b/c the drink makes me really ill
b/c I think it's crap to force a completely unhealthy substance on someone to see if they respond healthily to it. Counterintuitive.
When pushed, I have done my own blood sugars at home doing fasting and 1 hour and 2 hours after a meal for a week to satisfy the medical people
the only one I've ever refused is HIV b/c I'm a blood donor and I know I'm not + and I don't want to pay for it again and again.
I've never declined it, just figure the less often you send waves into the womb, the better. I have refused diagnostic U/S (the standard 20 week one) but have had some sort of U/S with all 7 of my pregnancies.
