I've had all my bookings with midwife sorted till DC is due in early may but I don't think we've been booked in for the GD test - think it was 28 weeks with DD1 but that was 4 years ago - have things changed?

In Bradford it's 26 weeks.

It's generally 28 weeks, but often done at other stages if I indicated eg earlier for previous GDM, perhaps later if baby measuring large, glucose in urine etc

They booked mine in for 25 weeks.

Just checked and mine is booked for 27 weeks, but it was the hospital that sorted out the date and time for that during my first scan rather than my community midwife (who just indicated that it would be recommended when talking through my family history at booking in)

Mine is for 28 weeks.

Mine was at 28 weeks and only because of family history of diabetes. Was told I'd be having one at my booking in app.

My midwife has said it's not necessary for me to have the GD tests. I thought it was a bit odd but I am 30wks 5d today so it would probably be too late now anyways confused

I had mine at 28 weeks but was told up to 31 weeks is fine, though this seems a bit late to me...

Mine is 6th March which will make me 28 weeks. Think this is generally when they are done, like others have said smile just thought I would chirp in.. grin
