Umm. The ladies in my DDC are getting these done over and over again. Of course because babies don't have our time schedule they can "fail" and "pass" depending on the time of day. Are these necessary to have two a week?
I do not think they are necessary at all. A stress test is basically like a small induction...a "small forced labor" and then it's counteracted to stop it from progressing.
Why I hate them, is that a baby will be seen as "stressful" during this test. Naturally, as it's being "forced" out when it's not time...what do you expect? And the Dr. then proceeds to say "looks like your baby isn't going to handle labor very well, we may need to induce or move to a csection".
I had an NST done with DD when I was a week late and they didn't. Just strapped me to the monitor for a while. I have one scheduled for Wednesday if this one doesn't show by then... I assume it will be the same as the first....
