Denying testing, anyone else?


As far as the glucose test goes, after reading more about it I’ve decided I’d like to skip it unless they will give me the jelly bean option. Wondering if anyone else has previously done this?

I’m aware that I don’t “have” to do anything.. I’m just trying to figure out what I’m okay with and not okay with.

I feel like nothing is fully explained at my ob/gyn and they just expect you to follow everyone else. Like here’s your list of tests we are doing. PUMP THE BRAKES. I want to know why they are necessary and what they are for. It’s becoming really frustrating! They just give me a paper and tell me to head to the first floor with no explanation of what I’m doing and why.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

EDIT: I have done the glucose test in the past to check for diabetes.. but from what I’ve read it does not have ingredients I’m okay with ingesting while pregnant. I’m curious about other testing and why others may not be doing certain tests
