I am so unhappy. I have a yeast infection that won't go away after 5 weeks so they're just assuming I'll fail the 1 hr and giving me the 3 hr fasting test next week. Any tips? I think it's ridiculous. I have none of the risk factors (normally at a healthy wt, good blood pressure, 30 yrs) just that I'm carrying twins would be the only higher risk. My only living child weighed just over 6 lbs at birth. Anyway, I'm frustrated that I have to go through a whole morning at the clinic undoubtedly feeling awful since I will have such low blood sugar from fasting and somehow have to tough it out all morning. Not trying to whine, I just wish there were something I could do to make me pass it easier. My NP said to eat a king sized candy bar every day for 3 days before. I guess I'll just bake brownies or something bc I'm not buying candy bars.
They're not even giving you a chance to fail the 1 hr? That's rotten. :(
The office I'm at now does a 2 hour test for everyone because of the high failure rate. Which I guess is better than 3.
