I never had to go for the test that I (probably) would have failed miserably anyways, and it had the added bonus of never getting me officially labeled GD (saved my little girl some heel sticks immediately after birth). If they're concerned (and YOU are concerned) maybe you should offer to monitor yourself for a few days or a week to see what your blood sugar is REALLY doing.
One of the luckiest woman in the world!
