I failed my 1 hour last time and ad to do the 3 hour. The worst part about it is that it's boring. I passed all of the sticks up until the last one. I failed by just a few points. They said I didn't officially have GD, but I was considered borderline. I wasn't up on the hardcore GD diet, but they did give me a list of foods to avoid and told me to limit carbs in general (hard bc I am a carb junkie!). They said it was just precautionary to make sure I didn't end up with a giant baby. I was good about doing what I was told and DD was 7 lbs, 3 oz. I have a strong family history of diabetes, so my risk of GD is increased even though I am not overweight and haven't gained too much. I kid of expect to fail again. I will find out soon. My 1 hr is 2 weeks from Friday.

In all likelihood, you'll pass the 3 hr. Just wanted you to hear from someone who did fail that it isn't a super huge deal. Annoying, yeah, but manageable. Good luck! Hope you pass with flying colors!
