Glucose Test

I'm taking the glucose test very soon. What should/shouldn't I eat/drink beforehand to increase my chances of passing? They never gave me a paper or anything with info.

  • They should give you a paper of what you can/can not eat prior to the test! I believe I was only aloud a piece of cheese? and then absolutely nothing by a certain time.

  • I didn't eat anything before. I was too scared of failing!

  • I was told not to eat anything after i drank the drink and had my blood drawn an hour later. I was never told not to eat or drink anything before. I past my test with both my pregnancies.
