I failed my GD test by 11 friggin points! I have to go take the 3 hour on January 9th. I am not looking forward to not eating until it's over with. My master plan? Eat at 1155 the night before LOL (she said I can't eat past midnight). DH said just drink more water - that cutting soda out of my diet will help. I'm thinking - it might help, but it's not going to affect the test since I can't drink it ANYWAY.
How is everyone's weight doing? My doc appt on Wednesday showed me down 3 lbs, so in total I've lost 17 1/2 lbs since pre pregnancy. She didn't seem concerned, she said it was fine since the baby was still fine. I honestly think that 3 lbs is a mixture of still having m/s and drinking so much friggin water.
Oh no, sorry you failed. Well hopefully you pass the 3 hour! Sounds like a pain in the butt though.
If you like soda, but need to drink more water you can try those La Croix drinks. I like them. They don't have any sugar. I'm not sure that it will help with the test though. But soda dehydrates you anyway and I know you need to stay hydrated girl!
Oh and about the weight. I lost about 5-7 lbs at the beginning of my pregnancy due to M/S and having an upper respiratory infection. But I'm finally starting to gain. Today I weighed about 8 lbs more than my pre-pregnancy weight and 6 of those lbs have come just in the last 2 weeks.
Sorry you have to do the three hour test, that stinks-hopefully you pass it. I think my weight is about the same as prepregnancy, I think I gained a few pounds initially, but I lost 2 1/2 at the last appt. so I am not going up much yet-I had lousy appetite between m/s and being plain old sick. However, I predict I will be gaining a lot over the holidays, lol!
My weight is completely out of control I am even too embarrassed to say how much. I'm worried I will fail the test as well. I was drinking soda because I craved it but realized it might be dehydrating me so I'm drinking tons more water because of it and because of the braxton hicks I was having. Since Thursday I haven't had one, so I guess it was true. What I have been doing is drinking some seltzer water when I really get an urge for soda, it works.
Sorry you have to now take the 3 hour. Hopefully you pass it
Sorry you have to do the 3 hr....that's a pain! The good news is that I think it's very hopeful that you only failed it by 11 points. I have read that most of the women who fail the 1 hr pass the 3 hr, so your odds are very good. I can't remember what they are looking for with the 1 hr. Maybe under 140? To put it in perspective, my result was 211! So if they are looking for under 140 and you got around 151, that sounds very encouraging to me. Sorry you have to go through the 3 hr ordeal though. That stinks.
I haven't weighed myself since my appt last Monday, but as of last Monday I was up a total of 5 lbs since my last appt, and 3 lbs up from my starting weight. I'm wondering what is going to happen with my weight because with T I think I remember that I only gained about 8 lbs after I went on the GD diet, but I had gained 13 before that, so I gained a total of 21. Would we weird to only gain another 8 this time because that would only put me up 11 lbs for the whole pregnancy. But who knows what will happen this time around.

Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
Aw man, i'm sorry you failed. I hope the 3 hour goes easy on you. I haven't had the one hour yet as my dr will schedule it at my next appt on Jan 2nd...not looking forward to that at all.
As for weight, I'm up about 10-12lbs total at my last appt.. I am not happy about that at all, but I guess if you look at in the sense that i'm 23 weeks pregnant it seems alright. Thanksgiving killed me on weight and I fear that Christmas will too. I know all the weight gain is because I've had no morning sickness this time like I did with DS and i'm not walking like I was with DS(we lived in FL and walked DSS to and from school almost everyday.) Guess I just have a lot of work ahead of me once baby is here. DH thinks everything is fine and that I look good so I guess i'll take his word for it.
I have my one hour in a little over a week. I failed my first with DS though, the 3 hour test stinks! I hope you pass it. As for my weight, is it bad that I'm not even paying attention? I gained a ton at my last appt and my MW wants me to be careful about it since I want a VBAC, but I just can't bring myself to worry too much about it.
Ugh, my weight is ridiculous!! Ive gained 21lbs already!!! With my first 2 I gained 60lbs with each and lost most of it at birth. With my 3rd I lost 40lbs during and another 20 more at birth. Looks like ill be packing it on with this one! =\ Im just hoping it comes off easy like the others!
