Oooh...that's tricky... I'd probably go with 76801 and 76817, since the intent of the US was to assess a suspected pregnancy, and the focus was on the maternal anatomy relevant to a pregnancy. I wouldn't use a non-obstetrical code on this paticular visit - Maybe if she has another US in the future after the second blood test indicates that she's not pregnant. I'd like to know how an OBGYN coder would code this, as well - I'd think it would be treated similar to a suspected ectopic pregnancy, but I'm just guessing and could be completely wrong about that...
