I have read posts about this and just wondered does everyone have this test as routine or only if you are deemed high risk/there are reasons to request it? The reason I ask is that my mw has been off long term sick - which I know canot be helped. Anyway for various medical reasons I have been regsitered with the mw since 3 weeks (due to an emergency trip to hospital at this point with pains - very early I know) and due to high BP I have been under an obstetrician since who I see 4 weekly and mw who I have been seeing fortnightly and now see weekly. Its always a different midwife, think I have seen the same one possibly same two twice which seeing how frequently I go thats a lot of different mw's I have seen (am 30 weeks). Probably being OTT but so far I have to explain everytime why I am there, what I am being monitored for and have had to ask for everything, MAT forms, pregnancy grant forms, I had to say I didn't want the triple test as no one had mentioned it to me and I knew from here I had 3 days left in the time window for it to be done etc etc. The only thing that has happened are the scans which may be down the the ob rather than the mw. Last appointment mw told me the obstetrician was being ott with me and I didn't need to see her to be monitored as frequently and was fine (I haven't listened and will continue to be checked weekly as It'll be a different mw anyway and am doing whatever obstetrician says despite mw telling me to ignore his instructions!). Anyway is the glucose tolerance test something I should be having or not? Ooops just realised this has sort of turned into a mini-rant - sorry!!
