Hey everyone! I was told i would be having a GTT test but i have refused it.I feel its a waste of time especially as every woman has bloods taken at 28 weeks anyway and one lot of bloods at 28 weks is tested for glucose anyway.I was told i would have to have the test (not asked if i wanted it)because im overweight in my pregnancy and i guess they assume every woman is the same when overweight,that we will all end up with gestational diabeties! I know they have to be cautious with overweight women but i also feel they panic women when its stressful enough being pregnant.I am overweight but healthy enough with normal blood pressure.It makes me think that years ago they never had all these tests and theres alot of intervention nowadays that sometimes does more harm than good! Good luck to everyone with their pregnancies.
