Yes you need to complete the test. Having undiagnosed GD can be bad for you and the baby.

here you HAVE to get it done, it's not an optional test.

Usually it is mandatory just for the simple fact if you do have GD, you may be put as high risk and they monitor the baby closer because of it. Mine was nasty too, but the whole pregnancy process isn't meant to be pretty.

i havnt done mine yet but i told my doc i didnt want to do the glucose drink so she ordered a test where i can just eat breakfast after the first blood draw instead of drinking the drink.

the only reason im thinking of not bothering is because the midwife wasnt even going to send me for the test in the first place because im just slightly over weight

that doesn't have anything to do with anything lol. i'm considered obese and i got it done. if you're overweight then you NEED to get it done.

The nurse thought i only had to drink one small glass of the horrible drink and after the hours the other nurse informed me that i was supposed to drink the whole jug so the test couldn't be carried out properly :/
