Answer

Antepartum testing is generally indicated during expectant management of patients with preeclampsia without severe features. However, there is little consensus regarding the types of tests to be used and the frequency of testing. Most clinicians offer a nonstress test (NST) and a biophysical profile (BPP) at the time of the diagnosis and usually twice per week until delivery. [2, 1]
