Ever reject a 3 hr glucose tolerance test?

Marissa • Mom to three and owner of MommyKnowsWhatsBest.com. TTC after miscarriage.

I just had the one hour glucose test and failed. They want to now send me for the three hour test, and when I tried to decline, they told me the only alternative is to pick my finger twice a day to test my sugars. Um, no.

Thing is, this is my 4th pregnancy (27 weeks) and I know how this all works. Not once have I failed the 3 hr, not once have I had gestational diabetes. But the 3 hr makes me very sick, so I'm trying to avoid it.

Has anyone successfully avoided the 3 hr test? Did you have to do anything instead?
