Question about blood tests for the 1st trimester
Do I need to fast before giving blood? It's been almost 2 years since I had my Son so I forgot.
Ask your OB. I only have to fast for the diabetes draw at 20 weeks. And even that is under debate as to it's safety.
As I remember you can eat and drink normally before both the blood test and the ultrasound exam but I would check with your OB
The only ones I've had to fast for were the glucose test. They'll tell you beforehand if you need to.
