Alright, this is going to be a hormonal crazy post because of the pregnancy hormones, but let me try to pose this question in a normal way.
Set up: I consented to 9 different blood tests useful in early pregnancy
-quantitative hCG, to date the pregnany
-genetic tests for : cystic fibrosis, trisomy 21 and 18 and spina bifida
-HIV and Hep B (easier to just do them in case of needle stick injury in the future)
-some basic blood work (CBC and BMP)
-Blood type test
Alright, so only about half the results were in, but I asked for a printout of those that were ready.
My q-HCG puts me exactly where I thought I was in the pregnancy (I charted and used OPKs).
My other tests have values similar those I got at the ER when I went 2 months ago.
BUT, my blood test came out wrong. Like… every single part of it was wrong. The nursing station said I could request from the nurse practitioner to retake that test. I also asked at the lab and they let me call the processing lab who did the tests. They confirmed my “wrong” bloodtype.
If this were you, would you retake
1. nothing–I already know my bloodtype
2. everything–if they mixed up one, they may all be mixed up
3. just the blood type test.
The nursing station said it was up to me, and I am leaning toward just taking them ALL again (if the nurse practitioner OKs it)
