has anyone had this done before?

I just come back from my doctor appt and he want me to come back in 4 weeks (when i am 17 weeks preg) to get a Triple Scan Blood Test. I know what he is testing for, i just want to know where he is going to get the blood from. I know that this may sound strange or whatever, I just want to know if he is going to take the blood from my arm or from the baby?!? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

He will get the blood from your arm. No need to worry!

From your arm, painless and noninvasive.
