Gestational Diabetes testing

I am using the midwife center and they are completely okay with me staying low carb for pregnancy. I talked to them today (first appointment, I am 7 weeks) about gestational diabetes testing. She would like me to meet with the high risk doctor just to discuss the testing. Her initial response was that we could do the 3- hour and fail it and then we would do the week testing. I would really like to avoid this.

I feel like I can 1: refuse the testing and deal with that battle or 2: carb load for a few days before the test.

So, those of you who stayed low carb for pregnancy, how did you handle the testing?

My midwife doesn't require the 3 hour test, she'll have me track my blood sugar with a meter for a week. She said "that's what I would have you do if you did have GD so why make you go through the nasty 3 hour test?"
