Pregnancy laboratory tests - First trimester

The gestational age for expectant mothers is about 280 days, which is divided into three time intervals of three months each, also known as trimesters. As the pregnancy happens, the expectant mother’s breathing, blood circulation, heart rate, sugar metabolism, and hormone balance change. The body adapts to the new life situation and prepares to feed the foetus properly in addition to the mother. The primary goal of the first trimester laboratory test is to monitor the health of the expectant mother.

Pregnancy laboratory tests - First trimester basic laboratory package

Items tested in the first trimester basic laboratory package:

Blood count

A blood count is a complex test used to determine the relative and absolute number, type, size, shape, and other physical characteristics of the formed elements (red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets) present in the blood.

Creatinine (with eGFR)

The purpose of determining creatinine levels is to assess the normal functioning of the kidneys.

Bilirubin

Laboratory testing may indicate that the patient has some form of liver disease. The amount of bilirubin in the blood is measured.

GOT

The test is used to show the extent of liver damage.

GPT

The test mainly shows the extent of liver damage, but other diseases may be revealed, be it disorders of the pancreas, the myocardium or musculoskeletal system.

TSH

To screen for thyroid diseases.

T. urine with sediment

Screening for metabolic and renal disorders.

Urea (Carbamide)

The purpose of the test is to assess the normal functioning of the kidneys.

Blood type with antibody screening

Blood type determination is especially important because the blood type of the foetus may be different from that of the expectant mother, so the body of the pregnant woman can identify as a foreigner and produce antibodies as a defence. These antibodies can pose a serious threat to the health of the foetus.
