I was thinking about Adi too! I hope she's okay.

I ended up calling the doctor and I actually got a call back! They told me that there are no restrictions for the 1 hour glucose test, although I read online that eating beforehand can lead to a False Positive which would require you to have the 3 hour glucose test. I didn't make an appointment but the lab right near my doc's office does them, and I was told I don't need an appointment. I'm hoping to be there when they open (7:30) and then going right upstairs to my doctors appointment at 9.
I guess I'll fast anyway since all it means is just pushing off breakfast by about an hour.

I never fasted for my glucose tests, and in fact with my son I went to Starbucks and had a banana coconut frappachino (however you spell that) and muffin right before the test and it was still fine. I asked my dr about it after the fact and he said the only time that would really make a difference is if I were borderline gestational diabetic anyway.

We're flying home today so I need to shower and get moving.

For the 1 hour test, the doctor told Cathy that she shouldn't eat after ten pm and to only sip water the following morning before the test. The test has a very large percentage of false positives. I wouldn't mess with eating before and having it cause me to need to take the three hour test.

I have my one-hour test next month. The nurse said to just eat as normal, although I shouldn't come in chugging down a large container of chocolate milk....(someone had come in the week before doing that!). I will probably watch what I am eating for a day or so beforehand, as my sugar levels are always near the higher end of where they should be.

I went in for my glucose test today with an empty stomach and straight from there I had my appointment with the ob. Although her secretary is the one who told me that I don't have to fast, she asked if I ate anything before the test and I said no. Her response was "good girl! eating beforehand raises your risk of a false positive".....then why not tell me that over the phone? Either way - I'm glad it's over with and I'm glad I fasted for it. Now we keep our fingers crossed that I passed - I HATE the thought of the 3 hour test!

Regading the glucose test, if the dr says to fast then I would, but if not then I would eat as normal. I would think that if you take it upon yourself to fast before the test then you may get a false negative if you are in fact borderline to begin with. I'd rather know for sure one way or the other based on my dr's standards. And each dr does have his/her own standards, at least in terms of what number they use as their cutoff, and clearly with regards to fasting.

We finally got home pretty late last night, after our fight was delayed awhile. Luckily though both kids slept the whole flight and actually weren't bad about going to bed when we got home. Both kids have congested coughs so I kept them home from school today (plus they both woke up late with getting in late and the time change), but now I have to take them both with me on the metro to get my car back from the dealer (it was getting repaired for that broken seat while we were gone), which isn't really ideal, but oh well. I could in theory drop them off at school, but there was just a reported case of swine flu so I'm not super eager to take them back there anyway.

We are pretty sure that the doctor is off on our date by at least a week, so we might save you from being next.

As it was explained to us, the reason that the 1-hour test has such a high percentage of false positives is to ensure that all borderline cases were sent for the 3-hour test. While eating a snickers as you walk into the doctor's office may certainly cause you to 'fail' the GCT, fasting prior to the test wouldn't cause a person who should fail to pass.

Remember, the test is a gauge of how quickly your body processes the sugar that you are given at the start of the test. Eating prior may possibly add sugar to the end, thereby skewing the result, but it could not take away from that sugar that you drink at the start of the test.

sbell111-We are pretty sure that the doctor is off on our date by at least a week, so we might save you from being next.

I'm happy to be at the top haha I can't wait for this little boy to get here. He's been measuring big the past few doctors appointments and so I'm hoping that I won't actually make it to my due date. Been having a few contractions here and there...some painful, but nothing amounting to anything big.

Unfortunately Evan has been given strict orders from his grandma and grandpa to stay put until the 30th of October because they will be in Disney World all next week! Lets see if he listens

Congratulations Adi!!! Can't wait to hear all about baby Isabel entering the world!!!

Quick question... I know there are conflicting feelings about putting a bumper on the crib. What have you all done? Bumper or no bumper?

I just can't quit this thread

Anyway, I put a bumper in my son's crib and I haven't had any problems. The first month and a half he slept in a sleep positioner in the crib so it wasn't an issue and now when he's in there he's at a point where he can almost roll over on his own so I am not too worried about it even though the "experts" say you shouldn't have one. Plus once he is asleep he doesn't move at all, he sleeps like a rock so I don't think there's any huge risk of him suffocating. But I say do what you feel comfortable with. Once your baby is born if you feel like they move a lot and you think the bumper isn't a good idea then you can take it off till they get older.
