Melissa - I failed the 3-hour test, too.
That was at 20 weeks. I'm 30 weeks now and things are going super well. My doctor even said that I should teach a class to gestational diabetics on how to manage it. I laughed and said that I'm really not doing much differently.
I do occasionally have a high number, but I'm usually good at knowing what caused it and then not eating that food -- or too much of that food -- again.
I am on a very small dose of glyburide every night to control my fasting numbers. They were consistantly 3-4 points over my limit. I tried everything I could to change how they were, but nothing worked. The pills help tremendously!
I even ate a complete Thanksgiving dinner and it didn't spike my numbers!!!
I eat an apple, though, and I'm super high...
