I'm taking my glucose test tomorrow and I'm fasting now!! Let me just say that my little guy is NOT appreciating this!! He is hitting me like he's's like he's saying "Feed me woman!!!" And my body has picked the perfect time to have cotton mouth!!! I just want a drink!!!! Did anyone else find it hard to do this fasting thing?

  • Awe they are making you fast? That sucks! I go next week for mine and I was told I don't have to fast (and didn't fast with my others) but was told to avoid super sweet things like soda, candy, etc. If you want you can swish some water around and spit it out or maybe sugar free gum? GL I would be totally irritated not being able to drink anything.

  • I remember fasting for I think 8-12 hours before mine. I was PISSED at the time! LOL! I was like, "How can you tell a pregnant woman not to eat??? That's just cruel!" Thankfully my test was early the next morning. What was really hard was when I had to go back for the 2nd test (b/c I failed the first) and its a 3 hour that was no food for a LONG time. I hope you're done soon! Oh & if memory serves, you're allowed water.
