  • Its a blood glucose test. Yes. I failed the 1 hr test and had to do the 3 hr. I passed that one.

  • I thought the blood glucose tests were standards during pregnancy now to check for GD? I had to do the 1 hour one and everyone I know that's had a baby had to take it, also. I almost threw up lol. I can't handle that much sugar very easily.

  • no this was something different. I will do the glucose test at my next dr's apt. I just drank something really sugary to see if i could get the baby to move since I haven't felt her much

  • I've only heard of the glucose test. But drinking something sugary I've never heard of.. normally if you don't feel the baby move much you can drink orange juice and lay on your left side for a while and if that doesn't help the dr will send you to get monitored to make sure everything is ok with the baby.

  • I did the 1 hour and the 3 hour....I passed each one :)
    That sugary stuff made me want to vomit though.
