This study was descriptively and cross-sectionally done to determine knowledge, views and attitudes of pregnant women about oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). The study was completed with 246 pregnant women who were admitted to clinic of obstetrics and gynecology of Bucak Public Hospital and accepted to join the study between June and December, 2019. The data of the study were collected by the authors using a questionnaire form after literature screening. To assess the data; chi-square test and logistic regression analysis were used. It was found that 33.7% of the participant pregnant women were aged between 29 and 34 years and 35.8% of them had OGTT or thought to have it done. It was found that 63.4% of participant pregnant women had sufficient knowledge of OGTT and 49.6% of the women told that OGTT was necessary for their own health and babies’ health. According to the logistic regression analysis, it was 2.481 times more likely for those pregnant women who worked and had an income than those who did not work and have an income (p:0.004), it was 2.833 times more likely for those pregnant women who had an income equal to expenses than those who had an income higher than expenses (p:0.006) and it was 4.195 times more likely for those who had third pregnancy than those who had fourth pregnancy (p: 0.015). It was seen that majority of the pregnant women had knowledge of OGTT but the rate to get OGTT during pregnancy was low.
