Non Stress Test Anyone Have One

I went to my weekly appointment on the 10th, I am a little less than 40 wks. My doctor told me that I had low blood pressure, and then sent me to have blood work done. I went back to the doctors today and he still said that my blood pressure was low, but not as low. He wants me back on the 15th, and they're going to do a nst (non stess test). I have no idea what that is or why I have to have one. Did anyone else have a test like this or am I just abnormal?

A non stress test is where they have you drink a sugary fluid(choc or straw drink usually) and then put a belt around your belly...everytime the baby kicks you are to push a b___ton...nothing to it and no pain involved...actually everyone gets one (or at least I thought) during the last few weeks of pregnancy...I always have..good luck

I am having non stress test every week until I go into labor. I am 37 weeks pg. My dr told me because I have High Blood Pressue we need to have the test done. Basically all they are checking to see is fetal movements and when the baby moves you press a b___ton if the baby's heart rate increases when he/she moves then everything is ok.
