@Wino0920 My 1 hour is tomorrow too... let's do this.This is my first pregnancy and my first GCT ever. I've had insane, uncontrollable sugar cravings this entire pregnancy so it's going to be hard if I have to cut it out. I actually moved my test UP two weeks because I've had horrific carpal tunnel syndrome the last few weeks, and Google told me that this could be a sign of diabetes. I started getting paranoid.
I have my one hour on Wednesday. They said I don't need to fast so should I just eat breakfast like normal? I'm overweight so I'm nervous I'm going to fail.
@michaela0704 I was given the drink at my 24 week appt to have the test done at 28 weeks as well. For those of you with GD in previous pregnancies, did you have any symptoms? It seems like a lot of the symptoms mirror common pregnancy symptoms like increased hunger, thirst, and urination.
@lmudra my doctor said fasting is best, but if you want to eat something, protein is the best way to go (something like eggs and bacon/sausage if you're doing it in the morning). He said to stay away from carbs like bread and anything with natural or added sugars, including fruits, juice, syrup, etc. The nurse told me some women get really nauseous if they chug the glucose drink on an empty stomach, and if you vomit you obviously have to redo it.
