    I am 35 weeks pregnant, and I have been said to be at high risk of complications because I have gestational diabetes and take insulin.

    My doctor now wants me to have a “biophysical profile.”
    What is this, and why is it done? Is it routinely done, or is this unusual? What other types of testing are done at this stage of pregnancy?
