I had to do the 3 hour glucose test this week. I did the 1 hour test last week and just barely failed it. They wanted me to test around 20 weeks due to my weight just to be safe. Here is the email they sent me the next day.
This message is to inform you that your three-hour glucose tolerance test result is normal.
This test is considered normal if three out of the four results are within normal limits.
Your fasting glucose result was: 95; it needed to be below 95.
Your 1-hr glucose result was: 144; it needed to be below 180.
Your 2-hr glucose result was: 144; it needed to be below 155.
Your 3-hr glucose result was: 93; it needed to be below 140.
No further glucose testing is required at this time.
If you have any questions regarding this result please call the OB clinic and ask to speak with one of the nurses
So I passed it. That is usually what happens. I just barely fail the 1 hour then go on to pass the 3 hour. I will have to do this all over again in about 2 months when everybody else does it. I am going to ask to NOT to the 1 hour test again. I know full well I am going to fail it by only a couple of points. I always do. So let's just skip ahead and save me the time and frustration. I just want to do the 3 hour and get it over with. Oh well for now the good news is I can once again prove to them that despite my weight I am actually pretty healthy.
