I'm starting to have serious doubts about the practice that I go to. I went to the hospital yesterday to get my bloodwork done prior to my 12 week visit at the office. (I'm 11 wks right now) They hospital gave me a gallon jug and a specimen collector and told me that I had to have my 24 hour urine sample before they could do the rest of my tests.
WTH! I did a 24 hour sample with my last pregnancy - - at 32 weeks!! It tests kidneys and for preeclampsia, right? Why are they testing that at 11 weeks!? I'm perfectly healthy. I plan on calling the office later today to see if it was an accident or what is going on. I just thought I'd check to see if this is the new norm.This seems really weird to me.
*Edit* I knew it. My office has a nasty history of fat-shaming. They are ordering the test because my BMI is above average. Rediculous. I told the nurse that I refuse to do the test with no other symptoms. I'm waiting for a call back from one of the doctors.
