I've never had to take the test because I have diabetes ALL the time.
My sister failed the 1hr, then passed the 3hr and still had a 9lb 13oz baby. With her next baby, she passed the 1hr and her baby was over 10lbs. They told her after, that she probably had GD the entire time.
I have an aunt who had GD with all 4 of her pregnancies. She ended up taking insulin and her kids were all under 8lbs. The good thing about GD, is that even if you have it, it goes away after birth and then you can celebrate by eating tons of carbs.
