my 1 hour. So I start a 3 day diet on Friday they want me to follow and then I start fasting at 10pm on Sunday night, I go in at 10am for my 3 hour test.
First time out of 4 kids I've had to do this. I'm not thrilled at all. I wasn't supposed to fast, so I had a small bowl of cheerios. I hope that didn't mess with it. It was barely over the failing line. Boo

Last time I failed my one hour also. I had breakfast before. Nothing extravagant like a continental breakfast lol, more like toast and milk lol. I get there do it and they asked if I ate. I'm like huh, if I was supposed to fast you should have told me. I passed the three hour no big deal. But it was long and boring.
Cheerios screwed you…that's what they said screwed me! I too failed my 1 hour…first time ever. I did my 3 hour yesterday. I told them what I ate an hour before the test and they said Fruit Loops and Cheerios are the two worst things to eat before! Now I'm waiting on my 3 hour results. I will be pissed if I fail!
Mom to Ava (8) and Layla (6). Bennett Scott due May 19, 2014!
This is why I am not going to eat before my appointment next wednesday(good thing its right away in the morning, so ill just eat after lol)! Sorry you failed your 1hour but if it was the cheerios then you should be fine and pass the 3hour.
That's the thing with the one hour test. It's a non fasting test but it's the not fasting that makes sooooooooo many people fail. I thunk I mentioned it earlier but here in Aus they are phasing out the one hour test entirely and you do the two hour one from the start. Saves the time of people failing the one hour and having to come in a second time for the fasting two hour one. Good luck with your next test! If you are just over then you'll probably go awesome on the next one .
When I went in for the 3 hour test, I asked the guy drawing my blood his opinion on fasting for the 1 hour. He told me some doctors say do it, some say don't, but in his opinion he thinks we should for 8 hours.
I fasted and failed. My dr told me after the fact to eat like peanut butter on toast, something small and filing. But, since I didn't pass I needed to do the 3 hr and I passed that was starving after to the point I was like sick. I am sure you will do just fine. This was the first I have failed as well, and I have done it 5 other times.
