What are the Tests Done in Early Pregnancy?

– Complete Blood Count (CBC) with Differential/Platelet — Determines the number of various kinds of cells in your blood to screen for anemia, infection, and blood sugar levels.
– -clotting ability
– Urinalysis and Urine Culture – Used to detect urinary tract illness, infection, glucose (high levels may indicate diabetes), and protein.
– Hepatitis B – Pregnant women infected with the Hepatitis B virus (which affects the liver) might spread the infection to their unborn children.
– Rubella (German Measles) – If a woman is infected during pregnancy, it might cause birth abnormalities. Your blood is examined to check whether you've ever had rubella or if you've been immunized against it.
– HIV – HIV-infected pregnant women may be given medicine and take other precautions to lessen the risk of transferring the infection to their newborns.
– Varicella Zoster V Antibodies (Chicken Pox) – This test determines whether or not a woman is immune to varicella (chicken pox). Blood Typing – This test determines your blood type and Rh factor (a protein on the surface of red blood cells). The blood types are A, B, AB, or O, and the Rh factor may be positive or negative. When a mom is Rh negative and her infant is Rh positive, complications might arise.
– Antibody Screening — If you are Rh-negative, your immune system may produce an antibody that binds to the Rh-positive antigens on your fetus' red blood cells and destroys them. These antibodies are detected using an antibody screen. Although the first Rh-positive infant is unlikely to develop unwell, antibodies created during the first pregnancy will impact subsequent Rh-positive newborns.
– Pregnant women are examined for syphilis (through a test called rapid plasma reagin, or RPR) and chlamydia early in pregnancy since these STDs may be transferred to their newborns and cause additional difficulties.
– Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) – Because thyroid issues are linked to pregnancy concerns, women are tested to check that their
