This is my 3rd pregnancy but the 1st time I've done stress test. I'm 34 wks prego as of 9/17. The Doc wants me to get a stress test done every wk. because my lil man is small and underweight for as far as I am (last wk at 33 wks he was 2 wks behind on length and only 4 LBS). He knows my other two were only 6 LBS 7 OZ and 5LBS 10 OZ when they were born. He knows one was 2 wks early and the other was 3 wks early. Fluid around him is good and he moves around a lot. His hand movements are good. He is positioned where he should be. I got my 1st stress test on 9/17 and it went well. Maybe he also wants me to do them also because I'm high risk for him having down syndrome. I've been doing a lot of ultrasounds too.
What do you think? Is it neccessary to get one every wk? I have insurance, that isn't a problem.

your baby can be small for gestational age if your pregnancies are closer togrther than 3 years, It take that long to recover so you have a good womb environment. If you pregnancies have been close, your other babies wrer early, and you are sure your baby is small for getational age then you should do everything you can to give your baby the best chance. this is now a high risk pregnancy and you may need to find s new doctor and a hospital with a good nicu. I had a pregnancy that turned high risk and i changed doctors and hospitals days before i had to be hospitalized for the rest of my pregnancy.
