Just got the call that I failed my one hour glucose test. Cut off was 140 and I was 153. I had a feeling I wouldn't pass it.

I go in tomorrow for my three hour. I'm not looking too far ahead yet, just dreading sitting in that tiny, crowded, windowless waiting room for a full three hours. It drove me nuts being there just for an hour. Blah

I'm sorry. When I went with my friend the other day we left the office to go for walks in between draws. It made time go by a little quicker.

I'm pretty sure they make you stay there where they can keep an eye on you. It doesn't help that I have to be fasting and there's a nice snack shop directly across from the lab. lol

I went to the store and bought a new paperback book to read for tomorrow. Hopefully that will make the time go by a little faster.

I did my 3hour today and it wasn't too bad. I brought my Nintendo DS and some thank you cards I needed to send out to keep me busy. It helped that every hour I had to go and give blood, so it broke up the time. I had to stay in the lab, which is next door to the doctor's office, and they had a recliner and some magazines. But I still don't have my results and they never told me what my original score was.
Fingers crossed, GOOD LUCK!
Bring plenty to do.

The way the nurse explained it to me was I have to fast after midnight tonight.

Then tomorrow I go in and get my blood drawn, then drink the lovely orange stuff (only more this time, yay). Then I wait. After 1 hour they draw my blood, then again after 2 hours they draw my blood again, and after three hours they draw my blood yet again.


When I had the one hour I just had to go in and drink the orange drink and wait for one hour. Then they drew my blood and I was on my way.

I hope everything goes well. Isn't it amazing when that when they TELL you not to eat, you're hungry, but, you'd never even think of eating had they not said anything?!?!?!?! I've taken the long one (not with this PG) and it was fine. It's long. Bring a book I'll be thinking of you!

I greatly despised the GTT; I had gestational diabetes with my first pregnancy. My doctor neglected to have me tested until 30 weeks even though I had complained for months of every classic symptom - severe exhaustion, peeing like crazy, dry mouth, thirst etc etc. My 1 hour came back at 16.9 (mmol - Canada) which works out to be about 304 mg!

I was immediately booked for the 3 hour within days (I forget my result, but it was insanely high), admitted to the hospital & placed on a strict bed rest when I quickly developed pre-eclampsia.

Gestational diabetes can be controlled with a change in your diet - sometimes a drastic one, but the other thing to remember is try to drop as much sodium from your diet as well. Read labels like crazy.

Best of luck!
