Glucose screening ? Anyone experienced moms with history of small babies skip this ? My midwife gave me this option to skip this screening

    You can refuse any test.  I didn't skip the glucose test but I had a friend who did because she didn't have any risk factors and didn't feel it was necessary.

  • As pp said you can skip any test so you have that option with anything.  I guess I don't understand why you would skip it?  It's a sugary drink with a blood draw, pretty much zero risk.

    For what it's worth I passed with flying colors both times, with my second I had a number of 69, extremely low and I will still take it the next time.  I am a worrier and I don't see what the worry is about.
