Hi I'm Amber, we are planning our first home birth 6th baby.

How was your glucose test done if you took one?

I've been seeing midwives in a hospital and now I'm switching to a home birth midwife. My hospital midwives wanted me to take a GTT at 16 weeks but I declined so they wanted some sugars at home for a couple of weeks. I took a trial test at home (done by me to check where I'm at) no asked for it but aftera protien lunch I waited two hours and then ate 80g of M&Ms (to equal 50g of sugar like the glucola) per-M&Ms blood sugar was 74, 1 hour after it was 112, and two hours after it was 84. So my thinking is most likely I don't have GD I will be doing a simialar test after a protien breakfast tomorrow with 10oz of purple grape juice to check again but have any of you done the glucose test with grape juice or something simialar?
