I would research false positives on glucose tests if I were you, and go in there well-educated! Also, couldn't you try nutritional therapy before going on isulin? Many GD women do fine just on the restricted diet. If there is no other indication that you are high risk other than the glucose test results, I would honestly fight it tooth and nail. Good luck!
There is some research that shows that insulin-dependent GD mamas are more likely to have a stillborn baby after a certain point in pregnancy, so I know that a lot of GD protocols are based on that. There's one teaching hospital that puts all insulin dependent mamas on hospital bedrest starting at 37w and induces at 39w.
HOWEVER, since you don't know yet if you are insulin-dependent, it seems like a really HUGE jump to go straight to a c-section for going one day "past due." I would certainly, CERTAINLY argue with that one, no matter WHAT they say!! I mean, at least ATTEMPT an induction, right? What happens in that 24 hour period that magically and suddenly makes labor something you and baby are incapable of surviving??
