To Those Who Have Had To Go For The 3 Hour Gt Test

tiffani~69 days to go - August 24

I just received a call from my doctor, who informed me that I have to go for the 3 hour Glucose Tolerance test. I was told my 1 hour test results gave the #147, and that it needs to be 139 and below. My doc said I have a 50-50 chance of having Gestational Diabetes (which terrifies me). I'm wondering what everyone elses # was when they were referred for additional testing, and whether or not they ended up with it. Does GD mean daily shots and daily blood testing? FYI... This is my 3rd baby and i'm 31. Thanks! :o)

I heard most women will fail the first test and have to take the 3 hour one, which I did, and I pa__sed all three tests for the 3 hour one. They told me that's really common and most women pa__s the second one for some reason. Don't worry too much about it.
