CTG (TOCO) readings


Does anyone know what the tocography reading would be on a CTG machine if you were having Braxton Hicks, and then what would the reading be for true uterine contractions...?

Thanks

i was on the CTG machine for a few days last week, and mine started at 10 toco and reached 36, she said that was normal for 29 weeks.

they say that anything over 25% is a true contraction. When they put me on the monitor before they sent me to labour suite my contractions were reading 85%.
HTH

Lou - thats normal for the base line isn't it...... that would have been picking up uterine movements from your breathing, general movements and babies movements, but there were would not have been any uterine contractions if it were at those levels....??? is that right...?

no the babies HB was from 135 - 165 the 150 was deffo the uterine contractions. The MW even asked if i could feel anything. When i said brax hix she laughed and couldn't believe i wasn't in any pain. They stared off every 7 mins, then progressed to every 5 mins.
