Story of my life. When it rains it pours apparently for me! Now I have to take the 3 hour test. Anyone else with me?

Looks like I will take the dreadful 3 hour on Wednesday. I have my 2 week appt. with OB on Tues. and I also see the Endocrinologist on Wednesday for my thyroid so I will have to tell her about my glucose test as well.At least I can see the same dr. and kill 2 birds with one stone. Fun, Fun, specialsts galore this pregnancy. I also have high blood pressure. Going to talk to my OB today about an induction date. Looks like sooner than later I will likely be induced. My doctor joked with me and said she is going to pinch him when he comes out for all the trouble he is giving me.

Good luck with the big test. I took my 1 hour test last Monday and haven't heard anything so I assume I passed? I have an OB appointment tomorrow so I guess I will know for certain then.

Boo Sorry you have to take the longer test.

I am surprised your doc didn't tell you that you were RIGHT on the line. Chances are that you will pass your 3-hour. The cut off is generally 140, although some docs like to use 135 (which I am guessing yours does).

But I don't blame you for not wanting to give up carbs. They are awesome. Lol.

Man, I'm so sorry you have to worry about this on top of everything else that you're dealing with it! I really hope you pass the three hour!

My dr. told me 129 is the cut off now and that it use to be a few years ago 139...but they changed it?

Seems like doctors' offices keep lowering the acceptable limits for a lot of tests (cholesterol is what comes to mind). I know GD can be serious but it seems like they are just lowering that upper limit for no reason. If it was me I'd refuse the 3 hour and call myself good! But then I'm a stubborn person too so that's probably just my stubbornness showing. Hehe.
