    i think its only if they find sugar in sample, baby measuring big or if theres history of diabetes in your family.
    Could of changed though as its been 4yrs since i had one done with my son, i know i will likely get one as my babies are always huge lol

    You get it if you have a high bmi, high risk pregnancy or pcos. I had it due to having pcos. If you've not heard of it then your midwife probably sees there being no need for it x
