thats odd... usually they're only an hour... is it the initial test? Glucose peaks at 30 mins to an hour and you normally don't have to fast unless your original test came back abnormal. Double check because if theyre making you wait two hours then that's not accurate.

I did ask. They said instead of doing the 1 hr and coming back for the 3 hr (if u fail) they have switched straight up to the 2 hr one and if u fail that's it. You don't test again. She said its more accurate? Idk I really don't want to do it -_- a lot of them has switched around here I've noticed.

Hi ladies! How gross is that glucola stuff? Blech.

I flunked the one-hour and passed the three-hour, but my midwife still wants me to monitor my blood sugar until the end of the pregnancy. She said my fasting blood sugar level and first-hour blood draw numbers barely passed. The blood testing is a drag. I sometimes forget to take it. It's been a week, and my numbers look okay for the most part: under 100 before eating and under 140 a couple of hours after eating. Better safe than sorry, I suppose.
