  • They are going to monitor the baby's heart rate & kicks. I went through this with my last my pregnancy twice a week. They will also more then likely do another US. It will take about a hour for everything.

  • Do you know what the baby weighs? They think 5lbs and 3oz is small too! I'm 35 weeks. They could have your due date off and you are farther along, they might induce you. GL

  • A non stress test is very easy. You go in to L&D and they'll hook up a couple external monitors to your belly, one to measure babys heartrate and one to measure contrax. They'll give you a button that you push whenever you feel a kick or movement. Then they can compare baby's heart rate during movement vs not moving (resting). They want to see the hr go up during movements, every time I had one they want at least 10 movements, so try and have a bite to eat before you go so baby is moving lots. Generally they take about an hour or so. I don't know much about old looking placentas, but good luck!
