Glucose Test
« on: July 26, 2011 at 07:09 PM »
I am 32 weeks and at my dr appt yesterday he asked me to do the glucose test. When I spoke with the nurse to find out when to come we found the only time that worked was two Saturdays from now - bringing me to almost 34 weeks. Isn't this late in the game to bother with something like this? It didn't occur to me to ask. When my dr suggested it it was not in relation to any other factors - he asked if I had it done yet (I hadn't) so said I might as well do it.

It does seem pretty late to get it done. I'm surprised they would wait so long. Even if it is late, it might be good to check it out, just to make sure. That way, if needed, you can follow up after the pregnancy for your own health. Also, if needed, you could work on controlling your blood sugars before the birth. But, I'd still ask your doctor a little more about it.

Yeah, that does seem a little late.  I had mine done at 28 weeks.  I was told though that sometimes it doesn't show up until later.

it is a little late, but now is when your baby starts to grow in leaps and bounds.  If your sugars are out of control then you could end up with macrosomia (huge baby), so it's a good idea to find out.  I've always had my second one at 28 weeks.
