Fast from midnight, test at 8.30. It lasted 2 hours, and once I'd drunk the nasty syrup stuff, was allowed water. Good luck - it wasn't as bad as I'd anticipated, although I had to go straight for food afterwards as I was coming over all odd .
Eeikee. I didn't know about this test. How many weeks are you when they do it? I'm 15 weeks now and still HAVE to eat at 3.00am, 6.30, 8.30, 10.00am to not be sick in the morning. How will I cope with that! Agghhhh!
I'm with PAL - normal to just do a GTT if there are risk factors. If you've had GD before or have 2 risk factors, then you should be tested around 16 weeks, if you have one risk factor then it's normally around 28 weeks.
I've one risk factor - weight and I'm being tested at 29 weeks. It's a 2 hour test and I've to fast from 9.30pm, small sips of water only allowed. Test is at 9am - I'll be ready for chewing my arms off by the time it's over . A bit miffed as regular blood tests have always shown a very low blood sugar - I guess it's just another box ticking excerise for the NHS .
