Since fasting is mandatory for the 3hr, they told me only water after midnight but i'll do something similar with low carb/high protein dinner and nothing but water after 9pm...I wish I felt more optimistic about passing. The nurse said if I fail 2 out of the 3 draws they will consider that a fail and I get the GD label....that worries me because it seems certain i'll fail the 1hr again since I just did which really means if I don't pass at 2hr mark then then 3hr mark is meaningless, even if I pass at 3hrs they'll still consider the test failed.
When I had the 3 hour test I passed the 1st hour then failed the 2nd and 3rd draws....
