How long to fast for the 1 hr GD test?

I seem to remember my doctor saying to fast for a few hours or something like that before my 1 hour gestational diabetes test. I couldn't remember how long, so I called and asked. The receptionist asked a doctor there and they told me 12 hours.

The test is tomorrow at 3pm and the more I think about it the more 12 hours sounds wrong. I think it was only a few hours last pregnancy, and the only info I'm finding online is to fast for 12 hours for the 3 hour test. And the more I read about it the more confused I get with people saying to not fast at all, and others saying they fasted for 6 hours. My numbers last pregnancy were nice and low, so I would expect to pass it just fine this time too.
