It was my understandIng that most women usually do a 1-hour glucose challenge, then a 3-hour challenge if the first one is failed. However my doctor prescribed a single 2-hour test. Anyone else heard of this? Thanks!

I did the one hour test last week. I won't find out my results until my next doctors appointment in a couple weeks, so who knows, I may have to do a 2 or three hour test if I failed. But I doubt I failed. Good luck!

Yep, I did that a couple of weeks ago. My doctor doesn't trust the 1 hour test since it gives a lot of false positives and he feels that it's an arduous process to send me back then for a three hour test.

He likes the two hour test because it includes fasting and he doesn't re-test after that, whatever the outcome. I had to start fasting the night before and my appointment was at 7:30am. I had to drink a disgusting orange drink and I had my blood taken three times. (Once before drinking the drink and twice after).
