3 Hr Glucose - Boo!

Just got back from the OB. He says the ultrasound specialist recommended that I have the 3 hr glucose screening even though I passed the 1 hr test with flying colors.

SO, guess what I'll be doing Friday morning. Grrrrrr.

I'm sorry you have to do the 3 hr test. Why is the u/s specialist recommending it?

Why is the U/S tech recommending that you do the 3 hr if you passed the 1 hr with flying colors ?

My baby is measuring very big....above the 95th percentile. Guess they figure better safe than sorry.
