I just drank my drink and now I'm waiting my hour. I hope I pass. I guess the good thing is there is free WIFI so time will hopefully fly by. I have had the lab paperwork for a week. I've just been putting it off.
How long does it usually take to get results back?
Thanks PrincessMom08 for my wonderful siggy!
Mine wasn't that bad. I was hoping I would pass too, but I didn't. And I passed the 3 hour. Same thing happened with my son. I got my results after the weekend on Monday. They should have yours by days end or tomorrow. I just wrote a post about GD and stuff and this Dr. Brewer....basically saying to take the results lightly. If you we're already a diabetic than it put's you in a different category, but if it's just GD it's fine. Before I even read this Dr. Brewer stuff, I had failed my first test by 6 points and my doc wasn't concerned. If I didn't want to take the 3 hour he didn't care. He said if I wanted I could take my A1C TEST and just minimize my sugars (empty calories basically) and that's it. But I took the 3 hour and my A1C. Passed and my A1C was lower than it ever was before pregnancy @ 5.1. So don't worry about it at all.
I did my 1hr test on Monday, and it sounds like my OB's office will only call if I failed. I start a new job on Thursday and the 3hr test would be hugely inconvenient, so I fasted the morning of the test with the hopes that it would maximize my chances of passing. I made sure to eat some peanut butter crackers as soon as I got back into my car and drank plenty of water... and overall it wasn't as bad as I had expected.
Good Luck. I hope you pass. I took my one hour on a Tuesday morning and had the results back by Wednesday afternoon, so hopefully your dr. is fast. I passed the one hour this pregnancy. I failed the one hour with Jackson and had to take the 3 hour test which was no fun but thankfully I passed.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
am I the only one that gets my one hour results immediately???? they check it right there with a finger prick. they also took a vile to send away to test for other things. but I get my GD numbers there.
It took couple days to get my result back. And oh, the only reason you should want to pass the test, is so you don't get GD!! I failed my test, and i had to go on a GD diet, and started insulin 2 nights ago!! Being on a diet, where you have to measure all your carb intakes, and no sugars is tough when you're pregnant!!!!!!!!!

I guess the real reason I don't want to fail is to have to sit in the lab for a the three hour one.
I did it this morning and have felt fine. I was thinking the drink would have made me feel yucky.
