Oh my word. I downed the lovely orange drink and I'm waiting for my blood draw at the 1 hour mark. So gross :-( I feel icky already. I had GD with both of my daughters so I'm sure I'll have it with this one too. Does anyone remember what the cutoff is to pass the 1hr? I want to say like 130 or 140 maybe? I'm going to prick my finger with my meter for the heck of it to see what I come up with after an hour.
Oh I can't remember but good luck! I had GD too, so really not looking forward to the test. I feel like I barely had it last time, so I'm hoping by some miracle I can pass it this time. Unfortunately, my OB goes straight to having everyone do the 3 hour. What a pain!
Cassie, wife to Andrew, mommy to Sophia and expecting a baby boy in February!
Ha...well we will see how my results from the doctor come back, but I'm going to assume this was an epic fail! My finger prick came back at 170 after 1 hour. I'm not sure how it compares to an actual blood draw from the vein, but that's way too high to pass. Grrrreaaaat.
Awe man. Well I guess the only silver lining is not having to do the 3 hour test. Blah!
Speaking of the test. I am going to ask my dr about alternatives to that crappy soda drink. I hated it and back then I use to drink sugary soda. I think I will barf it up and they will make me drink more. I'm going to see if they will let me sub the Naked Red Machine as it's the same grams of sugar.
Well despite your own readings I hope it turns out ok! ((HUGS))
