You do blood work at every appt?? Why? That sucks! I only had it at the first appt for all my pregnancies and again at 12 weeks for 1st trimester screen and then at 28 weeks for GD. I also had one at 40 weeks last time for pre-e but def not every time!

But why? What are the looking for? Is it a blood draw or a finger stick?

That is so weird. Never heard of that before. I personally wouldn't do it and would definitely want to know WHY they find it necessary considering that is not common practice at all!

awh i am sure i can handle a tat but the ppl in the lab at my dr's office want to stick my right arm even though its 100percent easier with left arm. -if i stretch my arms, you could make a road map outta my left arm, but my right well, youre better finding a needle in a hay stack- and they push way to hard and wiggle needle. :(:( this is number 3 but the only part i remember from previous pregnancies is the last few wks and baby's big day.
