Okay, so I am less than 2 weeks from my due date. The 23rd is the day to be precise. My baby is measuring a little big around the middle, and I failed my one hour glucose the first time. I passed the 3 hour just fine. They made me repeat the one hour last week because of the measurements and of course, I failed it (passing is 142 - I did a 148). So now they are making me take two hours of appointments with the diabetic counselor and the nutritionist. Did I mention I am 2 weeks away from my due date? Whatever!!!!!!!

No way would I go, and I'd of told them, that's ridiculous!

Just so you know, maternal glucose levels rise the further along you are. I would absolutely refuse. A higher glucose level at 38 weeks is not an indication of gestational diabetes but rather an indication your body is doing what it is supposed to.
