Funchu I hope its your turn soon. Blood tests are a nightmare by the time River arrived my left arm vein had collapsed

So should I speak to my FS about organising bloods or just go to my GP?
Maybe call your FS and ask them? My gp never did a blood test. He looked at my tests, agreed I was pregnant, and referred me to my ob
Gp did mine but I hadn't gone to a fs yet.
Hi Teeja!! Great news
After we fell with our first I didn't know what to do and just went through my gp, didn't have bloods done til 11 weeks. I can't remember when I got back to fs but they didn't seem phased about me getting bloods done or not.
After our last few bubs (once again through same fs) they wanted bloods done straight away and wanted to monitor p4 and hcg through first part of pregnancy to make sure they wouldn't be a problem. They also wanted to do a 7 week scan and will probably do our morph if we get there.
Just depends on how carefully they want to monitor you. Give them a buzz and check. They can bulk bill the bloods too - I forgot to ask until the second half of the year after already spending close on $1K!
All the best hon
