I thought I remembered there being a thread about this, but I can't find it. Can anyone can point me there, if it exists, so we don't rehash it here?
I'm doing the 28-week glucose screening test this week. My instructions are to eat a light lunch before I drink the stuff, timing it so I finish the drink 1 hour before the blood draw.
Can anyone advise me on:
1. How long before I drink the stuff should I eat lunch?
2. What should I eat? They did advise me against fruit and "sugar," but I was hoping for a more specific recommendation.
I'm not trying to "trick the test" in anyway, of course--just want to not feel sick, and to cut down my chances of a false positive, if that's possible.
Thanks in advance, Nina
