What were your failed 1 hour numbers?
 
Hi, Sadly, I'm new here but hopefully I will not be staying. I am 28 weeks and this is my 2nd pregnancy (I did not have GD w/ the first).

I took my 1 hour last week and I failed the test with 139 as my number. My doctor uses 130 (or 135, honestly I was in shock when they told me I failed) as the the cut off. I know the ADA and many other places use 140 as the cut off. Tomorrow I have my 3 hour test and I am slightly concerned and anxious about it. I eat healthy, but aside from running after my toddler I don't exercise. In general, I am a healthy weight and healthy individual (I know diabetes does not discriminate).

I'm curious, for those of you who are already diagnosed with GD what were your 1 hour results? Thanks.

I failed with a 205 and my doctor completely skipped the 3hr for me and went straight to diagnosing me. She uses a cut off of 140.

With my first pregnancy, I failed the one hour with a 157...At the three hour, the draw at two hours was actually higher than after one hour....

With my second pregnancy, I failed the one hour with a 180. Just did that today, and am hoping I don't have to take the three hour.

I'm in my twenties, healthy weight prepregnancy, exercise, eat healthy (basically a GD diet) all the time even when not pregnant.....no diabetes in my family, no other GD in my family history, no genetic or racial predispositions......So I agree, GD doesn't discriminate, lol!

My midwife screens with the 3-hour, so I never took a 1-hour. My failing number was at the 2-hour mark with something in the 170s. I forget.

One piece of advice: Between the blood draws get up and walk around a little, or walk up and down the stairs. I don't think this is "cheating" because you would normally be moving around during the day (especially with a toddler!) burning up sugar, so it will be more representative of normal for you. If you just sit there the sugar will stay in your blood. That's what I did and I failed. :(

Good luck!!

I failed my 1 hour with a 220, and my doctor also skipped the 3 hour and sent me straight to a diabetes educator. I hope you don't have GD. Good luck!!

185. Took 3 hour and failed miserably. I am controlling GD with diet and exercise. I've got a toddler running around too! :) Try not to stress too much.. it will be ok. Enjoy your pregnancy!!

I took the 1 hour at 12 weeks and failed hard core with a 259. :(
Skipped the 3 hour. Was put on Insulin at week 16. My fasting numbers and breakfast are always so so high. I can pretty much eat ANYTHING for Lunch and Dinner and never have a reading over 120.

I take 36 units of Insulin at night and my fasting numbers are just under 100.

My doc ordered the 3 hour, and my fasting number was 204, and after the sugar drink, an hour later, it was somewhere in the lower 300's. They put me on insulin shots immediately 3 times a day, and ended up increasing to 4 a day.

I was just about to come ask this! I failed my 1 hour test with my number being 162. I go on Wednesday for the 3 hour one. I took it last time and passed just by the skin of my teeth but my 1 hour number was lower last time also. I just have this feeling in the pit of my stomach that I'm not passing this time.

191, and didnt do a 3hr test. They went straight to treatments. I see a nutritionist next Thursday to discuss my plan of action.
