Pregnancy Stress Test
42 week second pregnancy stress test would I get induce after the test? Or would they want me to go back for another one?
Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern. Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more
No: Non-stress tests evaluate the baby's heartbeat. They are ordered if there is a medical complication with the pregnancy such as diabetes or pre-eclampsia or if your pregnancy goes past your due date. They are also done if you aren't feeling the baby move for more than an hour or two. If you have an uncomplicated pregnancy you will likely not need a non-stress test. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Will a nuclear stress test make me radioactive? I’m having a nuclear stress test, and i need to know if it’s safe for me to babysit my grandkids after it? Will i be radioactive? Could i be dangerous to the kids?
You : You will be sufficiently radioactive to set off alarms at airports, ferry terminals, and border crossings. The sensitivity of these devices is high on purpose. However, the amount of radiation a patient emits after a cardiac nuclear scan is not considered dangerous to others. Notice that the technologists who perform these tests do not wear lead or other radiation protection and they are around "radioactive" patients every day. For the sake of completeness, however, i will add that pregnant women should not undergo this test and anyone who thinks they might be pregnant should have a pregnancy test before having any kind of radionuclide scan. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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.
