I'd compromise on this one, honestly. I've taken the 3 hour test twice; it sucks, it made me ill, but it was over in a few hours and life went on.

Just doesn't make much sense. You carb loaded for dinner and got a high reading....which could put you in the GD range. A normal healthy person should be able to tolerate some pasta and ice cream for dinner and have normal sugar levels.

I would do the GD test because some hospitals will take the newborn to the nursery for a 24 hour hold to watch their blood sugars in moms who skipped or passed on the GD test.
