I can totally relate. I failed my 1hr GTT by 1 point. I have to go back and get the 3hr test done. Me without caffeine for that long will not be a friendly thing. I feel bad for the person that chooses to make me mad that day (jk) :-)

Why are they making you fast for the 1hr? I've only heard of fasting for the 3hr. I hope the morning went by quick for you and you're done with that nasty "cola"!

I didn't have to fast for the 1hr when I was pregnant with DS, either. I guess all docs are different.

I hope it went well!!!!

Why couldn't you drink water???
I remember when I did my test for DD it about killed me just because I was soooo hungry and I don't enjoy eating anything bland enough (like dry toast or what have you) so I just didn't eat until after the test lol
