So the doc office just called and I failed the test. I was at 140 and they want it under 130. I'm just so frustrated I don't know what else can go wrong and cause me more stress at this point. I mean seriously how can I gain only 9 lbs and possibly be diabetic? I called the hospital and they said just come in before 7 am tomorrow morning and I don't need an appointment for the 3 hour one. I know I may pass the 3 gr test but I'm just so frustrated at this point one more thing might just push me over the edge if it is possible.
I'm sorry for the added stress. Hopefully you will pass the 3 hr. test.
At my OB office they do two GD tests, one at the first appt. When I was pg with Brandon I failed my first test but I passed the 3 hr. test with flying colors.

I completely understand your frustration since I just went through the same thing... and went through it with my first pregnancy as well (and passed the 3 hour). I don't know if this will make you feel better or worse, but with my midwives, 140 is passing for the 1 hour test, so you would have passed by their standards. With that in mind, I think you'll pass the 3 hour with flying colors. The large majority of women who take the 3 hour pass it. I'm still waiting to hear my 3 hour results. I'm hoping that no news is good news at this point... my midwives sometimes do that, but usually they tell you whether or not to expect a call. Under 130 seems a little ambitious to me... most doctors/midwives consider passing to be somewhere between 135 and 140. I don't think you'll have a problem with the 3 hour. Just bring something to read and take yourself out some place nice to eat afterwards!
Bummer you have to do the 3 hr. If you were that close on the 1 hr, I bet you'll pass with flying colors on this one! Bring your laptop so you can surf PO while you wait.
I bet it will go just fine. 140 is the *actual* cutoff, but a lot of docs will send those with lower numbers for the 3 hour just to catch the (EXTREMELY FEW) that somehow pass the 1 hour.
Dont fret about it. I am VERY curious as to why they're having you do it tomorrow - you're supposed to "carb load" for 3 DAYS prior to taking the 3 hour test to make sure the results are accurate, Im not sure how you can do that when you got your 1 hour results today and have been told to take it tomorrow.
