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
