I;m guessing if you were getting it you would be told in advance and by now?
Yes what i thought too, but my midwife had mentioned it at 16 weeks. I dont know will just wait and see i guess, if i was as you said i would of thought i'd of heard by now. Anyway thanks for the responses x
In the US it's standard for everyone regardless of family history! It will happen between 26 and 32 weeks! You do not have to have any risk factors to get it....you could be 24 and in perfect health and still get gestational diabetes! I think dr.s don't say anything cause it's really not a big deal...just another blood test like you've had in the past....really no different other than you drink stuff before!
mine was arranged when i went for my booking appointment at the hospital, it was arranged for 26 weeks. i was told they would be sending a letter out but haven't had anything yet. my test will be at the hospital because the information booklet i have says that i will not be allowed to walk around and will have to remain lying down/seated for the two hours
