    Default 12 week screening blood test

    I feel like an absolute tool for not knowing this before I had it done but can anyone explain to me the ins and outs of the 12 week screening blood test and how it works with the scan. I was surprised to have my weight taken and asked about diabetes and she asked whether I had eaten this morning, and something else I don't remember, so I'm thinking the testing is more complicated than I thought.

    I checked what she asked for and it was the Papp (whatsamacallit) and the HCG but that was all she had listed.

    Can someone explain to me how it all works?
