I’ve seen a few threads about how much people paid/expect to pay out of pocket for their pregnancies, but I’m curious about labwork specifically. I received a cost estimate from my doctor at my first appointment, but it didn’t include labwork or ultrasounds. I just got the bill from that appointment, where they took 5 vials of blood and ran lots of tests. My insurance covered all or the majority of most of those tests, making my cost $135 instead of $640, but a few things weren’t covered at all.
For those of you further along, did you continue to have blood drawn at every appointment? Was it as much? Did your lab bills go down after your first one? I’m just trying to wrap my head around how much we are looking at spending for labwork, and whether we have several $100+ lab bills in our future.
