I'd offer to make some dietary changes, start exercising a little more and would even monitor my numbers at home for a week, if they were resistant.
Sure sorry you failed and have to do the 3hr! I hope your results go just like your first and you pass with flying colors!
Nobody is diagnosing me with GD just from the 1 hour or even assuming that I have it before going to do the 3 hour. Diabetes (non-gestational) runs in my family so I'm willing to do the testing. I was just curious about other's numbers who "failed" the 1 hour. Ya know... pregnancy conversational pieces. LOL
GD is a "hot" topic around here. Good luck with your three hour. I'll warn you though, the glucola for the three hour was so sweet it burned on the way down.... ick.
Edit- sorry, just re-read your OP and you've done the three hour before so you already know how "tasty" it is. Good luck!
The lab waiting area was filled with kids getting tested for step throat. I was ready to bail out of the test if another kid coughed on me while I waited. Ugh!
Proud2Be - that stinks about the lab waiting area! Yuck. The lab I go to lets me have my own private room with a padded table thingy so I can take a nap in between the blood draws.
Memz, with my and mommy of born 01/17/10 and 3
Israel, mom to DD, Ivy, 4-27-06 :and DS, Kai, 12-29-07 and DD, Lilith 2-1-10 and always remembering Alice fullterm stillborn 08/31/11 (unexplained placental abruption)
i have failed the 1 hour - my number was 172.
so, i've got to schedule the 3 hour for the week after thanksgiving.
I was very surprised because I have no risk factors and in fact, the baby is currently measuring on the small side. With #1 I passed the 1 HR, DS also measured small, my fundal length was on the short side, etc. etc.
I did pass the 3 H, but only barely. One of my numbers was above the cut-off and all the others were just below it. In theory I'm trying to eat better just to be on the safe side, but in practice...well, I'm not being so good.
