Biophysical Profile and Non-Stress Test

Posted Sep 01 2010 1:37pm
This morning Jay took me to the hospital for 41 week post date testing also known as a biophysical profile. A biophysical profile is performed for post-term pregnancies to determine if the baby is still healthy and consists of an ultrasound and a fetal non-stress test .

Teagan scored an 8 out of 8 on the ultrasound and a 2 out of 2 on the non-stress test. Basically this means, with a perfect score of 10, I do not need to be induced immediately. If I happen to still be pregnant on Sunday, we need to report back to the hospital to repeat the test.

The ultrasound tech estimated that she weighs 9 pounds 2 ounces plus or minus 1 pound and when the midwife called she warned me that I have a good amount of amniotic fluid remaining. She also said be prepared for a big splash if my water should break.
