Baby monitoring: A non-stress test is a way of checking on the baby. We listen to and record the fetal heart for 20-30 minutes. We are looking at the baseline heart rate and how the heart rate goes up or down. We are looking at this to see if the baby is getting enough oxygen or if there are other problems with how the baby is doing.

NST: They look for the contractions of uterus and its relation to heartbeat of the kid.

Dont be too serious: Many couples stop enjoying sex when they are trying to get pregnant. They lose the intimacy and "medicalize" the act. There is nothing sexy about timing intercourse around ovulation calendars and body temperature charts. Creating a baby together is amazing experience. Don't over think it. Just relax and have fun.
