? about 3 hr glucose test

Ok so I know that I have to start fasting tonight, but I was wondering do they allow you to drink water at all, tonight or tomorrow? My test starts at 8am.

Ya, water is good.

Good luck hun!! I've taken 3 glucose tests this pregnancy!! Failed the 1st 1hr so I took the 3hr. Then cause I'm measuring so big they tested me again with a 1hr. Luckily I passed it!

Huh, you guys get to drink water?? We're not allowed to drink water at all. Fasting is fasting, nothing is allowed. I hated that! Guess different places do things differently? :shrug:

We were allowed only water, since it is nutritionally empty.

Mine said drink all the water I wanted. They even went and got me a bottle at the hospital during the test.

I did a 2 hour fasting glucose test on Monday and I was told I couldn't even have water. Nothing to eat or drink after midnight.
