In brief: Many things

The usual prenatal blood tests may include: blood type with antibody screen, rubella status, hepatitis screen, HIV status, thyroid function test, hemoglobin level, syphillis serology, tetra test (or quad or penta test) for genetic anomaly risk assessment, and gestational diabetes screen.
Dedending on these test results and other medical conditions, more tests may well be indicated.
