If you fail the one hour glucose test you have to take the 3 hour test to see if you have gestational diabetes as it can negatively affect you and your baby. I failed my one hour with my first pregnancy and passed the 3 hour. With this pregnancy they had me take the one hour in the first trimester also (as my DD was 9lbs 13oz) I again failed the one hour (though I found out I failed it by only 2 freaking points AFTER I took the three hour). I pass the three hour perfectly. I dreaded it, hated it.... no lying that drinking that stuff then being stuck sitting in an office for 3+ hours and having your blood drawn every hour sucks. Make sure you fast before your three hour, no mints, no gum, make sure you don't swallow toothpaste etc. Hopefully you pass, if not you'll likely be put on a special diet to control it.

I think she means two regular tests.

I had a one hour at 18 weeks (was supposed to be 15 weeks but they forgot) and then one at 28 weeks. They made me do it that way with Max too.

Usually it's because you have a family history or because you are overweight. It's really annoying IMO, especially since I've never had a bad result out of it.

I had the one hour at 11ish weeks, which i failed and had to do the three hour (which i passed)

And i have to do it again in January i believe. I think i had to do it because i have few family members with Diabeties though

I am very overweight and haven't had one yet. My doctor does the 1 hour test around 28 weeks pregnant and then the 3 hour test if you fail the 1 hour.

I won't get one until 28 weeks. I tried to get out of it and my doctor scolded me. I've never had issues before, he smartly replied with "You've never had THIS pregnancy before" He amuses me too much to be frustrating.

With my first I failed the 1 hour and passed the 3 hour. My MW says its common to fail the 1 hour with not having GD. My MW doesnt' do the glucose test, instead she just checks my urine at each appointment.

I have to do two regular one hour tests. I had to with DS also. The reasoning with me is that I'm Native American and they're at higher risk for diabetes, so it's just standard protocol. I remember with my first son that it bothered me way more in the first tri than the one at 28 weeks. I've never had to do the 3 hour test though...

I had GD With My Oldest Son.. So Then i Had to test 2 times with my younger boys.. With my Middle son I failed both 1 hr tests so then i had to go in to do 2 3hr tests one in the 1st tri and the 2nd was at 28wks.. With my Last Pregnancy I convinced my OB to just let me go and get the 3hr test in the 1st tri and at 28 wks since i knew I was going to Fail and he let me do it that way.. with this Pregnancy I went in at my 12wk visit and i had just gotten a sprite and potato skins chips out of the vending machine and drank and ate some when I went back they told me I was getting the 1hr test and I passed it.. I was Shocked lol So Now I go back at 29 wks to get my next 1hr I'm Hoping I pass that one as well.. I hate sticking myself 4 times a day
