How far along are you? Every pregnancy that do a glucose test unless they already know you are diabetic. I just did my glucose test today and scared to find out that I have gestational diabetes. I hope it's negative.
Im 26+3 weeks non of my other friends have ever had this before im just really nervous its gna affect baby if I have it and have to wait over a week til I have the blood test. Hate the waiting game xx
I am 25+3 and am going in tomorrow for the glucose test. It is routine so don't worry!
It's routine! I'm going Wednesday for mine and I'll be 28 weeks. The time that's cause for concern is if they want you to come back for a three hour test. Don't stress and follow the instructions for most accurate result.
I had to go in for my 3 hour test today, find out my results tomorrow. really hoping its nothing,keeping my fingers crossed
Im 28 weeks and have to go for mine on Friday. Not looking forward to not being able to eat for 14 hours though
Katielou92 why would you not be able to eat for 14 hours? I have never heard of that. My Dr. Says it's fine to eat and drink, as long as it's not sugary, up until I drink the drink. Then I'm not allowed to eat or drink until the test is performed which is within an hour
It depends on the lab. The lab that I've had all my glucose tests at do not allow you to eat after midnight before the test. When you go in they ask if you've ate and if you had they make you reschedule
Yea, it's a fasting test. Even if it's not sugar, carbohydrates turn into sugar so that's why you really can't eat anything. I had to fast for a minimum of 9hrs. A small amount of water was ok for me to drink.
My midwife said dont eat from 9pm the night before and then I have my first blood test at half 10 then the drink and then my other at half 12 and they monitor me through it. Im in the uk so if you're from somewhere else it might be different for each place x
