Do you partake in? We did the 20 week u/s and the Group B Strep test. That was it.

I checked my protein every appointment, weight.

I had basic bloodwork done.

20 week U/S

and then a 35 week U/S because I started bleeding out of nowhere and ended up in the ER. Bebe was just fine though.

I didn't do the Group B and I opted out of the GD test as well.

We did an ultrasound at 18.5 weeks to find out the sex but they didn't do any measurements or anything, just found out the sex and that was it. I think we are planning on doing the Group B test and I've had some basic blood work done but I think that is all we are going to do.

I had some basic bloodwork at 12 weeks as well, and I forgot about the pee tests at every visit too.

So far I've had:
- The normal 12 week blood work
- 15 week u/s for dating
- monthly urine test with the strips
- I am refusing the GD test
- unsure about the GBS test right now.

I had:
-HCG and progesterone levels taken right after BFP
-an u/s at 6 weeks due to fertility meds to be certain I was pregnant and everything was implanted where it should be
-the basic bloodwork done at 14 weeks (when I started seeing the MWs)
-u/s done at 21 weeks due to loosing of mucus plug, had to have my cervix measured to make sure I didn't need a cerclage
-u/s done at 41 weeks when I was overdue to check on fluid levels and baby
-pee checked by myself at each appt.
-had my blood sugar level tested (their verison of the GD test without the drink, etc )
-Had the GBS test, wanted to opt, should have
-bloodwork done again every 2-3 months to check my hemoglobin levels for anemia and for anitbodies as am Rh negative
