I am 12 weeks and have already been to the obgyn twice. The only test I have taken is a pee test. No blood test. Is this common procedure?

Your doctor should have taken a blood test. Mine took 10 vials (around 1/2 a pint) and checked for lots of things including thryoid levels, HIV (routine - I am not at risk) and plenty of other things. I am seeing him in two weeks and will get a list of exactly what they tested and the results. You should say something to your doctor. Lots can be found out early and most things can be treated!

Def. should have been more!! You can do the pee test yourself!

I am only 5 1/2 weeks and went to the dr. a couple of days ago. I was surprised that they did not do another pregnancy test, but they told me that if I tested all those times positive at home, then I would test positive in their office as well. So, they went on to take 6 vials of blood for pregnancy and all those other disorders that they check for. I would say that they DEFINITELYneeded to take your blood.
