Pregnant after a Loss

oh crap, how long am i supposed to fast?

I'm doing my 3-hr test in the morning and was hoping to go first thing when I wake up.  The lab is open 24/7, so I can go early and get done early... before all the sickos and wierdos show up (I'll be waiting in the ER waiting room).  But I just looked at my lab orders and all it has is the GST circled and my doctor wrote "fasting 10 20 30".  What does this mean?  How long am I supposed to fast?

"Nothing after midnight" rings a bell, but I don't know if that's because I read it somewhere while researching online.  Anyone know the deal???

    Nevermind, I realized that since the lab is open 24/7 I could just call and ask.  Shoulda had a V8.

    (It's 8-10 hrs if anyone needs to know!)

    Where is the PIP of you in the too small overalls????

    and yes, fasting for at least 8 hours.  so "nothing after midnight" is right.  put some food in your purse that you can shove in your mouth the second the test is done!  you'll be glad you have it!

    HAHAHA  i just read your ocnfession!  when i was still working, i often had to change into bigger scrub pants after lunch (the hospital unit I work on provides scrubs for us).  It was SUCH a relief.

    I'm sorry, but I think it is just plain anti-American to have to fast on Halloween. Come over and I'll make you some pre-fast No Pudge Brownies... I looooove those.....and making some is my big exciting Halloween plan!
