  • I took the 1hr test & had high results...but they skipped the 3hr because with how high my test results were with the 1hr they didn't want to risk having me fast & then pumping me full of sugar. I wish you luck though. Also, know that a lot of the time the 1hr tests have iffy results, if anything just know that too much sugar is never good & just eat as healthy as you can =)

  • i never had high results with any of my 3 boys. I never had to fast before any test either. I don't look foreward wtih this pregnancy to getting that glucose test done. I dont want to do it this time...i hate that stuff you have to drink.

  • I didn't have breakfast the morning of my test, but I ate a mini spree pack from a goodie bag my daughter got a brithday party.. my results were a little high, I did the 3 hr and came back fine.
