Is it common to request blood test chain of custody proof before pleading

Has anyone witnessed 346.65(2)(bm) used in sentencing of a 2nd offense OWI.
Trying hard to fulfill all the requirements of 346.65(2)(bm) prior to plea and sentencing but am not very optimistic that all the proactive effort will pay off.

I have first court date (not intake) very soon. I have not seen all of the evidence against me yet nor have I been advised of the potential penalties. Will I have to enter a final plea at the upcoming court date. Its is labeled as "Hearing". Nothing else. Very confusing.

Should I have independent lab re test Blood for BAC?
Breathalyzer = 0.187. Blood test = 0.26. That seems like big statistical difference. How much does it cost to have State send blood samples to independent lab for testing?
