Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your pregnancy.
It is recommended to have the antenatal blood tests carried out during pregnancy. The blood tests include: finding out your blood group (in the unlikely instance that you need a blood transfusion), checking your Rhesus factor (this is important), checking your iron levels (anemia is common in pregnancy), checking you are immune to Rubella and seeing if you are a carrier of the hepatitis B virus. These are generally first tested at your first antenatal appointment. I would get in contact with your midwife again and ask when the blood tests can be performed.
I wish you a happy, healthy pregnancy.
