Non stress tests...HELP!!! - September 21

Hi ladies...just two more days and I get to join this board. I posted this question a last week but I didnt get any responses so I decided to post again. I was just wondering if anyone had to have non-stress tests (NSTs) at the begining of the third trimester. If so why did you have to have them? How long did you have to have them and what was the outcome? The reason I ask is becasue I am 27 weeks 5 days and my doctor started me on NSTs yesterday. I will go two days a week from now until the end of the pregnancy. The reason I am going is because I am not feeling any fetal movement. When I went yesterday I was hooked up to the Doppler and the machine that checks for contractions. The machine showed that I was having a Braxton Hick's Contraction but when the nurse asked I could not feel a thing. The baby's heartrate was fine. They did two ultrasounds, the first one to look at movement and later came back to do a second to check the amniotic fluid levels. According to the doctor everything looks fine and the baby is moving at the rate she is supposed to, for some reason I just can't feel it. I am trying not to freak out but as a paranoid first-timer of course I am. Just wondering if anyone has or has had a silmillar experience. I would love all the info I can get. I can't seem to find much about it on the internet.
