...to complete my NST today.
I got to the hospital around 10 o'clock this morning for my non-stress test. Both babies were quite active for the first 10 minutes or so, then Baby A must have fallen asleep. After about an hour on the monitor, the nurse came in and said that they wanted some more movement out of Baby A.
So, they unhooked Baby B's monitor, and I sat for another 20 minutes.
Still not much movement from Baby A. The next time the nurse came in, she brought along the "shocker", it's an instrument that vibrates and emits a loud buzz sound. She buzzed my sweet little girl a couple of times and then let us rest again. I can't even imagine how annoyed she was at that!
Finally, at 1 o'clock, I was unhooked and free to go.
I'm not sure how I feel about it. Baby A is usually my busy baby, I worry about not feeling Baby B more often.
Should I be worried? Anyone else have NST's take hours to complete?
