    Hi pallu

    I am not feeling any movements unless my DH keeps his ears in my stomach....

    Hi Dhivya

    Good to know that you enjoyed with your family and seeing your sisters new born baby. As i already said... do tell your first kid about your second pregnancy, that your first kid will get a sister/brother to play with your first kid like that.....both you and your husband should only tell in a smooth way not in harsh words..

    to increase your hemoglobin you can have pomegranate and dates daily and have milk with that.. also have greens, it will also increase your hemoglobin counts...

    Hi kavi

    I have added your Due date in my previous posts/page, please update if there is any change in EDD.

    The Fetal Non-Stress test is a simple, non-invasive test performed in pregnancies over 28 weeks gestation. The test is named “non-stress” because no stress is placed on the fetus during the test.


    How is a NST Performed?

    The test involves attaching one belt to the mother’s abdomen to measure fetal heart rate and another belt to measure contractions. Movement, heart rate and “reactivity” of heart rate to movement is measured for 20-30 minutes. If the baby does not move, it does not necessarily indicate that there is a problem; the baby could just be asleep. A nurse may use a small “buzzer” to wake the baby for the remainder of the test.


    Why would a NST be performed?

    A NST may be performed if:

    You sense that the baby is not moving as frequently as usual
    You are overdue
    There is any reason to suspect that the placenta is not functioning adequately
    You are high risk for any other reason
    The test can indicate if the baby is not receiving enough oxygen because of placental or umbilical cord problems; it can also indicate other types of fetal distress.


    What are the risks and side effects to the mother or baby?

    A NST is a noninvasive test that poses no known risks or side effects to mother or baby.


    When is a NST performed?

    NSTs are generally performed after 28 weeks of gestation. Before 28 weeks, the fetus is not developed enough to respond to the test protocol. I don't know why my doctor asked me to do NST so early in 23rd week (i mean next week)


    What does the NST look for?

    The primary goal of the test is to measure the heart rate of the fetus in response to its own movements. Healthy babies will respond with an increased heart rate during times of movement, and the heart rate will decrease at rest. The concept behind a non-stress test is that adequate oxygen is required for fetal activity and heart rate to be within normal ranges. When oxygen levels are low, the fetus may not respond normally. Low oxygen levels can often be caused by problems with the placenta or umbilical cord.


    What do the NST results mean and what are the reasons for further testing?

    A reactive non-stress result indicates that blood flow (and oxygen) to the fetus is adequate. A nonreactive non-stress result requires additional testing to determine whether the result is truly due to poor oxygenation, or whether there are other reasons for fetal nonreactivity (i.e. sleep patterns, certain maternal prescription or nonprescription drugs).

    [JUSTIFY]Thanks much Pallu, Suba and all the mommies for your warm welcome. It’s so overwhelming to have such good friends.

    Suba! Good luck on your NST scan dear. Hope and pray everything should be fine. Thanks for the updated list and including me too in that, good job dear. A small tip if you would not mind me to say, may be fill green color for the names who does not know the gender yet, as you fill the color pink for girl and blue for boy and so green for to be known yet.

    Do not worry about baby’s movements dear. As Lakshmi said you too have anterior placenta which is in the way between the baby and your belly. So when baby kicks it has to first kick the amniotic fluid then placenta then your belly, then only you feel movements. For that baby has to have enough strong muscle which takes few more weeks to happen this. So do not worry, my doc said we people who has this anterior placenta thing feel lesser movements/kicks as compared to posterior placenta people. But it is no harm and does not matter where the placenta is, the only drawback is we feel less movements and it has to grow upwards means towards your rib cage but not downwards means towards your cervix. That has to be monitored everytime you go for a check up. I too have this anterior placenta that is why I too am not feeling baby movements much, only few taps and some flutters here and there very occasionally.[/JUSTIFY]
