    I have to have a glucose test tomorrow morning due to my high BMI, which will show if I have gestatial diabeties or not, has anyone else had this done? Did you get test results straight away?

    my doc told me to have basic blood test done for it, then if it was bad then do a full glocose test etc. but im fine. my bmi is slightly higher than normal. i did quit smoking last yr and found it hard to loose the weight. and ive got a large dermoid cyst (heavy) on my ovary.(well im partly blaming that.lol)

    I'm dreading mine I didn't have it last time & I doubt I will have this time either but I have low blood pressure and I get really faint if I do to much when I havent eaten but it's hard not to do anything with a 1yr old on the go!! My dad is driving me there though so hopefully I wi be fine!

    I've got to have this test, you fast from 10pm the night before, then have blood taken, they then give you a glucose drink, you wait or 2 hours and have another blood test.

    I Was told that they would only get in touch with me if the results were a concern. If the test was fine then I won't hear anything.

    Im not entirely sure, but think they tend to induce early as babies tend to be big if you have gd
