Some swear it's something you NEED to take, others claim it's undue amounts of sugar and stress on baby.
If you have no risk factors [previous GD, previous blood sugar issues when not pregnant, excessive weight gain (I'm talking like 4-5lbs a week... really excessive), previously extra large baby, etc.] is it worth doing?
Keep in mind your urine is monitored at every check up for protein/sugars for diabetes anyhow - according to most practices.
I have a test coming up and am starting to do research on it myself. Any information any of you have will be very helpful.
