Softening of the urterus that occurs about six weeks of pregnancy

What are Nonreassuring Patterns of FHR?
Tachycardia, Bradycardia, Decreased or absent variability, Late or Varible decelerations, Prolong decleration, and hyper uterine activity
A nonreassuring pattern that reflects imparied placental exchanges or uteroplacental insufficiency
Late Deceleration -Need to improve placental blood flow and fetal oxygenation
Define Variable deceleration
-Restriction of flow the the umbilical cord (cord compression)
