Today I have an appointment at 5:45 for the gestational diabetes test. I am nervous about failing it because with this pregnancy I have been eating candy and sweets every day, sometimes even a few times a day. I was told that it doesn't matter how much or how little sugar you eat, it's how your body processes it but still, I'm nervous! Anyway, my question really is how many of you were told to fast and how many were not. I have heard of both but I'm really confused because with my first son I had the blood work done on a Saturday morning and my Dr told me to fast, this time (same Dr) its tonight at 5:45 and she told me I don't have to fast but if I were to fail this one then I will. I'm thinking she may be saying I don't have to cuz she doesn't want me going all day without eating but for those of you that didn't fast, did you at least NOT eat for a few hours before the test or not eat any sugary foods all day?? And did that help your results at all??
