I'm going public this time and need to get my GTT done this week. Do you have to make an appointment to get it done or can I just turn up at the hospital pathology?
My midwife never said so I'm a bit confused and don't want to turn up ravishing and fasted to be sent home.

Do you need to make an appointment?

Call and check. I had to make an appointment for mine. I think you need to so they can make sure they take blood from you at the right intervals. Good luck!

Do you have a pathology slip already. If not you will need to call your midwife and organise one. If you do you just turn up take a number etc.

I had to book for my GTT. They only are allowed to have a certain amount of ppl doing it at once. Call your preferred pathology place to discuss.

Ring and check. Some pathologies you don't need to, others you do.
Went to two different places for my pregnancies- one I had to book and the other I just had to turn up with my slip

Book otherwise you could end up waiting for ages.

I've spent a fair amount of time in pathology places. I booked mine and was allowed in first - I think they like to have the glucose drink prepared and ready. At the main pathology place in town there's usually a line of up to 10 people at opening time and the GTT ladies always get let in first.
So best to call the pathology place to book.

I went to melbourne path and didn't have to. I rang and confirmed. You rock up, and take a number.
I picked one which wasn't too busy, and had comfy seats in the waiting room. 😄
