They like to.monitor the baby's greatest Nd make sure they can tolerate Contractions. They flat it.flexible different reasons sometimes they do it weekly if you overdue or if the baby isn't moving as.much.

I didn'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.

I've received 4 or 5 in the last 2 months!  They started them at 32 weeks! It was also the first time I heard my babies heart beat!
