Common Questions and Answers about Failed glucose test during pregnancy

glucose

So it seems I can't pass any test with this baby. Ugh! Anyway, I failed my 1 hour glucose test & have to now take the 3 hour test :( That means 4 more blood draws & drinking that horrid mixture again. Has any on failed the 1 hour & passed the 3 hour?
Hi Everyone, I just found out I failed my glucose test. I have to do the 3 hour one this weekend, but has anyone else failed it? Did you turn out to have gestational diabetes? I am really OK with having it, but I don't like being in limbo, I just want to know if I have it or not so I can be told what I need to do and be monitored if necessary. It's hard not to worry about whether the damage has been done or not. I hope the bubba is OK in there!
So I failed my 1 hour glucose test with a 217! I'm really wondering if it had something to do with what I ate this weekend. I had an abnormally high amount of carbs (biscuits, breads, etc.) and sugar (sherbert, donuts). I was out of town and being cooked for so I wasn't able to watch what went in things. I am on metformin 1000 milligrams ER. I go back next week for the 3 hour test. What are my chances of passing with a low carb and high protein diet with a number that high?
Failed my blood glucose test. My obstetrician's office rang and said that I had an abnormal reading and I have to take the 2 hour test. (Just wondering if this is normal for them to say? Don't they normally just say you failed and have to have the longer test?) I am freaking out a bit. My mum had Gestational Diabetes for many of her pregnancies and now that I think about it alot of symptoms i've had during my pregnancy do suggest that I have it. Oh well, hopefully I pass the 2nd test.
Hi there, I just found out I flunked the one hour glucose test and now thurs I have to do the three hour test which sounds a lot more involved (like hanging out in the dr's office for 3 hours while they draw my blood every hour) Has anyone failed the first and passed the second? I hear there is a high rate of failed on the hour and then things are fine on the second test. Is this true? I am really surprised that my numbers were high and dont know what causes this.
31 weeks took glucose 1 hour and failed im freaking out now! I know there has been posts on this but i dont have the patience to search endless posts for it right now.I have not freaked out since the middle of my second trimester! Im soooo mad! I had to change doctors.just to get this test because the dr i was seeing did not even give me blood work and i was seeing her every 2 to 3 weeks since i was 7 weeks. I kept asking and she just push me out. Anyways she was an incompetent doctor!
now im 19 weeks preggos today and i was tested for gestation diabetes early on due to the fact that i have PCOS and because im overweight and diabetes runs in my family they always have a concern...i did do the 1 hr glucose test and i failed it miserably!!
Which doesn't have many health problems for baby but it means a difficult birth for mom. That's my understanding of diabetes during pregnancy.
With all the other worries n difficulties during pregnancy watching what you eat shouldn't be one lol
i'll be getting another glucose test in 2.5 weeks along with a CBC test. i hope all goes well.
So I just got the call from the doctors office I failed my second 1hr glucose test :/ so I have to go back on Wednesday to take a 3hr glucose test. Has that happened to anyone and ended up passing the 3hr glucose test..?!
I failed my glucose screen too! I just got the results from my 3 hour test today. Whew....passed. My understanding is that quite a few people (up to 25%) fail the initial glucose tolerance screen but very few fail the 3 hour test. I'm sure you'll pass too! Sorry but btw the 3 hour test is horrible, just sitting and waiting and 4 blood collections. BOO!
Blah I have the glucose test tomorrow and I was wondering, is it really 3 hours or is that the longest it can take? I really don't want to be there for 3 hours.
I just drank the orange drink for the glucose test now I'm waiting for the hour to have blood drawn. Honestly, from what I've seen on here and how some girls got sick off of it etc I thought it was gonna be horrible. But the drink wasn't that bad! I chugged it though since my nurse poured it over ice. But it honestly wasn't as horrible as some people make it out to be. It just made my girls really hyper lol.
I had a glucose test done at 3 months and passed and i had one last week and failed. Now i have to do the 3 hour glucose test ugh lol. The told me i was gunna take it twice because im over wieght.
No. U can refuse it...u can refuse any test during pregnancy. HOWEVER, gestational diabetes could be dangerous for you and baby if left untreated and undiagnosed.
I wouldnt eat anything they told me i could eat just nothing sugary so like a ******* i eat a bagel not knowing the sugar in it..
i failed by 8 points. I fasted for my 3 hour test and passed. It's not so bad. My whole pregnancy I ate nothing but sweets. Even if they told me i didn't have to fast, I still would have.
I guess I should have expected this, because I've gotten dizzy and shaky a couple of times lately after I had sugar (limeade, not even soda), but it still took me by surprise how spectacularly I failed the one-hour glucose test today- 166. I was fasting when I took it to make sure I got the most accurate results. I also felt lousy- exhausted, dizzy, stupid- for the rest of the day, even after I ate. The technician was pretty rude too, he said "You just bought yourself a three hour test.
What can i do to pass my glucose test? I failed the first one and tomorrow i have to take the 3 hour test...the doctor didnt say if i have to fast or not but what did u ladies do to pass urs?
Results turned out fine but later that week I took the regular urine test and fingertip blood test and my glucose was high, don't know what is going on but remaining positive. Dr. visit tomorrow will get some clarification hopefully.
Im almost 20 weeks n dr. Set up glucose test for next appt. Really worrying about it since both my mother and grandmother had gestational diabetes...plus when I had sono yesterday baby weighed 11oz which according to some websites is above average although dr said it was fine.
Can't help you on the glucose test but I also gained 6 lbs from one apointment to the next right around that time. I think from 23 weeks to 27. I know alot of people that have done that. I'm gonna tell you what every one else tells me.....worry about the weight later. I'm 32 weeks (maybe 34) and I've gained 28 lbs. I was freaking out. I had actually gained 30 but I just lost 2. I decided just to deal with it later. Enjoy your pregnancy and good luck on the 3 hr!
I failed it and had to do the 3 hour test and failed it too! Was diagnosed with gestational diabetes, it ***** because I gotta be on a diet and i can't have sugar but as long as my princess is healthy thats all that matters! Im 34+1 now so not much longer for me lol good luck on your test and dont be nervous :) its really not that bad! worst part was not being able to eat until it was over, i was starving!
Just wondering if any ladies have had this test done before and what I could expect during the test. Do they need to take blood out every hour? Im just worried I may have gestational diabetes. This is my third pregnancy and never had an issues with my other two pregnancies. Im scared. Advice please!!
so i took my 1hr glucose test about a week ago and i failed. i dont know whats wrong or if ill even pass the 3hr one. the same day i took the test i had a dr apt and i had an u/s then i was to be 26wks 2days and my baby was measuring 29wks 2 days. do you think its possible that i have gest diabities? im just so scared.
Strange thing is I ran across my old questions in this forum while doing a search, and My numbers were high during this stage of my pregnancy, but by the time I had my test at 28 weeks, they were very normal for the 1 hr glucose. No 3 hour was ever done. My first test during my last pregnancy was at 9 weeks which was normal. I can't help but think that maybe something goes on in the beginning of the second trimester that affects sugar levels.
I felt fine during my whole test, and I failed, the one hour and the 2 hour I still felt fine and it came back borderline and am now seeing a diabetes specialist, so I am assuming everyone is affected differently!
Hi everyone :) I have my glucose test coming up this friday. I'm 27 weeks. And I've been dreading this test since the very beginning. Can anyone give a little insight on how the test goes. It's the first one so the one hour..hoping to pass. Do you feel sick? Or dizzy or weir from that high concentration of sugar??? Anything to worry about??
