  • yes.. the morning before the 1hr I hadn't eaten breakfast, but I found a mini pack of spree from a birtrhday party my daughter was at and ate that. It was a little high, 3hr was fine.

  • I had my first one come back slightly high and had to do the hourly one for 4 hours. It sucked but it came back fine. With the hourly testing, they made me drink the entire bottle within 5 minutes. I almost got sick(since I hadn't eaten past midnight) but I reminded myself, if I threw up, I would have to drink it again. So, that gave me motivation to keep it down. It was all worth it once I had my daughter! Good luck, I'm sure it will come back fine
