Thanks everyone and to megmegcleve.
You definitely have a choice in the US. They can't force you, you can also take long term meter tests. Research all your options, talk with your midwife or Dr.
If you're in the US it might not be an option. I'm a type 2 diabetic so I for sure know the seriousness of this. The thing with an A1C test is that it tests you for the past three months, respectively. Sometimes it may be a new problem and not something that has happened the whole time you've been pregnant so it's not as accurate as the glucose test, or the time being. I know you are worried about putting that much sugar in your body but you have to think of it as a preventative for long term effects on your baby. If you have GD it can cause your baby's heart to thicken which can cause baby to grow at faster rate (like steroids) which can cause heart problems and organ problems, not to mention all sorts of other things. You can inquire to your doctor about a different test but you definitely need to have something equivalent done. I've been dealing with this my whole pregnancy and it isn't a walk in the park so the sooner you know the better it is for you and baby
You can refuse the test. An alternative is to monitor your glucose for a week using one of the meters people with diabetes use. You would log every rest, then bring it in during your next appointment
I'm the same as u I hate putting sugar in my body, I had to drink 75 grams of it :(
Sorry about auto correct. I meant to type Glucola (GTT) test
