Well, a little history for you. This is my third pregnancy but first with GD. I've had to take the 3 hour test with all pregnancies and barely passed it with my last one. Needless to say, I failed this time. I haven't talked with my dr yet, but the lab tech told me my numbers and well, they weren't good. I failed the 1 hour and the 3 hour. Anyway, I'm an RN and know a little about diabetes, but I have a lot to learn and will take any advice. I'll set up an appointment with the educator when my doc calls. He took his son to Italy for graduation and will be back Friday. I just wanted to say hello. I'm sure I'll have a lot of questions.
Sorry you didn't pass, but don't let it stress you out. I was really emotional when I first got diagnosed with GD during my first pregnancy....stressed, confused, not sure what I did wrong that made me get GD.....anyway, while it's a pain, it's not that bad and it encourages you to eat better...which in turn will make you feel better. So it really can be a positive thing if you look at it with that kind of attitude.
It takes awhile to learn how your body will react to certain things.....A piece of white toast vs. a piece of 100% whole grain toast can make all the difference. And a short walk after dinners can help a lot too.
