Has anyone failed the one hour glucose screening test with a level of 170 (or higher) and then passed the 3 hour glucose tolerance test? I just found out I failed the initial test, and I am scared.

Yes, I failed my 1hr glucose test and got 168 for my normal is 70-130. Then I took my 3hr glucose and pa__sed. So, dont worry too much.......How far along are you? I took my 3 hr when I was on my end of 10 wks. My family doesnt have any history of diabetes but bcoz I was overweight they had to test me early to make sure. Dr. said I have to do it again when Im 25 wks preggo. Goodluck to you!

Thanks Tess. It makes me feel better to know your result was really close to mine and everything is okay. I'm 23 weeks today and I had the test last Thursday. My family doesn't have any history either, but I'm in my 30s. I'm not looking forward to the 3 hour, because I'm not good with needles and they also always have a really hard time finding my veins. Sorry you are going to have to do it again.

I go take my 1 hour one tomorrow. Im not to excited about it. The Dr. said that i dont have to fast. Do you have to for the 3 hour?


K - November 8

Yes. You have to fast for 12 hours before the 3 hour. I've heard that combined with the sugar causes a lot of people to pa__s out during the 3 hour test.

I wish I had a choice but I dont. Oh wellz....So K, do you know your baby's gender yet? Did you find out yet or is it a suprised?


K - November 8

We're having a girl! Are you going to find out? Do you know when your ultrasound will be?

I would suggest not eating or drinking anything the morning of your test. The reason I say this is because I did and failed the 1 hr by 4 points! The 3 hour test is not fun although I pa__sed. I have heard that this happens to a lot of women (I posted a thread on the 3rd trimester board to see how common it is) and we pretty much all wished we had not had juice or cereal that morning....just a suggestion...
