I opted for it this time because I am 27 and I was already overweight when becoming pregnant this time. Luckily, my OB is awesome. I wasn't going to do the test fasting anyways, but I asked his thoughts on it. He said that the GD test is not designed to be completed fasting and to eat normally that day (of course no donuts for breakfast or anything lol). He went on to discuss that we wouldn't normally starve ourselves during pregnancy and then eat a pound of sugar and sit still for an hour, so the fasting test is not a good indicator of how our bodies metabolize glucose.
*Shew, sigh of relief!*
Despite how realistic he is about it, I am still a tad worried. It's weird how this is my 3rd baby and the littlest things are worrying more. I haven't ever failed the test before (with my 1st I did it fasting and it made me incredibly sick, and with my 2nd I did NOT fast which was much better), but I can't help but be a little nervous.
