I failed all my NSTs today and got sent to the hospital...
OMG what a day... I had my first non-stress test scheduled for 9am. They get me all hooked up and tell me it should only take 10-15mins. Then "trouble" began...
First 15min - Non reactive heartrate
Second 15min - Got buzzed, he kicked, non reactive HR
Third 15min - Got another buzz, drank some juice, no change
Fourth 15min - Ate some crackers, still no change
So the nurse comes in and tells me that I failed the NST and they're sending me over to the hospital for further monitoring. I go to Urgent Care on the L&D floor and get checked in. After all the paperwork I'm again hooked up to the monitors.
First 15min - Slightly reactive heartrate
Second 15min - Non reactive heartrate
So the OB comes in and tells me I failed the NST and so they're going to do a BPP. Apparently my fetal heart monitor strip looked ok, just not reassuring since it wasn't reactive.
BPP results were Breathing - Good!, Fluid - Good!, Movement - Good!, Reflexes - Good!, Heartrate - Stable. So he passed! They told me to come back if there are any changes in fetal movement or if I sense something is not right. Otherwise he's good for the next week.
I finally walk in the door, home just EIGHT hours after I left! My "quick" NST took all freaking day...
