Hi ladies. I need some assitance. I am going from the "let them tell em everythign to do thing" with having a baby to saying.. why are you doign that. for what reason do you want to do that? I am looking into refusing the glucose test and possibly the group B strep. Do you have any resources to direct me towards? I cannot seem to find facts about these tests. but they don't seem to be reasonable to me.

I am almost 18 weeks so I know that they'll suggest it in a few weeks when I go to the Ob. I wish I had a midwife closer but I do not. I do hospital birth but I have my reasons for that
But you never know since i have such speedy labors.. I might just not make it


thanks for any help you can offer. I really appreciate it


thanks ladies.

There is also some fabulous information on both of these topics in Henci Goer's book, THe Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth. I highly recommend that book!!

Here's a link from Henci about the Gestational Diabetes issue (but still get the book, or check it out from the library!!):
