So I "passed" my 1 hour glucose test a month or so ago. Well, I considered it passing. The doctor calls it borderline. I was a 139. 140 is the cutoff. But he went on and on about how in other parts of the world 130 is the cutoff. So if I would have gone to a different doctor I would have failed. So they said I had to retake the 1 hour test later in pregnancy. Well, I did yesterday and this time I freakin failed. 148. Are you kidding me?!! So now I have to do the 3 hour.

I know, I know, not a huge deal. Certainly not the end of the world. But man am I pissy about it. I am tired of drinking that crappy surgary drink and sitting in a lab waiting to get stabbed (poked, lol) with a needle.

I guess now I need to find a doctor that says 150 is the cutoff. Just kidding

I feel better now that I got that out.

lol i don't get if you are borderline why they'd even make you take it again. my vote is they wanna torture you. Hopefully the retake is your last and final time esp. drinking that nasty stuff. Although i admit that orange color one isn't to bad when its ice cold. with this pregnancy i had the red one(YUCK times a million), i assume its fruit punch

That 3 hour one is a LOT sweeter than the 1 hour!!! The after taste is NASTY and I had the fruit punch both times. The orange makes me sick.

Ugh! How annoying! I had to take the one hour twice AND the three hour twice. The first time I failed the 1 hour by one number, so he had me take the 3 hour. I passed the 3 hour, but my fasting number was one over the cutoff. So, 1 hour test again and I passed but was one number under the cutoff... SO, he made me take the three hour again and I finally, officially passed with flying colors! I think he was trying to get me to fail!

I hope you pass the three hour test!

I guess I got lucky. My OB's cut off is 140 and I squeaked by with 138 and didn't have to retake. UGH.. .that sucks...

I feel your pain!
I got a 136 for the one hour and my doc's. consider anything below 135 passing. I threw a fit about taking the 3 hour, when I did take it my sugars were completely normal
Glad this is my last baby as I would refuse the test completely if it weren't.

Hopefully you pass with no issues! How frustrating! Or just keep postponing the test until you go into labor
