Failed glucose test during pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Failed glucose test during pregnancy


So it seems I can't pass any <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> with this baby. Ugh! Anyway, I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>failed</span> my 1 hour <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glucose</span> 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?
I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>failed</span> first <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glucose</span> test with 156 and had to do 3 hr test. They told me to eat like I normally do but to not eat anything after midnight. My appt was at 9. I could only drink water. I've NEVER heard them tell anyone to eat sweets like that and this is my fourth pregnancy. I would definitely be recheck ing with them.
Hi Everyone, I just found out I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>failed</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glucose</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span>. 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>failed</span> my 1 hour <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glucose</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> 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?
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>failed</span> my blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glucose</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span>. 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.
Bummed out. I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>failed</span> my one hour <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glucose</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span>. Now I have to go back tomorrow for the three hour test. I think it's my fault because, like a dumb a**, I ate waffles for breakfast. I called the lab and they said it wad fine to still come in, but now I wish I would have waited!
Well i <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>failed</span> my first <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glucose</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span>. They didnt tell me not to eat or drink prior to the test. So now i have to do the 3 hour test. I have a feeling im going to fail that too,..... what does it mean if i have diabetes during pregnancy? Will it affect my baby? Am i high risk pregnancy now?
So monday I went and did the 1 hr <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glucose</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>failed</span> with a 167, I actually think it was my fault because I had donuts for breakfast and at some point or another drank a soda all right before the test. Now I have to go back in this coming Monday to do the 3 hr! The lab tech said not to stress to much, more often then not you can fail that first test and pass the second with flying colors. Anyone else fail the one hr and go on to pass the 3? Trying to not stress until it's all said and done!
Hi there, I just found out I flunked the one hour <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glucose</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glucose</span> 1 hour and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>failed</span> 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!
Which doesn't have many health problems for baby but it means a difficult birth for mom. That's my understanding of diabetes during <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span>.
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!!
Just got my results and I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>failed</span> my one hour <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span>. I know have the three hour <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span>. Just wondering how many moms failed the one hour and passed the three hour? And for those.moms who have GD what do you have to do now? How has it changed your pregnancy?
I found out I have hypoglycemia, not diabetes... it gets worse during <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> for me. I have to avoid sugar. Good luck!
With all the other worries n difficulties during <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> watching what you eat shouldn't be one lol
Have any of you ladies ate alot of sugary things & ate unhealthy during pregnaxy & went to go take the glucose test & failed it bcuss you ate too much sugars during pregnancy & gained diabetes? Can this even happen? Lol I'm a ftm & iknow ur suppose to fast before going to take it. But has this ever happened to any of you ladies.
Who has taken the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glucose</span> diabetes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span>? How did it go? I'm kinda nervous what if I do come out positive for it . Did your pregnancy still continue normal and did ur baby have any complications ?
So I just got the call from the doctors office I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>failed</span> my second 1hr <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glucose</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> :/ 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 was told not to fast my first <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> and i ate a regular breakfast and i <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>failed</span> so i had to do the 3 hour <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span>. This time i was told not to eat and i go next week for the test. I dont look so i dont know how many viles they take!
How many of you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>failed</span> the 1hour <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glucose</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> but passed the 3hour <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span>? I had 162 and the highest you can get is 139. So my sugar was high. I tried doing the 3hour test today and puked so I have to do it again.
I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>failed</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glucose</span> screen too! I just got the results from my 3 hour <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glucose</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> 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 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>failed</span> the one-hour <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glucose</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> 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.
I just drank the orange drink for the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glucose</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> 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 have my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glucose</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> in a few weeks and myidwife said I have to fast as from 8pm the night before and that im only allowed to drink water
I had a glucose test done at 3 months and passed and i had one last week and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>failed</span>. Now i have to do the 3 hour <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glucose</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> ugh lol. The told me i was gunna take it twice because im over wieght.
No. U can refuse it...u can refuse any <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> during <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span>. HOWEVER, gestational diabetes could be dangerous for you and baby if left untreated and undiagnosed.
