Around this time you may have your glucose screening test to test for Gestational Diabetes. Typically, you are asked to fast (not eat) and then consume a set amount of sugar. Exactly one hour later, your midwife or doctor will draw your blood to check your glucose levels. If you "fail" your first test, try not to worry. The first test usually has a high false-positive, meaning you may test positive for Gestational Diabetes and not actually have it. This would mean you need to go in for a three-hour glucose test which is more accurate, but more inconvenient so they don't recommend every person do it.
