I had gestational diabetes (GD) with my last pregnancy.

DS1 was over 11lbs without GD so when I was preggo with DS2 they tested me @ 14wks and I FAILED. UGH...I did pretty good but it was a long pregnancy of finger pricks lol. I am seeing a different OB this time and the nurse mentioned I would be tested around 14weeks again. I am SO hoping that I will pass but I am not counting on it....

I failed by 4 points...now I get to do the 3 hour next week. :( I kind of wish I would have just failed completely and didn't have to do the 3 hour.

My DS was over 11 lbs, also, and I didn't have GD. I think I passed the 1 hour test. I'm going to imagine that they will have me take one earlier. At least I'll get it done early, right?

Only four points is a good thing, Stacie. Maybe the 3 hour will be passed. Good luck!
