I have heard lots of time that failing the one hour does not mean you'll fail the 3 hour. Perhaps getting a good count after fasting will help. Sucks you have to do it but best of luck. Did you have GD with your other 2?

ugh, what a bummer. Almost every mom in my last DDC that failed the one hour ended up passing the three hour. I'm sorry you have to even take the test but I hope you pass too!

Oh man, so sorry. I'm freaked out just thinking about the 3 hr test. I hope I pass the one hour one. I take it in mid February.

Do you know what your number was? Just curious.

There's a 1 hour, 2 hour, and 3 hour test. It just depends on your doc's preference as to which ones you do. Most around here do the 1 hour and if you fail they do the 3 hour. Some start with the 2 hour though.

That number doesn't make sense. Typically, if your blood sugar is over 140 but less than 200, you move on to the 3 hr test. If your blood sugar is over 200, you are automatically diagnosed with gestational diabetes. Some doctor's offices use a cut off of 135 or even 130.

The number is usually in mg/dL. The average normal blood glucose level in humans is about 100 mg/dL.

I failed the one hour with my son, but passed the 3 hour.

I did my one hour early this time, and I passed, but barely. they said anything over 7 means diabetes and I was 6. I am going back next week to do it again to double check and make sure, but like you I eat a lot of carbs so I am worried about failing

I failed the 1 hour with DS, but passed the 3 hour. They gave me the stuff to drink for the 1 hour for my next appointment that I believe is February 6th. Ugh, dreading it - especially because they've been telling me since the beginning of this pregnancy that I have slightly elevated sugar in my urine - so I am expecting to fail the 1 hour again I'll have to go to the hospital to do the 3 hour too and it's just such a pain...
