when does your care provider start doing NST's or ultrasounds? Just curious.

 

I'll be 41 weeks tomorrow, but my m/w doesn't think I should schedule my biophysical profile until Friday, when I'll be 41+3.

 

How about you?

My last midwife scheduled one for 41w (I gave birth at 40w6d).

This midwife starts at 40weeks, but she also uses that old method of calculating due dates (adding 9 months + 1 week to LMP) which puts me due 3 days later than I know I am based on ovulation and ridiculously accurate charting.

 

So I had my first NST on Saturday at 40w4d and have another NST and my first post date US at 41w1d (this wed).  She does them every 4 days here on out.

 

She was going to schedule a biophysical profile for the baby for today but said the baby was just so active she's not really worried (the baby moved and kicked and fought the entire NST so it took a while for them to get a baseline, it was as if the baby didn't like the monitors on my belly...you would just see these feet kicking them, LOL).

My midwife has to do a OB consult at 41+3 but the biophysical profile begins at 40+4 and then it will be every 3 days after 41 weeks.

I'm due on Wednesday, saw the midwife today. They do NST & BPP @ 41w so I believe they were trying to schedule it for next Wednesday. I'm hoping to be able to cancel that appointment :)

This midwife doesn't do them until after I hit 43 weeks, of course that depends on the comfort of the mother. I went to 42 weeks with #1 and agreed to do one NST (I was seeing military doctors). I went to one day shy of 43 weeks during my third with this current midwife and we didn't do anything. We were talking about having one done and then I went into labour. I did start seeing her twice a week when I hit 42 weeks.

My last midwife did the BPP closer to 41 weeks (mine with DD was at 41+2). My current midwife likes to schedule them closer to 42, like at 41+4 or 41+5. I'll be 41+3 on Friday, so that's when I'm going to have one.
