I *knew* I shouldn't have asked my MW about having a GTT when I saw her last week . I am overweight, but not giganticly enormous and at booking my BMI was 29. So I asked her if I needed a dreaded GTT and she said 'hmmm' ... looked through my notes and then said 'probably not, your BMI at booking didn't make you fit the criteria and as you are less now than at booking I am not overly concerned, but it might be an idea to do one anyway. Balls! Please tell me it's not as horrendous as everyone says? I have very deep, thin veins and there's only one Phlebotomist at the hospital that can draw my blood, so really do not want to be put though anything horrendous as getting my blood normally is bad enough!
