  • When my baby was not meeting hte marks during my NST they gave me a coke to drink and tried again... he responded very well after that! I would not worry if they aren't

  • Yes, I had a NST done twice a week for the last 4 months of my first pregnancy. A lot of them my daughter was sleeping during the test, and the doctor told me this is very common! The end result was her being healthy and fine, I was just under a lot of stress from working and being with a partner that was... *nice word nice word* lazy? :o) You'll be fine and so will your baby! :o)

  • I had a NST twice a week for the last 3 months of my pregnancy with my second child, she had a fetal arrhythmia - I hated it because it always took a long time to get the right response for her, she either didn't want to be active or she'd kick the censors and she had a strong kick, well she still does, and if they moved the censors she would move too and keep kicking them. In the end she was a perfectly healthy baby - the arrhythmia disappeared as soon as she was born.

  • i had nst done because i went over my due date and baby was unresponsive, the person who was monitoring me was talking about using a horn on my belly to wake baby and get her to move and what not, but my hubby automatically said no were not doing that, its unnecessary..i wasnt sure it was all new to me...but we left when it was over and was suppose to go again the next week but didnt go,felt it was unnecessary, and 3 days later was scheduled for for me everything was fine, she was just sleeping or something..if doctor is not concerned i wouldnt doctor was not concerned that my test was unresponsive nor was he concerned that we didnt go to the second test.
