  • i had to go in on a fast. my apt was in the morning and i couldn't eat after midnight the night before. they had me do a pee sample as soon as i got there, then i had to drink something that was kinda like sunkist, but pretty thick. it wasn't that bad. then after an hour i had to have my blood drawn and they use your urine and blood to see how much the stuff you drank changes your blood sugar.

  • Okay here's the deal. The first test consists of a 1 hour glucose test; they take your blood, and then you drink a flavored fizzy drink (tastes like soda with WAY too much syrup in it...) anyways you have to drink that quickly and then they take your blood again after an hour. If it is over the recommended amount, then you are stuck doing the three hour test.

    The three hour test is very similar to the first one only they test your blood every hour for three hours, and instead of drinking the sugary stuff, you actually have to eat something.

    If your numbers are high in any of the three hours they will likely put you on a diabetic diet (low sugar and carb intake,) and monitor your glucose by taking your blood every two weeks until the birth. Good luck!
