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.<br><br>
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<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> But you never know since i have such speedy labors.. I might just not make it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
thanks for any help you can offer. I really appreciate it<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

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!!<br><br>
Here's a link from Henci about the Gestational Diabetes issue (but still get the book, or check it out from the library!!):<br><br><a href="http://www.parentsplace.com/expert/birthguru/articles/0,10335,243381_269209,00.html" target="_blank">http://www.parentsplace.com/expert/b...269209,00.html</a>

You can look on the CDC's website for information on GBS. It is <a href="http://www.CDC.gov." target="_blank">www.CDC.gov.</a> They are the ones who did the big study that resulted in the new testing recommendations--ie that everyone gets screened. Good luck. J
