Preparing for my 3 hour gd test

According to my doctor, the only thing I need to do in order to prepare this thing on friday is fasting after midnight but when I looked online I read that I need to add a piece of bread to each meal. Did anyone have to do anything special in order to prepare?

I didnt really do anything major, just drank more water and cut down on the sweets a little. ate more fresh veggies. and of course the dang fasting after midnight. ugh

I wouldn't do anything different meal wise because you really want the test results to represent your reality, not a diet adopted to skew the results.

My instructions said to eat normally throughout the day, but avoid sugary foods....maybe that because mine is later in the afternoon?? (around 3:30pm) I mean they cant expect me not to eat all day lol

Thanks ladies. I'll just eat like I usually do so I get the best results.
I can't even have water during the fasting period?

I would call. Most practitioners allow you to drink water.

It went okay. I won't get the results till probably Monday. I didn't feel as bad as I thought I would. I mean I felt pretty crappy during the whole thing but I pretty much just came home and slept after that.
