  • I think I started with NSTs at 28 weeks. I had them every week until the end of the pg. This was standard with the practice I went to regardless if it was 1 baby or more. With twins, you will be hooked up with a few, as Celia wrote, belt like thingies. They can monitor heartbeats and contractions. There is no set time length for the procedure. Some women are out of there in 20 minutes. My NSTs lasted an hour til I figured out the trick to get me out sooner. I will share the trick with you. They will not let you go until they see movement. My guys always seemed to be asleep when I went for these morning tests. (By the way, they can zap you to get them going) I never felt much during the pg. This is because they were hanging out at the back of uterus and it was cramped in there. Before you go for the test, drink some coffee and have a couple of cookies. The sugar and caffeine will wake them up.
