So, I failed my 1 hour GTT. I'm trying really hard not to worry about it at all until after Monday when I take the 3 hour test because I know some women fail the one hour and then pass the three hour. I feel pretty sure that I did the best I could on trying to pass the test: I woke up at 9 am, at a ribeye and drank a bunch of water, took the sugar drink at 11, and had the blood draw at 12. It was 168.
I'm already on a pretty strict, mainly protien and leafy green diet, so Im not too concerned about having to alter my diet if I do fail the three hour test. It means no more indulgences in crappy boxed cereal, which I can deal with.
I've never had GD before, and I've been trying to look in to what the actual risks are for multiples and Im not having much luck finding good resources. Maybe it's because Im grumpy about it, maybe it's because Im hesitant to read about anything that means something might actually be wrong, but I need some help finding out what the real risks might be.
It seems like the big risk with GD is big babies, but with twins that isnt as big of a risk. I've read that controlling it with diet or insilun can lead to premature birth, but that not controlling it can lead to jaundice or high sugar levels for the babies. So, I dont really know what to think about it. Like I said, I dont want to worry so much, but I have to know some things because I still have several days between now and when I find out for sure.
