In brief: Yes

You actually need a glucose challenge test (gct) in pregnancy, which is a 1 hour screening test for gestational diabetes.
If your screening test is abnormal then you need the glucose tolerance test (gtt), which is typically a 3 hour test. It is very important that all women are screened for gestational diabetes in their pregnancies.
