I had Gestational Diabetes and was insulin dependent with my 1st pregnancy. I am 16 weeks with my 2nd and I just had a 1 hour glucose screening. It came back slightly elevated and I now have to have a 3 hour test done. Has anyone had an elevated 1 hour test and then had a normal 3 hour test? I know I will have to have another 1 hour test done at 28 weeks even if this 3 hour test comes back normal. Anyone's experience with this would be appreciated.

  • I had the one hour test and it came out a little high with my first child. I went in for the three hour test and it still came out a little high. For me one out of three was high so I only had to watch what I ate (avoiding too much carbohydrates). I got tested again after my pregnancy, only a blood test, and I was fine in fact my blood sugar was a little too low. I just hope the same doesn't happen with this baby. My doctor told me it's more of a possibility but it doesn't mean it will happen a second time.

  • I had to do the retest. I was very careful and watched what I ate and the 3 hour went ok. I have no idea if my watching what I ate had anything to do with it or not...
