    i just booked in for mine, apparently there is the glucose challenge test which is just an hour, and no need to fast. but there is another kind which she said is just called a glucose test and that is a two hour test which needs to be fasted for.

    Yep there are two different tests, usually you do the non-fasting one first and if the results indicate they'll make you do the second one.

    I loved the drink, but for some reason my blood pressure dropped heaps and I wound up in a hospital bed drinking litres of water until it got high enough for them to let me go home... I had a midwife appt after the tests & the pathology girls phoned the midwives to come & get me because I was so dizzy...
