Failed 1 hour test...

I failed the 1 hour test and since I am in the hospital, I told them to just change me over to the diabetic diet now... I hope I pass the 3 hour next week so the nurses don't have to prick my fingers, doesn't sounds like too much fun.

That sucks. I failed too. I am waiting for the diet to follow before my 3hr. I am sure I will fail that one as well. The finger pricking isn't too bad. Good Luck

I had to stick my fingers 4xs a day...iit wasn't fun...but it wasn't too bad. Sorry to hear you failed it but just remember it's only for a short time now. Hugs

I am sorry to hear that. I have had gd with all 3 of my pregnancies and I get it early. I stick my fingers 4xs/day, but it's not so bad. I would suggest you ask for the pen to stick yourself and figure what setting you need to draw blood. I found the nurses just went deep automatically. Also if you prick yourself more on the sides of your fingers rather than dirctly in the pads it hurts less. I always kept a log of what I ate followed by what my blood sugar was. It allowed me to figure out what I could eat and in what combinations. I can eat carbs if I pair it with a protein. If you have any questions I may be able to help.

I'm so sorry. You don't need any more stress. I hope you pass the next test.

Boo to that - just found out today that I also failed. Not looking forward to the 3 hour at all.
