Glucose Test?

Strep B?

RH?

I have refused pretty much everything. My MW barely asks though, LOL! I did get my hemoglobin checked, but that's it. What about you guys? What and why do you test for?

I declined all of those. I had RH testing with my first pg though, so I wasnt too concerned. Glucose, I monitored my sugar for a week, and b/c it all checked out there was no reason to check it any further. She occasionally checked my sugar (maybe twice?) and my hemoglobin (particularly close to delivery).

I had the GD test done. I had no RH problems with my first pregnancy so I didnt see the use in that. I just had the GD test done because of some symptoms that I had been having as well as gaining 20 pounds over a month. All was well, just a low sugar issue.
