Tests done before birth to monitor the pregnancy and health of the fetus. Examples are ultrasonography, amniocentisis, and routine blood work. Many of these tests are screening tests that are designed to identify women at higher than normal risk of having a complicated pregnancy. Although they may give abnormal test results, it does not mean that there is something wrong with your pregnancy or fetus. It only means you have increased risk and additional definitive tests are needed.
