In brief: Depends on risks.

First trimester blood work includes: blood count, blood type, exposure to hiv, syphilis, hepatitis b, immunity to rubella, pap smear and cultures for gc & chlamydia in the second trimester, screening for anemia and gestational diabetes.
In the third trimester, a second screen for hiv, syphilis and a vaginal culture for group b strep. Additional testing may be offered depending on risk factors.
