Ugh, just found out my glucose screen test was abnormally high and they want me to take the three-hour glucose tolerance test. Anyone else been through this? I hate the thought of having my blood drawn every hour for three hours, but what worries me the most is the fasting. Apparently, I have to begin fasting at midnight the night before. The test is in the morning at 8:00 am, but continues until 11:00 am (so essentially I will have to go 11 hours without eating). I am not one who can skip breakfast (even when I am not pregnant). I am just so annoyed about the whole thing. Anyone ever refuse the test and just start to follow a strict diet with occasional blood screening?
