Re: what procedures/tests do you consent to?

My OB did a urine dip at each appt, checked heartbeat, fundal height. I had 3 sonograms at 8 weeks, 20 weeks, and 32 weeks. I had some early bleeding hence the 8 week sonogram, and one of his kidneys measured large at 20 weeks so they rechecked it at 32 to make sure it was normal. I also did the GD test, and I had to have my blood drawn every 4 weeks to check my thyroid levels. I cinsent to most tests bc I trust my OB's judgement. We declined all genetic tests. The results of those wouldn't have changed anything we did so we didnt want any undue stress. Just our preference.
