How long do you fast before the test? I totally forgot to ask the doc and then forgot again when I called the draw station to make the appointment. I am going to drink the sugar at about 9am and I just finished eating dinner at 7:43. I would assume fasting means either "nothing after midnight" or 12hrs...neither of which is a problem but I feel like I'm doing something wrong lol.

Overnight. Some docs say 8 hours, some say 12 - wouldn't hurt to call and ask. Mine have always said 8 hours.
