Primary Outcome Measures:
  • fetal movements as perceived by the mother [ Time Frame: one hour ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Effect of glucose versus saline infusion on the perception of fetal movements. the mother will count fetal movements that she feels one hour following saline/glucose infusion and report to the obstetrician in charge. The research aims to clarify whether glucose increases fetal movements.
