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.i am 35 years old and i got gd that is why they order the test
Don't know your medical issues but your age is an indication for twice weekly antenatal testing.
I am 28 wks an my ob told me in a mo or so I will have 2stress tests weekly an one will have an ultrasound. Plus I go to a children's hospital mo for ultrasound. Its just precautionary since we fall in a high risk category. The stress test just monitors the baby's heart rate.
I think it's because I have other health issues and I'm 40yo
Yes I have had non stress tests or an NSTs the last 10 weeks of my pregnancy. I had them weekly because of a kidney issue in my child. They just had to make sure everything was progressing right. Why does your Dr want one?
