I am scheduled starting next week to have one weekly along with NST's twice a week
I dont know but my water broke early and have been hospitalized for a month now. I get bpp ultrasound twice a week! ! Maybe its for precautions reasons
What are you ladies getting it for? I'm a little worried I'm scheduled for 1 weekly
I gte mine done because my water broke at 26 weeks and the monitor the baby breathing and check the amniotic fluid
Im high hisk ive been having bbp and us for past month.
I have to get mine cuase of previous pregnacy issues..still born..miscarriage..big babies ccections etc...it makes me feel better its more reasurring..the only bad thing is I have to drive over an hour to get there but my peace of minds worth it..the bbp checks fluid placenta and a couple other things..
I go weekly because my baby is measuring small...he's less then 10 percentile but he's fine...they want to do it to make sure he is healthy, gaining weight, and not declining. He scored an 8/8 today which is perfect. I'm 32 weeks...
A BPP is an ultrasound to evaluate fetal well-being. Four aspects checked...."breathing", movement, tone, and amniotic fluid index. Each gets 2 points and must be seen within 30 minutes. Many reasons to do a BPP. To many to list. Done in the 3rd trimester and usually 1x per week.
Thanks ladies.. My baby is measuring small also and I'm high risk... What is the "perfect" score to get? 8/8?
Yes, 8/8. Two points for each of the 4 aspects evaluated. 10/10 if a nonstress test is also done.
I go twice a week because I'm high risk for blood clotting disorders. Its kind of nice to be able to keep an eye on him that much! I don't mind at all.
