My midwife screens with the 3-hour, so I never took a 1-hour. My failing number was at the 2-hour mark with something in the 170s. I forget.

One piece of advice: Between the blood draws get up and walk around a little, or walk up and down the stairs. I don't think this is "cheating" because you would normally be moving around during the day (especially with a toddler!) burning up sugar, so it will be more representative of normal for you. If you just sit there the sugar will stay in your blood. That's what I did and I failed.

Good luck!!
