This is my first and I didn't opt out, only because they were saying baby was measuring pretty big and thought that could be a cause. Had his size not been an issue, I would have asked to opt out. I ended up passing it.
I didn't think they could tell you no! I don't see it as a life or death matter, especially if you feel fine, baby is doing fine, and you haven't had any issues. I, however, am not a doctor.
Well they test because it's really easy for a pregnant woman to get it. That can cause complications and if they don't know you have it then they arn't prepared for the complications it's so that they can know all the possible complications that can arise. Not just with you but with baby as well. At least that's what my doc said. I've done the test three times now.
It's very important to do. Gestational Diabetes is serious and if you don't know you have it, the baby could get really big and you both could get really sick. I had gestational diabetes 2 times and will probably have it again. It does not matter how healthy you are and you do not have to be overweight. Anyone can get it so taking is test is a must in my opinion. Better to be safe than sorry.
I was unable to complete the test. I couldn't keep the drink down. Now they are just going to have me eat normally, and then have me come in for a regular blood test.
no i never did. i think it is a necessary test just to be on the safe side. god forbid you have it and not know about it. then it can endanger you and the child.
Bla mine is next appointment :/
Couldn't opt out. I've had it with my past two pregnancies, and pretty sure it is back again with this one. I am only 22 weeks, but I can tell when my sugar is high or low. I'll be glad to get throught this pregnancy so it will go away again.
