  • no but what if i dont... then i have to take the three hr testing.

  • I passed all 3 of mine! My best friend failed her first and had to do the 3hr test, she said it was awful! My mom failed the 1hr and 2hr when she was pregnant with my sister. She barely passed the 6hr test!

  • My Grandmother had gestational diabete's, and my first was a 10 pound baby, they assumed I may have it. So for my 2nd pregnancy they monitored it. It wasn't so bad, and I "passed" if that's what you're calling non-diabetic.

  • Yes, I did, and I have diabetes in my family--my paternal grandfather had diabetes Type I (he died from complications of it) and my father has Type II, controlled by diet and exercise. I passed it fine, but I hated chugging that flat orange soda stuff, though!

  • I failed it with all four pregnancies and had to do the 3 hour. The 3 hour is double the sugar in the same size drink - so more syrupy! Yuck! I always pass the 3 hour. This last time I opted to just check my blood sugar levels every day. So far this month they have been just fine and I am hoping my doctor tells me I can quit checking. I don't eat a lot of sugar when I am pregnant - it makes me sick. I am wondering if that is why I am always borderline with the first test. My body just isn't use to the sugar.

  • I failed the 1 hour with my first two pregnancies and had to do the 3 hour. I passed the 3 hour both times. With my third and fourth pregnancies I skipped the 1 hour and just did the 3 hour and I failed the 3 hour both times. I had to check my sugar levels 2-3 times a day and follow a low carb diet.

  • I took it, passed just fine. Tasted just fine, I just drank it like chugging a beer lol. The worst part was being bored for an hour LOL
