    Regarding anemia, the public system tests you on your 1st visit. I was 8 weeks, and I found out that I have a slight case of anemia. Private doctors don't test you for anemia until later on....

    When I was 13weeks, my dr.(private) did the antenatal test for me, which included random glucose, ABO/Rh, CBC (haemoglobin, etc), Hep B Ag/Ab, Rubella, VDRL, CMV Ab. my phone report was, everything alright but glucose (which is 8.0). so, I was suggested to do the glucose tolerance test (OGTT). That glucose drink was better than what I've been told.

    So, I think if you are 24 weeks already, you must have some blood test done already.. and your dr. should know everything but just not discussed with you about the results.

    I only had a blood test before I became pregnant, nothing afterwards except the testing of pregnancy hormone levels and the screenings.

    I asked my doctor and she suggested I could get the GTT test when I go in for my next check up, which will be during my 29th week.

    Is testing during the 29th week okay, or will that be too late?
