Hmm...sounds like I missed it. Because of insurance and moving I've not had an appt since late November. We moved right around Thanksgiving and insurance didn't kick in till yesterday.

I've done it around 28 weeks with my pregnancies. I opted out of it with my 3rd, but when we moved to NY when I was 37 weeks they forced me to do it anyway.

This time they had me to it at 24 weeks since I'm carrying twins.

My doctor normally does it at the 28 week appointment.

They tested me at 16 weeks this time too. They were keeping a close eye on me since DS was so big. My numbers were 93, I think, and they need it to be until 130. I will be tested again at 28 weeks.

My dr does it at 24 weeks. but like the others, i know a few who do it at the 28 week appt too. My dr is making me do the 3 hr test right away since it's "diagnostic" and i'm at a higher risk with the twins. SO not looking forward to spending 3+ hrs at the hospital waiting on blood draws!

Mine is being done at 26 weeks. They have given me the drink already. It's called, "glucola". Bleh.

Who doesn't want to chug one of these???

My doctor does it btwn 24-28wks. Since I had the shoulder dsytocia issue with Katie she had me take it on the earlier end and I just had it last week. Kinda silly since I've never had GD or even close to a positive result on that test in my other pregnancies, didn't have it with Katie, and she was not even that large (8lbs 3 oz).

I passed the test with a score of 80, my doc said they want it under 140, better under 120.

28 weeks here! I failed the 1 hour with Abbey and had to do the 3 hour and passed thankfully. I'm all worried about failing again...

They did mine at 26 weeks. Was I supposed to fast?? They never told me that. It really wasn't that bad. I got the whole thing down in 5 big gulps.

I'm doing mine next week at 28 weeks. I could have done it at 26 weeks if I wanted.

I had mine today at nearly 26 weeks. My practice doesn't have me fast (very grateful for that, not sure why some do and some don't). I also had the glucola stuff and I got the lemon lime flavor. I don't think it's bad at all. I just eat something before hand that's not sugary (cheese and whole wheat crackers) and then drink it. No problems at all.
