    Hi there,
    Generally you will get your haemoglobin checked a few times throughout your pregnancy. Depending on who your care provider is you may also have a gestational diabetes screen.
    If you are having a normal pregnancy wiht no problems that should be about it!

    Most girls I know have the GCT at around 26-28 weeks, I'm having mine on thursday and having my haemoglobin levels checked etc too.

    With DD i had tests at 6 weeks, 18 weeks, 28 weeks and 32 weeks.

    First one was initial PG tests, 2nd was just a level check and the last 2 were GD tests.

    I hate BT.....but now im used to needles.... im ready for round 2!! haha

    I had a test to test a whole bunch of things at 10 weeks - haemoglobin, my blood type, sugar, any diseases, rubella immunity and all those things were done with that trst.

    Then, I had another blood test for testing glucose and haemoglobin at 28 weeks. This was the glucose challenge test. My hospital does it for everyone, but i know that not all hospitals/obs do it as some of the ladies in my bellybuddies group didnt have it.

    IF either of my blood tests were to show probs or potential issues, then I would have needed more, but the results were ok, so i havent needed more.
