...since my last doctors appointment in May. It's strange that it's been that long right? Anyways, I was just wondering if it's likely that they will do my glucose test today for gestational diabetes? I'm 25.5 weeks.

I think you have to fast before it? Maybe that's just if you fail. I'm not sure. I was thinking the norm is 28 weeks.

I doubt they will, especially if they didn't say you would. You're supposed to fast beforehand. Like Michelle said, the norm is around 28 weeks.

That is a long time in between. Mine have always been every 4 weeks. I got my paperwork to go to the lab for my glucose test at the last appointment. I'm supposed to go between weeks 27 - 29. I'll probably go at 28 weeks. Can't believe we are at that point already! It's getting so exciting!!!

It's about that time? I will have mine at my next appointment in a week. I'd say they might give you one now, or at your next appointment.

They are supposed to give you the drink at your previous appointment with instructions so that you can drink it for your next appointment. How come they aren't scheduling you every 4 weeks?

I also agree that it's weird you haven't been seen in so long... As for the glucose test, they'll probably schedule it at this visit.

My doctor's office considered the 20 week u/s as an appt, even though I did not see a midwife. So it will be 8 or 9 weeks between my last appt and next appt with a midwife. I will do my glucose test at 28 weeks. They will give me instructions at my next appt and I will do it before or after seeing the midwife.

I was told I didn't need to fast before the glucose test. I didn't need to do anything special.

Interesting, sounds like mixed experiences. I'm guessing they will make me come back in 2 weeks for the test.

I'm not really sure why they haven't seen me in 9 weeks, it's just how they scheduled it the last time I was there in May. Kaiser isn't the greatest though :/

Turns out they are having me do my glucose test today. Good thing I prepared and was careful what I ate!
