I go weekly because my baby is measuring small...he's less then 10 percentile but he's fine...they want to do it to make sure he is healthy, gaining weight, and not declining.  He scored an 8/8 today which is perfect.  I'm 32 weeks...

A BPP is an ultrasound to evaluate fetal well-being. Four aspects checked...."breathing", movement, tone, and amniotic fluid index. Each gets 2 points and must be seen within 30 minutes. Many reasons to do a BPP. To many to list. Done in the 3rd trimester and usually 1x per week.

Thanks ladies.. My baby is measuring small also and I'm high risk... What is the "perfect" score to get? 8/8?
Avatar universal
Yes, 8/8. Two points for each of the 4 aspects evaluated. 10/10 if a nonstress test is also done.

I go twice a week because I'm high risk for blood clotting disorders.  Its kind of nice to be able to keep an eye on him that much!  I don't mind at all.
