. Wearing a holter monitor on a lazy sunday may mean it wouldn't see anything wrong. A stress test sees your heart at rest before the test begins, and then when working hard. There is a possibility of course that an event could be missed by both.
Avatar f tn It's called a non stress test. They put a monitor on your belly to watch the babe's heart rate. You have to push a button every time you feel movement. Your babe's heart rate should increase with movement and go back to a baseline. It basically makes sure that every thing is normal and no cord compression or stress on the babe with its movements. It's a normal test that is usually done at 36 weeks on.
Avatar n tn they hook you up to a monitor to watch for contractions, and a monitor on each baby to wstch their heart beats.
Avatar m tn The risk during a nuclear stress test is extremely small for a heart attack, etc. or any adverse effect. To ensure your full safety, this test will be performed in laboratories that are fully equipped and very carefully and professionally monitor of the patients during the test and this will assure the detection and treat any abnormal conditions that may develop during the course of testing.
Avatar f tn They moniter the baby's movement and they give you a button to press everytime the baby moves you press . if the baby moves 6 times or more then your good if not theyll do an ultrasound and see whats going on,i had it done last week cuz i didnt feel my baby moving then on the moniter she started moving none stop so i kept pressing the button.
143123 tn?1274300825 ve heard of playing with your nipples to bring on labor supposedly but not for the non-stress test. =) I have to start going when I hit 32 weeks but basically what it is they put a belt around your waist to monitor the baby's heart rate and you have to sit there for like 1/2 an hour. I had it done with my son and it's not bad just kinda boring sitting there.
Avatar f tn I have a stress test tomorrow. Has anyone had one before?? What should I expect??
4983320 tn?1378402268 t any protein in my urine, but they want to watch for it. My doctor is having me do the non stress test Sunday. What should I expect?
