I am surprised that with my fourth pregnancy and having no risk factors other than age, that I failed the GTT.

Glad everything else went well, maybe they will come around and let you skip the three hour test. :D

When I was pregnant with number 1 I literally had 0 risk factors yet ended up with gd. I was 20 years old, weighed 110 pounds at the start of my pregnancy and everything else didn't fit. I had a hard time controlling it and had to be on insulin yada yada yada. So it is possible that you can have it. Not trying to scare you, but it could be possible.

I know it CAN happen, but I only "failed" the one hour by a couple of points.

I'm not sure by how much I failed the one hour, but I just had to take the three hour.

Thanks!  I hope that your test comes back ok, as well!!  

I told the nurse to tell the dr. that I would be willing to go through the education and monitor my levels at home.  I should hear back from the OB office tomorrow about how they want me to proceed.  I'm sure it is more complicated then just going for the test, but I'm pretty sure I would not even be able to keep the stuff down after 8-10 hours of fasting.  I already feel sick if I don't eat every six hours..I even wake up starving in the middle of the night sometimes.  

I hope that the dr is ok with this..obviously I want to look out for baby, but I want to do it in a way that will not leave me feeling like crap in the process.

I can't believe they wouldn't let you have water.  Why not??  Even during my one hour, they said I could have water!
