Pap Smear testing...

I have heard so many different things. I do plan on asking my OB at my next visit BUT does the routine pregnancy Pap Smear test for STD's and whatnot?? Or do you have to ask them to? I already had the pap but never asked the Dr. details.

I've also heard that when they draw blood, they test of diseases, (HIV etc..) is that normally routine as well, or do you have to ask??

When pregnant with DS they never asked, they just did the pap the first visit, and a visit or two later they drew blood, never knew what it was for though...

Just wondering if these are all routine. I would like to be checked for STD's to verify being in the clear since I haven't been checked in a long time, I didn't think to ask any of this when pregnant with DS. I have overwhelming fears of diseases/cancer of any sort, I think it's because cancer has been running through the family, I always want to be sure I'm healthy!
