3. A 19-year-old woman is admitted to the obstetrics ward for potential labor. She reports that she is at 32-weeks gestation by her last menstrual period. About 2 hours ago, she began having dull low back pain and menstrual-like cramps. She is now experiencing regular contractions every 2 minutes. After obtaining a history, the most immediate course of action you should take is to

a) Administer magnesium sulfate

b) Palpate the abdomen to determine the frequency of contractions

c) Perform a fetal non-stress test

d) Perform a pelvic examination to evaluate the cervix

e) Perform ultrasonography of the pelvis to confirm pregnancy dating






Agree with D.

When would C be indicated?


C----decreased fetal movement
