Best to do it for extra precaution so both you and baby can get the attention needed if confirm to have GD cos it is very risky if one have it and does not control the sugar intake. I'm 36 and had my 1st OGTT. Never had it done before with my other pregnancies. I'm GD free. Anyway, it's just a drink and withdraw of blood. That's all.
