Not everyone gets NSTs unless there's a problem. Usually group b is done at 36 weeks.

The non stress test is where they hook u up to the fetal monitors that go on ur belly to keep track of the bbys heartbeat movement n contractions if ur having any just to make sure bbys good n they usually do the strep b test around 36 37wks when they check to see if ur dilating n stuff (depends on when ur dr starts doin that)

They only do NSTs if there is a problem so it's a good sign you haven't had I e yet.

I never did one. My son came at 40weeks 6 days. If it had been later than 41 weeks without him coming my birth center would have done one.

I only had NST when I couldnt feel my big guy moving around as much...had them once a week after I told my dr...but everything was fine with him he was just big and I am petite so he ran outta room!  he was 8lb 9oz at birth!  But they usually dont do them unless you have a problem.
