Blood and TB test in same day while pregnant

I am 4 months pregnant and my new job is requiring that I get a TB test done. I also have to get blood work done today. Is it safe to do these both in the same day while pregnant? Also, in what order should these be done?

Welcome to Healthboards! We hope you'll stay and look around... find your birth month thread and join in!

First off, blood tests just means getting blood drawn from your arm. No big deal.

The TB test, though, I would call your OB about, just to make sure it's ok. Your doctor may want you to forgo testing unless you are working in a high risk setting (where getting TB would be worse than any potential side effects from the testing itself).

There is a lot of info out there on the web if you do a search for it. I would specifically look to the CDC's and FDA's recommendations.

Good luck!
