Have my 1 hour tomorrow afternoon — The Bump
3rd Trimester

Have my 1 hour tomorrow afternoon

I am kind of nervous. I have been diagnosed borderline diabetic since high school. So I am scared this test is going to be positive.

  • You'll do fine!  Good luck and don't forget that you must fast.  Sometimes they forget to tell you that major fact before you go.

    My drink said to eat normal right on the bottle.  You do not have to fast.  In fact, mine told me I had to eat breakfast before my 8:30 appt.

    that sounds really early.  most suggest between 24-28 weeks I thought.  I had mine at 28 weeks and 2 days.

    Not sure. My OB doesn't strike me as being on the ball. He doesn't really listen, or give me time to talk. He does get the job done though.  I love the staff at his office. That is why I stay with him.

  • My doctor told me to eat 2 hours before. But nothing sugary.

  • GL- hope everything turns out OK.  I have mine on Wednesday.  I'm super nervous too.  I've been cravings carbs and sugar my whole pregnancy.  At least we'll know soon.
  • I have mine on Tuesday at 9:15 and they told me to fast after midnight....go figure!
  • I'm having mine tomorrow at 28 w 1 day. The 1-hour is a non-fasting test so you should eat as you normally do. My doc suggested 2 hours before I take the test.

    If the results are of concern, you'll be scheduled for the 3-hour test which is a fasting test.

  • I have mine today (in about 30 minutes). I was told to have toast and water before hand. Do you find out results immediately or do you have to wait for labs to come back?
