Oh no Sethsmummy, that doesn't sound fun! I'll be thinking of you! what does the test involve?

I'm actually really distressed. I am constantly thirsty, nothing I drink quenches my thirst. It's like torture. I know that sounds dramatic but I'm nearly I'm tears. I've my GTT on Friday, so not too long to go, but god know how I'm going to fast from water for 10 hours. I tried to talk to my OH about it, he's usually so supportive but he just doesn't understand how awful this is, he says I'm thinking about it too much and it's in my head. Sigh. One more day to go . . .

I've no idea yet hun i thought it was just a simple blood test, but midwive at antenatal said i need more than just a blood test.

oh no hun.. if i were you i would still drink water through your fast. like a lot of us said in your thread.. we've all been told we can drink water. Theres no way in hell they can expect you not to drink for that amount of time. I mean if i wasnt allowed to drink that would be around 13 hours from going to bed at night till the test is finished with. And there is no way in hell i would allow myself to go that long.. its just absurd. We can survive fine without food but water..we need especially when pregnant. xxxx

Ah good luck Hun! Nothing's ever easy is it I hope it's an easy enough test. So any tests so little time!

Thanks, yea I'm going to sip water I think, though I'm in too minds about it as I really don't want to scew my results. I'm convinced I have GD. Or if not then something else as this is very wrong. Yea god 13 hours is ridiculous, I'm actually angry that they told me no water lol, I want to phone them and go mad - but I think it's just because I'm so frustrated, and if extreme thirst is a symptom of what they're testing for its not very realistic is it!! Lol. Arghhh! Stupid people!

I would do anything to make this thirst stop.

seth - oh no, I hope everything turns out okay! Will be thinking of you, and hoping for good results!

Miwi - you were told no water?! That's very odd. I was told I could drink some water. I would definitely call and ask them about it. They even let me drink water during my test.

Firefly - congrats! Isn't it soooo exciting when you're feeling them move the first times? It's such a precious thing! Makes it all the more real, doesn't it?

It seems like forever ago I was standing in my bathroom staring at my pregnancy test, and trying not to jump up and down and shriek... lol I can't believe I only have around 7 weeks left! It's going to be both the fastest, and the longest weeks of my life!

MIWI: this has just been posted on another thread

I do glucose tolerance tests a lot on my patients - it generally involves

- early morning appt - fasting glucose blood test taken
- patient drinks either lucozade, powdered sugar or orange syrup - all of which have to be specific measurements of liquid.
- patient sits for 2hrs doing next to nothing. Can drink water but nothing else.
- glucose blood test taken after 2hrs.

Hope that helps! Xx


kalyrra: Thanks hun i am itching like nothing on earth right now and it is driving me insane!

i feel the same, apart from is took 10 tests for me to decide i actually believed i was pregnant And now im over half way there.. its insane! And you only have around 7 weeks left! man i cant wait to be counting that low numbers xxx

Im pretty sure I drank water during the GTT fasting. Miwi, I hope you get some answers either way. Being that thirsty sounds horrid.

Sethsmummy, I hope everything goes well at your appointment and the itching isn't anything serious. Just noticed you've hit double figures too, yay!!

I got my next appointments through. Consultant on Christmas eve (what should I expect from that appointment?) and 16 week scan on 29th December. I'll actually be 16+6 and I got a bit upset about it not being before Christmas but never mind!

Has anyone had their flu jab? I had one when I was preg with Toby and was booked in to have one today but there was something telling me not to. So weird. I'm not scared of needles, injections or the flu jab but something didn't feel quite right do I cancelled.
