I took my one hour test yesterday and my number was 193. I had no idea what the numbers even meant etc... so I asked some questions and come to find out that that is a REALLY high number which kind of makes sense why my ob was so adament about me taking the 3 hour test first thing this morning. Let me tell you I still feel sick from that stuff. I was so dizzy and light-headed and ns. Are these bad signs? Anyone ever had such a high number with their one hour and pass the 3 hour?? I am so crossing my finger. I hope I hear about the results asap especially before the weekend.

That is a pretty high number. Mine was 150 something and I failed the 3 hr. I actually didn't even get to drink the stuff for the 3 hr because I failed the fasting number. I hope you get your results back quick!

Thanks SandKmommy for my siggy!

193 is high.. I think I had similar number when I did the 1 hour test.. But when I did the 3 hour test, I failed the 2nd blood draw and barely passed the 3rd blood draw.. In the end I did have GD.

I think it's normal.. I had those same feelings at my 6 week post partum GTT test, which I passed.. It was because my body wasn't use to so much sugar at once due to being on the GD diet for 3 months.. But when I took it when I was pregnant, I had no symptoms.

My 1 hour was 178 and because I was only 26 weeks at the time, my doctor asked me if I wanted to do the 3 hour or start testing my blood sugars. She said if I did the 3 hour now and passed, she'd still make me take it again in a few weeks. So I said I'd go ahead and start testing my blood sugars. I've really only had to cut out really high sugar stuff so far, so I'm OK with that.
Thank you, JaidynsMum for my awesome siggy!
