Is there any (or all) prenatal tests that you are not going to get done?

I won't be doing any other than the 20 week ultrasound. I skipped it all with my pregnancy with Kate as well. For my other two births, the only test I got done was the GD testing.

Oh I almost forgot, I will do the GBS test but if its positive, I wouldn't automatically have the antibiotics.

I did the 20wk ultrasound and reluctantly did the GBS testing, next time I'll only get the ultrasound.

The only thing I am having done is the initial pregnancy panel and that is just for my midwives use.

Since being with my midwife, the only thing I've done is the ultrasound. Not sure about the GBS yet.

I did the first blood testing, 15 week ultrasound and will do the GBS test. I need to talk to my midwives to see what my options are for GBS if I do test positive... I've never tested positive before though.

I do the 20 weeks sono, the GBS testing and my midwife does a random blood sugar check around 27 weeks but not a full GD screen so I do that.

I had an u/s at 5weeks due to fertility meds with the RE. The initial basic blood work at 14w when I started seeing the MW and again every 3 months due to Rh- to check for antibodies, an U/S at 21weeks due to lost mucus plug and one at 41weeks for being post due. A basic blood sugar test at 28weeks, I believe and had the GBS swap done at 34 weeks I believe.

Initial blood work, 20 week u/s, GBS testing and my urine is always checked. I won't do the GD or any of the genetics testing done on baby.

My midwife doesn't do any testing unless you request it. So far I did get my levels checked through my PCD because I was cramping for a week. My levels were really high.

we won't do any genetic testing, and she doesn't do the GD test either. I bet she doesn't do the GS test either.

we will do an u/s after 20 weeks, she doesn't recommend any but leaves the choice up to you.
