2nd opinion ultrasound...
10
Sat, 06-18-2011 - 11:10pm
My on sent me in for another u/s after the first one showed lower fluid, low placenta, and not good views of the heart. I also had my v1hr glucose test early because of some sickness and symptoms I've been having.

I went to fetal specialist and the dr did my scan said everything looks great, fluid is normal, her heart looks good she is just in a crazy position. My placenta is low but this dr says I shouldn't worry it will move. I'll have to have another scan closer to delivery. So I failed my 1 hr glucose test. You don't need to fast so i didn't but that morning i had lots of Tang so i am hoping that's the problem. So next week i get the three hour test. I passed the 1hr with my son.

Hubby and me were hoping for a boy but when i found out it was a girl i just became thrilled. Hubby is too. My son already wanted a sister so he was ecstatic. Hope everyone else is well.

Great news on the ultrasound!! YAY!!!

As far as the 1 hour glucose. Both my friend and I failed the 1 hour but passed the 3 hour so don't worry about that until after the results from the 3 hour test. :) Good Luck!!

Not sure if all glucose tests are the same but my dr told me not to have any sugar the morning of the test or I would fail.

Good point...my Dr. had always told me not to eat or drink anything before my glucose test (they always tried to schedule them in the morning) and especially before the 3 hour. It sounds like that was a rather extreme way of doing the test if other Drs are okay with eating breakfast as long as it wasn't sugary. But in any case, that tang could have set it off. Good Luck!

Yesvi am thinking I should have just had nothing but the ob didn't say not too I should have known better.

Congratulations on a great u/s and team pink. Hope you pass the 3 hr screen. I hate that glucose test!

Yay for a great u/s! I hope the Tang is what affected the 1hr (I love that people still drink that stuff...haven't seen it in the longest time!) and that your 3 hour is easy breezy.
