I failed the GTT by one point at 28 weeks. One of the OBs at the office where I go reviewed the results with me and decided that instead of making me do the 3 hour test she'd allow me to 1 hr. test again. Well, by the time I made it out to my car I'd decided "no way" and never did the test again.
I was all pumped up for a big discussion at my 32 week appt. about how silly it was to do again for a 1 pt. failure... how I have none of the risk factors, that their random number was still below the acceptable in some other practices, blah blah blah... I was ready.

The OB I saw this time measured me, took my blood pressure, etc... all normal... and then before I could even bring it up she said "so, I'm not worried about our glucose, are you?"
Took the wind right out of my sails.
I was thrilled. She said she was writing in my chart that she'd told me that I didn't have to do anything about it if that's what I chose and that she was okay with it.

then she tells me that she never did any of those test when she was pregnant.

So, I'm free to enjoy the rest of my pregnancy. Granted, I'm being a little more careful with my diet but what a relief to not have to do battle.
Just wanted to let people know that some OBs are reasonable.
