I am wondering if anyone else is planning on refusing the glucose screening and if so what that conversation with your provider might be like. I have a an excellent midwife but she told me at our first appointment its a routine test her practice performs which really surprised me. She does natural childbirth and waterbirth so I really thought she would be less routine with testing. She is definitely a type "A" and I don't want to step on anyone's toes and sour the relationship, however I really think it's a waste of time. With my last pregnancy I was literally sick from the test and ended up testing positive and taking the three hour test. Everything was fine in the end, which I hear is quite common, and that is one of the reasons I think the test is unnecessary. I just don't want to put myself through the hassle and worry again! Any thoughts would be appreciated, I want to be able to back up my reasons!
