    Default Just went to fail...

    my GD test. The high risk doctor wanted me to take the test at 20 weeks because of how severe it was with Jack. I have been tracking my levels the last few days and I know I will fail. My levels getting up in the morning were about 150. They should be 90. I took the test this morning and they drew my blood after one hour. I tested myself almost an hour later and my number was 190. So pretty safe to say my number was well over 200 when they drew my blood. I figured this would happen again, just didn't think so early. I only gained during my second trimester last time and then lost because of the diabetic diet in the 3rd tri. This time I have only gained 2 lbs and my 2nd tri is getting cut off. I will probably be below pre-preg when I deliver because of this and that scares me. The doctors kept saying that I shouldn't be hungry, but I felt like I was starving all the time while following the diet. My numbers were also still pretty high following the diet and taking insulin. I sure hope they work harder with me this time to make sure things are going right.

    I'm sorry about your test. I failed my one hour as well, took my three hour this past Wednesday. I hope they get you on a diet that keeps you full and keeps your sugar in line. I'm really not looking forward to hearing my results.

    Ugh.. Sorry to hear that, girl.. So have they officially said it or is it all based on your home testing? I, too, hope they work with you harder this time.. Hang in there!!!!

    I don't have the official results yet, but your blood sugar should be below 140 after one hour. If mine was 190 at 2 hours it is pretty safe to say it was ridiculous at one hour. It is what it is of course, I just wish pregnancies weren't so hard on me.
