When did u have your surgery? Congrats to you! If you had GB u can't take the drink the others are talking about your Doc is wrong, they will either have u do the 2 or 3 hour test. I had the DS and I have to do the 2 hour testing where I fast and they take my blood, I go eat and come back in 2 hours and they take more blood.

O/T did you have children b4 your GB? I would love to chat with you, your the 1st Bariatric surgery person i have met on Just Mommies, I keep saying they need a board especially for those who get pregnant during that weight lost window you know the b4 18 month post op.

And I'm not quite sure how to refuse.. LOL. The optional screenings were no big deal but isn't this one kind of a mandatory test?
Hugs to you Rachel, I wish I lived near you bc I would go with you. I know how you feel about needles and fainting is NO JOKE. I would talk to your Dr and express your concerns, maybe there is an alternative to the blood work. I'm getting it done bc diabetes run in my family and I've already been a little lax in this pregnancy so i want to just try and get back on track.
