  When it was time for me to schedule mine, my OB wanted me to schedule it as late as possible. She told me that the reason for that was if you go in too early, you have a better chance of getting a false positive and having to go for the three hour test. I took her advice, went in, and my test was fine.

  That being said, there are other reasons that your doctor may want you to get an early test. I know that some girls in my birth month had much earlier tests, and it was because they had higher risks of having GD. I would ask your doctor about the pros and cons of going early, or if there’s anything in your medical history that makes them want you to have the earlier test. Good luck!
