I had mine a week ago, so I feel your pain! I had to fast from midnight on and didn't have my appointment until 2 in the afternoon. Good luck!

I've never had to fast for the glucose test. That would suck!

I refused the glucose test this time around and instead, had one of the midwives in my office prescribe me a glucometer so I could test myself. Way easier. Keep it in mind for next time! Do you have to fast completely?? Maybe some vegetable juices, so at least you're getting some sustenance? This is why I don't like these glucose tests - it's not safe for your blood sugar to be low for that long!! If I don't eat when I am hungry, my blood sugar dips into the 50s and I feel like crap!!

My fasting blood sugar is 68 and I haven't heard from my doctor about my results yet, so I'm assuming I don't have gestational diabetes. I figure I would have been called otherwise, right?
