Gross fetal body movements and fetal heart rate were studied serially during the last trimester of pregnancy by real-time ultrasound in 11 healthy women during the inhalation of 4% carbon dioxide in air. The authors observed that induction of maternal hypercapnia during the last 10 weeks of pregnancy had no effect on the percentage of time of gross fetal body movements or on fetal heart rate accelerations.
