How many of you failed either of the glucose tests (1hr or 3hr)?

I just found out today that I failed the 3 hr one. How did you deal with it?

  • I did every pregnancy. Finally for the 4th and 5th I just told them look I already know hows it gonna go so lets just not beat around the bush. I was nervous about it, the stuff makes me VIOLENTLY ill (not over stating this). The 3 hr I always ended up borderline, and so with 4th and 5th I just voluntarily pricked my finger and watched my diet.

  • I failed my 1 hour, and passed my 3 hour but not by much. They considered me borderline diabetic, and the only things that happened was I gained more weight than necessary and dd was over 9lbs.

  • I failed my 1hr passed my 3hr but not by much. They too considered me borderline and I retained massive amounts of fluid at the end but my son was only 7lbs 2oz.

  • I failed the one hr but passed the 3 hr. My friend failed the 3 hr and they put her on a diet where she didn't eat as much sugar and carbs. She ended up only gaining 6 lbs. her whole pregnancy!

  • Yikes! I feel so bad for anyone who has to take this test. The one hour one wasn't so bad. The 3 hr one was pushing it. My doc didn't tell me my exact numbers, just that I failed it. As of today my feet started to get puffy and it makes me nervous. I know that gestational diabetes is dangerous to the baby and causes them to gain more weight than normal. my little girl isn't so little right now...pushing 4 lbs at 32 weeks.

    I was just curious to hear how others dealt with it. thanks

  • ugh, I'm so jealous. I wish that was all I've gained. my doc says I'm within normal limits. it's still too much for me tho. oh well. at least this is almost over.
