  • No the opposite.
    Since it's rare to have it, rare to do it, it's normal to 'not consent.'
    It's the law to offer, I believe--- and to explain why a woman might want/not want it...
    But since many care providers/practices don't like it/do it, not a very big deal at all!

  • No. With my second pregnancy he told me to worry about doing it, because he knew I wouldn't be able to keep that drink down. I had severe hyperimisis.

  • you didnt say you refused it though, so did they just say something bc you failed or thought you might?

  • I have refused it in the past and my midwife was cool with it. But I had one OB in California that was down right rude about it and stated it was state law to have ALL testing done.

  • Why would you refuse a GD test? Really, why? I don't get it.
