I took my 3 hour test this morning and the doctors office called and left me a message before I even finished the test. My fasting level was 117, and the cutoff is 120. So I did have to drink the stupid drink. I don't know what the official lab results were but I brought my own meter to test so I wouldn't have to wait the weekend for results. My meter read 225 after the first hour, 167 after the second, and 87 after the third. My OB said that if any number is above 200, it is an automatic failure.

So now I have to make an appointment with the dietitian for next week, pick up a new meter and supplies and then follow up with my OB a week and a half.

I'm sorry sweetie.. I know having GD is not vary fun..

I also wanted to say, it was vary smart of you to bring your own meter and test while you did the test.. I do the same thing.. I'm to impatient to wait..
