Glucose Test at 18 weeks???

So I went in for some regular blood work today and they had me do the 1 hour glucose test.  First of all, I don't remember ever having to do this test so early with any of my other 3 pregnancies.  With them I did it around 26-28 weeks or so, and as of now I'm only 18.  Has anyone else done it this early?  Also, from what I remember I thought we were supposed to fast prior to this test, and I mentioned that I didn't and they said it was fine.  I'm so confused!

I did mine at 9 weeks due to previous GD with the other two.....It's better to get it caught early.

With my first 2 pregnancies I had 2 one hr glucose test. I had one around 12 weeks and then another around 28 weeks. Not sure why I had 2 but  never hurts to double check it,

Well thanks for the responses, I guess it's not as weird as I thought.  It was just sprung on me and usually I was given a warning.  I have a new doctor this pregnancy so I thought maybe she was coo-coo =)

Last year when I was pregnant I just hat the later one... this time, I had to go at 18 weeks as well. After they got the results, she was all, this was just the early one, you know you have to do the regular one later. WTF????

I never had one that early and I never have had to fast for a glucose test.

 If you have to do it early its because there is something in your blood or urine indicating that you have gd. good luck!
