First Bloodwork

I have my first bloodwork in a few hours.

Did anyone have to fast for theirs?   

Re: First Bloodwork

  • The most common tests they would have you fast for would be a blood glucose, lipid panel or for STD's.  I am pretty sure that STD is a standard test for all pregnant women.  HTH

  • No fasting is needed for the first tests. I would drink some OJ because they take a lot of blood...well they did for me last time with my DS.

  • You definitely do not need to fast unless your doctor specifically directed you to do so.  Hope everything goes well for you today! GL.

  • I don't have anything to add to previous posters, I just wanted to say Good luck and lots of sticky baby dust to you!!
  • You don't need to fast.  I think they just tell you that to be evil.  I have to drink TONS of water to get my veins to plump up.  I'm a horrible stick.
