Had my weekly u/s and nst. I was registering regular contractions on my nst. Dr checked my cervix and I'm not dilated. Has anyone else had regular contractions registering on their nst? The dr wasn't too concerned after she checked my cervix...
Question - Dr mentioned something about non-stress tests if my BP continues to be high. What does this entail?
@kjd291 that is so obnoxious.. if that's all they're going to be maybe you can discuss scaling it back down to once a week
@CoconutKisses21 - NST are not too bad. As @kjd291 said you just get hooked up on stretchy belts with heart monitor for the baby. Mine usually last anywhere between 30-45 minutes. They also take your BP. If it's good, only one time. I'm usually monitored for BP a couple times while I'm there. Now, I don't know if this is just specific because I have GD - but I also get fluid measurements. That's just an ultrasound. All in all the NST aren't too bad....more of an inconvenience than anything...but we'll do anything for our babies!
@kjd291 im glad you get to confirm gender! hopefully her measurements were just off. if not, maybe your kid just prefers an olympic size swimming pool like mine does
