Did you pass the 3 hour one?

If you had gestational diabetes, how was it treated?

Did you have to be induced?

Did you have a big baby?

Did you have diabetes after you had the baby or did it go away?

I failed the one hour but passed the 3 hour. With my second pregnancy my doctor ordered a 2 hour 9 need. She said it was more accurate.

I failed the one hour.
Passed the three.
MOST people will pass the three, but if you don't, you will modify your diet until delivery

I heard that was common. I am taking the 3 hour one on Wed.

Ironically, the 2 I fasted for, I passed and the 2 I didn't fast for I failed. I then went on to pass both 3 hours tests.

I tell ladies to fast for the 1 hour, which is better than the ridiculous 12+ hour fast.

I failed the 1 hr and passed the 3 hour one. I gained a lot during my pregnancy, was induced after my water broke, and she was 8.0 lbs. I never had diabetes but I still have high blood sugar 3 years later (but I had this before pregnancy too and since childhood).
