    Default Help! What excuse can I use for blood test?

    Hey everyone! *waves*

    I am getting my early preg bloods done tomorrow. We are keeping it on the low down until at least 8 weeks. I have some real annoying people at work that so "you must be pregnant!" all the time when I have a belly ache or if I even just yawn! (baby fever in office).

    So what can I say I got blood taken for tomorrow? I don't know if I will be able to get away with a long sleeved shirt plus I am seeing ppl from work on Sat so it might be sus....

    We aren't planning any travel so I can use that for an excuse.

    Thanks!

    Iron levels? OR maybe say you're pregnant with sarcasm in your voice... Only if you're a good actor

    Thanks - I think I am still in shock! Have gas/indigestion pain right now at work. If this is just the beginning I am going to be in serious trouble!

    I might go with the iron test. I just now they are all going to be like "oooooh, you are pregnant!". It is getting pretty old. They don't even know we have been trying! It is getting a bit old.

    Can you get bloods done for general allergy testing?

    general check up? iron, thyroid etc.

    I had an early ultrasound my immediate boss didn't twig could be for pregnancy with my first as I said it was for 'abdominal complaints' I'd been really sick and lost a bunch more weight than most but everyone else jumped on it though.as pregnancy scan

    I had my pregnancy bloods done during my work lunch break, and I just took off the bandaid, so nobody noticed anything.
