Re : With future pregnancies ...

this may be a stupid question, but do the recurrence rates change if you do/dont have any of the underlying problems? you know the ones the test for after delivery.

Re : Non-responsive NST - Update

at the start of each of my NSTs the nurse always gave me a juice box. they claimed it would help spur activity, it seemed to help. you could try that.
