Failed Glucose :(
Fri, 01-04-2013 - 11:05pm

First, I am so happy to finally be in 3-T!!! it went by so quick and im so excited to be this close to holding Christopher! :). 

But- I got a call today that I failed my one hour glucose test with a 156 and now I have to go in for the three hour test.  I'm nervous and GD does run in my family making me more nervous.  Hopefully the three hour test has better results, but I have to wait a week before I can take it because I'm sick.  I have to go in to urgent care tomorrow it might be pnemonia or the flu but when I went in to the E.R tonight like the urgent care nurse recommended they were absolutely packed and was told Id be in the waiting room for over 5 hours.  I figured Id be much better off resting at home and going in the morning than trying to keep myself sitting awake in a packed waiting room.  Anyway, they wont do the fasting and test while I'm sick so they set it for the 14th.  Has anyone else failed the first test and still passed the second?   

Thanks for listening :)

Thanks Kiki!! :) hopefully I pass on monday at my three hour.  This whole diet they put me on for it sucks, you think a diet that tells you to eat a whole lot of good foods would make me happy but I cannot each this much in a day! lol.   How are you!?

I passed the one hour but I've known people to fail that one then pass the long test. Hopefully you will too. Feel better and good luck with the 3 hour test!

First off congrats on making it to the third trimester That's a bummer. I had to do the 3hr when we were ttc. That stunk and I wasn't pregnant. Hopefully it will go quickily for you. Make sure you bring lots of entertainment with you. Oh and keep an eye on the time. The timer malfunctioned when I went and I figured it out a little late. It almost ruined the results. Sending you lots of good vibes that you pass. Hope you feel better soon.
