I failed. I had to fast for 8-10hrs before taking the test. I have to fast for 10hrs before taking the 3hr tomorrow morning.
Newgurl, I think you brought up something interesting.
I think it's also interesting that I've read you shouldn't have to fast for the 1hr, you can have a small snack beforehand. I didn't fast with DS, nothing was ever mentioned about it. But now, years and years later, more drs are asking their patients to fast and it seems the failure rate is going up. Not down. I also read the 1hr isn't very accurate anyway, it's just a quicker/less expensive test for them to do.
DS2 (Due in May!!)
