glucose test

Should I eat breakfast before I go? If so, what should I eat?

Side note..if I don't eat breakfast I'll be starving. I always eat when I wake up and my test isn't until 10

If they specifically said it is a fasting glucose test then you cant eat. But if not then you can eat. I had one last week and I didnt have to fast.

I go for my soon and my doctor said I can eat anything in the morning as long as it's not super sugary like a slurpee or something lol. I'll probably eat scrambled eggs but if you don't like eggs. . Then you can eat like a plain non sugar cereal,  a salad, something light and then after your done you can always eat something else.

I never take the test unless they watch me drink the stuff I go out side to sip on it and poor it out or say I have to go potty. Some drs offices watch you to make sure... that stuff is gross.   They always told me not to eat before test.

I'll let you know how it goes lol. I'm sure mine will watch me take it. They ate very thorough , everytime you go they even do a drug test. I like it though, it makes me feel like they are doing everything in their power to ensure my baby is safe and healthy.

That's crazy that so many women on here  said their drs said not to fast. I've seen 4 different obgyns and all sais for the glucose test is a fasting test. Maybe that's why I see so many women on here saying they failed their test? I've never heard of not fasting for this test tho crazy!
