3 hour GTT

Ugh, 3 hour glucose test in 5 hours and I haven't gotten any sleep. I'm going to be one crabby momma tomorrow!! As if starving myself wouldn't already do that!!

Re: 3 hour GTT

  • I had a hard time sleeping before my 3 hour, also.  Hopefully they can give you a bed so you can nap between blood testing, like they did me.  Although, I must say, I felt like the little kid from "Big Daddy" while trying to get comfortable on the exam bed paper.

  • I had my 3 hr. GTT today, and didnt sleep well at all last night.  They didn't give me anywhere to lie down either, so I was stuck in the waiting room the whole time.  Also, I was responsible for getting myself to the lab at every hour, so I was clock checking the whole time.  Ugh.  Time for a nap.
  • I was specifically told during my 3-hour that I was NOT allowed to sleep.  They actually checked on me to make sure that I wasn't sleeping.  I find it strange that so many others were able to sleep.

  • They told me that I couldn't sleep too, wasn't expecting that but she said that it could raise the levels so it was a bad idea and if someone saw me sleeping they'd wake me up...it was so busy at the lab that I would have felt way too weird sleeping in front of everyone anyway...
