Hi all, does everybody have to get this done, or is it up to the hospital? Im attending portlaoise so just wondering does everybody get it done, as I haven't heard anything about it yet?

I never had it. I'm in the rotunda. I was told by my GP they'll only do the test if you have a family history of diabetes or if baby is especially big.

I'm getting it done at 28 weeks as my dad has type2 diabetes - if you read the sticky on gestational diabetes you will get info there!

Unless you display symptoms of GD then they won't test you!
