Letter from my Doctor

I got a letter in the mail from my doctor today. It says that I have to go to the lab to get additional tests done(I already had the normal tests you get when you first find out you are pregnant). The test that is written says "UN/CFS."
Anyone know what test this is??

  • I think that is your blood glucose test to make sure you don't have gestational diabetes. I don't know why they would send it to you instead of tell you on the phone or at an appointment that seems impersonal. I don't know for sure, and you shouldn't take a test you don't know or understand so go ahead and call and ask, I might consider getting a more personal doctor.

  • I'm not sure but CFS can stand for cerebral spinal fluid - which can be used to test for neurological disorders

  • CFS is usually Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. That doesn't make sense.

    Sorry you have to wait til the morning to call!

  • I did a search on line and a blood glucose test came up first in the answers so I am sure that the S is sugar but it won't hurt to ask.
