My first one came back high.. Now I've got to go for the second one and i need to fast for it.. Has any one had the second one come back as normal? I'm a little nervous.. If this one comes back as high would that mean I've got gestational diabetes? Had anyone had that and how do you manage it?

 I am in the same boat.  Mine came in at 150.  I go tomorrow too.  I read that only 20% that fail the 1 hr go on to fail the 3 hr.  If it is high, then it is my understanding that yes, you would be diagnosed with GD.  Dr told me this morning that if so then all that is done is a low carb diet for the rest of the pregnancy.  Thats not so bad. But you really have to follow it because otherwise there are dangers for you & baby & insulin may be necessary.  Dont be nervous. You'll be just fine :)

I have GD. Once you get used to the finger pricks, it's not so bad. If you do end up with it, they will try to control it with diet, then meds if needed, and insulin is the worst case scenario.
