Yes, what you ate could have affected your test results. You can do the one hour fasting or not, but eating something with sugar in it too close to the test, will throw your results off.

Like PP have said, it's a screening tool, and it's meant to cast a wide net so as not to miss the women who actually have gestational diabetes.

I failed my one hour when pregnant with my daughter. I got a 179 (high!). I had eaten a peanut butter sandwich less than an hour before the test (protein, but plenty of "sugars" in both the bread and the peanut butter). I passed the three hour (which is fasting), and none of my values were out of range.

I just passed my one hour with this pregnancy this past week with no problem.. I ate a breakfast of scrambled eggs and turkey sausage about an hour and a half before drinking the glucola, so no sugar, but plenty of protein.

i'm really surprised they didn't say anything to you either. i had mine a week ago and even the bottle of sugary drink instructs medical professionals to have patients take the test fasting. the only thing i'm willing to eat if i can't get buy with nothing is nuts, hardboiled eggs, and other protein. sorry! i bet you'll be fine on your three hour.

hoping for a !

I failed the 1 hour screening and passed the 3 hour test with flying colors. I wouldn't alter the way you eat. Just do what you normally do so that you have an accurate result.

Thanks ladies! So you don't think I should drastically change my diet before the 3 hr test (meaning days before, or starting now)?

I can't retake the 1 hr.

I just got my results of the 1 hr, I passed with a 64.

 

I had my normal breakfast of three scrambled eggs and a piece of cheese, then drank the stuff an hour later, then walked to the clinic (ten min walk). I was thinking the walk might have been good to help process the sugar, but it was a normal amount of exersize for me to randomly get.

I failed my 1-hour in both pregnancies, and passed the 3-hour in both. I didn't really modify my diet or do anything particular before the 3-hour. I just continued to eat as I normally do because I figured that if I were diabetic, I would want to know.
