What about fasting for a blood test during pregnancy?

Data: 2019-12-04

There are several blood tests you may need if you’re pregnant. These are designed to assess any potential health concerns that you or your baby might experience during pregnancy or after you give birth. Some of these tests will require you to fast beforehand. Your doctor will advise you how to prepare for each test.

Fasting is usually safe if you’re pregnant, provided you’re in good health and aren’t having a high-risk pregnancy. For your overall comfort, your doctor may advise you to drink extra water or to remain indoors, especially if the weather is very hot or humid.
Fasting may increase heartburn in some pregnant women. If you experience uncomfortable or concerning symptoms of any kind while you’re waiting to have your blood drawn, let your doctor know immediately.

If you’re seeing a doctor other than your obstetrician-gynecologist, make sure they are made aware of your pregnancy before your blood test.
