A Dreaded Phone Call

Was out and about with DH this afternoon, and when I saw my caller ID I knew what it was about. DR's office calling to tell my I had failed my GD test :(. They want me to take the 3 hour test, I will have to call in the morning to see about the three day diet that I have to follow before the test. My iron was fine, which never has been before, so that was a plus! I just hope that I pass the three hour test.

Good note on the iron though!

Boo! I hope your 3 hour goes OK.

I failed my 1 hour with #3 (never failed before) but I passed the 3 hour.

I'm glad the iron was good, and hope your 3 hr test goes well. I didn't know there was a three day diet involved... What's that about?

I swear they have changed the limits on the one hour, because it seems like everyone is failing nowadays. And people who have previously always passed too. Well that sucks - but yay for good iron!

I basically eat as I normally would but add more carbs. The nurse gave me two lists, one of grain choices and one of fruit choices. I have to choose one from each list to add to what I would normally eat each of the three days. I guess they want to overload your system beforehand to make it the worst case scenario.

Whew, I'm thinking pregnancy and limiting food.... Not happening. Or even worse weird foods. Sounds ok to me. I hope it goes well.

Hope it goes well! They actually had me drink my drink and stay at the midwives office and they took my blood at 1 hour and 2 hours...I don't remember doing it that way before, but maybe it increases the chance of passing.

Bummer! Good luck with the 3 hr. I had to do it with DS1 and passed. Never had me do a special diet though. That seems a but odd to me.
