i have a lot of other risk factors and only have to have nst's once a week.
I agree with the other posters that 2X a week, plus a visit to the high risk specialist does sound excessive.
On the other hand, I had a similar experience with my first baby. She just was kind of "lazy" if you will :) and wasn't doing well in there...I also had a low amnio fluid level. (No abnormal risks for anything and I was 34 at the time.) I think I only went 1x a week, but maybe it was twice...it was 5 1/2 years ago.
At 36 weeks she just wasn't doing much to show she was doing better in than out so a c-section (she was breech) was scheduled for 38.5 weeks.
Funny thing...today, at age 5, she is my total laid-back child. She's slower than a slug on a rug and just takes her good ole time doing what she wants. She loves ballet and recently begged to sign up for soccer...oh my! I don't think she really understands what she's in for...she barely rides her bike. Thank goodness she's not an eater, or I might have a chunky kid on my hands. Instead she's a skinny minnie, but just marches to her own beat! LOL
