pregnant w #3; failed 1-hour gluc test
had lots of stress; not sleeping; iron levels really low; poor diet for wks-from stress & no sleep?
told to take 3-hour test
uterus measures great at 28w
only gained 10 lbs
had 2 normal, 7lb babies, no complications, born before due dates
I’m out of whack, so I don’t trust failed result. Glucose drink=bad reaction & don’t want to flood my system after fasting for 3-hour test. Fasting=vomit, making test invalid. I will not "check sugar and shoot insulin" as a "just in case" treatment. Scheduled diet won’t work. I eat when hungry. If I eat on a schedule, it makes me sick. I cannot eat breakfast-makes me vomit.
DRs differing opinions-
fast or no fast for test
disagree on "normal" range
differ on treatments, if any
no proof that ANY treatment actually has real affect on baby at birth.

Sound like you are over thinking this. Diabetes or Gestational Diabetes is nothing to mess around with. Every pregnancy is different. The next test will comrirm if you have it or not. You will have to force yourself to eat better. FOR THE BABY, If for know one else.
