My 1 hour test came back high so my doctor sent me back for the longer 3 hour test. I am so afraid of finding out I have diabetes. Im not feeling very optimistic about this one. Anyone else being treated for diabetes? Can women go on to have a safe pregnancy>?

I scored 185 on my 1 hour glucose test so now I have to go back as well for the 3 hour test. I am actually terrified of the test and of the results. The test will make me feel really nauseous :( I'm only 10 weeks so this is early to be checking blood sugar levels. From what I have read, the only danger of gestational diabetes is a big baby and a baby born with low blood sugar (if your diabetes is not controlled). The danger for me is that since I have it so early (before 12 weeks) it could cause birth defects in the brain or heart. I have stopped eating anything with sugar, no white flour products, no juice and no fruits but I'm actually feeling better and with less morning sickness because of the diet.
