Step 3: Get Any Prenatal Tests Deemed Necessary by You Throughout Your Pregnancy
These tests can include: pap smear, blood work, glucose tolerance, ultrasound, etc. You know your body and your baby better than anyone else. If you feel you need to get something tested, do it. If you're not comfortable with a test, don't do it. Above all, research any tests you are considering and determine if the benefits outweigh the risks (if any).
If you are UP'ing, some of these tests may not be available to you as it depends on your insurance and location. You may want to consult with a medical professional or insurance to see which are available to you.
