My 1hr was 166 so I was sure I was going to fail the 3hr, but I didn't! I just barely passed and have cut down on sugar intake but it was a relief. GL with your 3hr!

I'm hoping that I'll pass. I did have black decaf coffee b4 i went for the test, and it was a little less than an hour when she took my blood, so my fingers are def crossed. I'm hoping for a VBAC and I don't know what will happen to that if I end having GD.

A dumb thing I do that may or may not work is to lick cinnamon before I leave my house for the test. I put some in the palm of my hand and slowly lick it. I have to sip water in between because it's seriously nasty. I can't tell if it actually works or is a placebo to make me think something is regulating my sugars. I also fast. I'm told you don't have to fast, but I seriously don't need anything in my stomach converting carbs into sugars during that test. GL!

I agree with you Stephanie about the fasting. I failed my 1hr last week. My other 5 children were born in NY and they always told me to fast. I never failed the 1 hr. This pregnancy 9 yrs later they tell me not to fast and I actually did fast. I got week in the morning and ate something because I started to feel sick. It was 2 1/2 hrs before the test. I failed. My appt was at 10:45 wasn't thinking should have made sure it was the earliest time 8 am. Now I have to take a 3 hr test on Friday. Ugh
I feel like I was set up to fail. Well we'll see what happens Friday.

I failed my 1 hr test. So now I have the 3 hr test next week. I failed the 1 hr test last time and passed the 3 hr, so I hoping it goes the same this time. I also did fast but I guess it didn't help. GL on your 3 hr test.
