Dang it.

Just got a call from the Dr's office. I failed my 1 hour glucose test Sad I have never failed a glucose test before! I have to go and do a 2 hour test now.

Poop on a stick. DH has diabetes so he is all worried that I am going to have it now too :rolleyes: Hopefully I can pass the 2 hour!

You make me laugh...not failing the test but your comments...poop on a stick Smile You are cute! I really hope you pass the test. If you do end up with Gestational Diabetes it seems overwhelming at first but I am finding it more and more easier to deal with. I just miss some of the treats when we are out and camping. But for the most part I eat things I enjoy and it is alot of food. Good luck!!

Awww man! That stinks, but hopefully it's a glitch & you can pass the 2 hour. Reading any good books lately?

At least your do-over is only 2 hours... mine was 4! They drew blood four times, twice out of each arm and that crap hurts! I swear I hate that test... and watch everything will come back totally normal, just like mine did! They're out to torture pregnant women...

Sandra, I'm sure you'll be fine! From my totally non-scientific research (lurking on other forums) it seems that the pass rate on the 2 hour/3 hour is MUCH higher than the 1 hour. Good luck and kup!

Hope you pass the two hour one. Was it mandatory that you take it or could you have opted out of it. I have decided to opt out of this one, I hate the taste of that stupid orange drink and I haven't had any issues with any of them in the past so my doctor said I can opt out if I want Smile

Oh man! I always worry about failing the 1 hour! i am sorry that you failed it, I bet just by a hair too! And you will pass the 2 hour, but who wants to go through that???
I am sending you some good passing vibes!

DH came home for lunch and pricked my finger to check my blood sugar. My numbers were fine, and I had just eaten a bunch of licorice half an hour earlier, so I'm sure I'll be fine :rolleyes:

Just have to sit through that darn test still.
