I did mine today and failed. My blood sugar was 149. It's really ironic because I failed the 1 hour with my DD also and my number was 149. Weird! LOL I passed the 3 hour with her so I'm hoping to do the same with this little guy! I take the 3 hour on Friday.

Hrm, I'd probably get cranky with my mw/ob and not retest, nor accept their label of GD with just 149! Only 20% of women with that level go on to fail the 3hr.

http://www.plus-size-pregnancy.org/gd/gd_testing.htm

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

hiya. My first level was 153 (with a high end of normal fasting level done first). I passed the second. My midwife is still iffy on my results because of my high end of normal fasting glucose and history of big babies and other "risk factors."

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!

I "failed" the 1-hr about 10 days ago with a 149. I passed the 3-hr test last week. I'm not sure of my numbers with the 3 hour. I tried to talk my Dr. into letting me self monitor but he insisted that I take the 3 hour.

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!

Good Luck.

BoSox Mama - yeah, I have "risk" factors too. DD was 10lbs 7oz. Diabetes runs in my family. I was 10lbs overweight when I got pg. Blah blah blah.

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.

Oh yeah... that sounds like a semi-spa treatment!

I did the 1h two weeks ago and failed with 151. So I did the 3h a week ago. I haven't seen my numbers because the doctor said she saw the results but they just weren't in put in my file yet. But she said that if I had failed again they would have already contacted me...so yay!

I failed the one hour with a 151. I have done the three hour but have not heard about my results yet. (An awful experience!) All those saying they passed with similar one hour numbers gives me hope though!

First Test failed with 155, second test failed as well. Thursday we decide on Insulin. At least I know.

Congrats on passing ladies.

I failed with a 184!

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.

I didnt do the 1 hr glucose test. My dr felt that the A1C would give a more more accurate picture so took it last visit. Guess we shall see in two weeks how I did.

Here's hoping you pass the 3 hr like before!

Bumping this! I just failed the 1-hour with a 200 I'm hoping against hope that there's some way I'll pass the 3-hour, but it's not looking good. Anyone fail with a high number like that and go on to pass the 3-hour?
