I failed my test which means I will be going next week for the 3hour test..I really hope Its ok and I dont have GD!
That sucks, I did too! How much over were you? I was only over the cutoff by 3 points and my 3 hour came back fine.
Fingers crossed for tomorrow!
Fingers crossed for you! I will say that I failed 3 out of my 7 one hour GD tests and always passed the 3 hour.
I am sorry that you failed. I really hope that you pass your 3 hour test.
Abby & Erica - did you both fast prior? My test is Monday and doc said I didn't need to fast but I've heard you are more likely to fail if you don't
I didn't before the 1 hour test.
I recommend fasting. I didn't with DD1, had to take the 3 hr. Fasted for yesterdays with DD2 and passed. Maybe if you only eat protein you'd be ok, but I'm quite a carb eater, so I fasted to be sure.
They didn't tell me by how Much but I will ask on tuesday its my apt.. I just hate needles.. lol
and They didnt tell me to fast either so I think thats why I failed...but I guess I can do the 3hr test on tuesday and hopefully pass..
I was told I didn't "need" to fast. But I read alot online from women who had OJ and cereal before and failed. I ate breakfast and coffee before my 1st one, then fasted this time just to see if it did anything. I think it's kinda BS that they don't have better guidelines on that test. I mean results from someone who fasts and someone who eats are completely different! Shouldn't there be a more scientific protocol than that????
I agree..and you know what gets me upset some people are like"well you should have known you had to fast no wonder you failed" Im like first of all I didn't get this far with my 1st pregnancy in 2007 and 2nd the nurse who did the lab order for the doctor never told me I had to fast nor was it anywhere on the lab form and the lab didn't ask me if I had fasted...but either way Im getting it done on tuesday and hopefully all is Good, If not then Im not the first pregnant woman to go thru it and Im sure I can deal with it and my baby will be good!! thank ladies you all have been awesome!!
Sorry you failed! Fingers crossed for tomorrow! I bet you pass. My doc said to fast 1 hour before. Instead I just got up early in the morning and took the test, so I hadn't eaten anything since about 7p the night before. But I barely passed, so who knows?
I hope you pass the second time around!
I failed by ONE POINT this time. When I do the 3 hour I won't have eaten for two hours so we'll see what happens. I feel your pain. Technically, I had GD with my daughter, but I was able to control it so easily with diet that I know my doctors were just being super strict. Not to mention the fact that a woman I work with, who is quite a bit larger weight-wise than I am, got more allowances with her blood sugar numbers than I did. For meals, she got 130 and I could only have 120. I think doctors are super careful with GD because it can become a major issue if you are not careful, even if you are only border line. Don't worry...the diet is simple and we only have a few months to go.
