Timeline: Week 10
I am booked for the integrated screening for Down syndrome next week. At the time of booking, the lady told me to go in a week prior for a blood draw, so that the results will be ready at the ultrasound appointment. This morning, I walked-in to get my blood draw.
As a pregnant women, you really cannot be too afraid of needles and blood. There is no escaping being poked at regular intervals throughout the process. Personally, I am not too concerned about the blood draw. I am just curious as to how many vials of blood would have been drawn from me by the time the baby pops out.
Current blood vial count: 11
