  • i had to do boht. my first came back high, but my second was normal. dont worry about it too much, you could be fine. the 3 hour test sucked for me bc the peopkle there couldnt do a blood draw if thier life depended on it!! if you have that problem, dont be afraid to ask for someone else!

  • i just did the three hour test last week and it came back normal

    just remember you'll be at the place for a long time and they dont let you leave- bring a book and something else entertaining. you may need a ride home unless you are within walking distance of somewhere to eat. you'll be hungry

  • yup this is my second baby, with my first one everything was i guess ideal and with my second one it was high so we did a three hour one and i kinda freaked out i was really scared but it turned out that everything was ok the worst part was that it made me really tired and my arms got pretty sore (they took blood in both arms) hopefully things work out for you good luck!
