Failed glucose test during pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Failed glucose test during pregnancy


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.
Well i failed my first glucose test. 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?
Bummed out. I failed my one hour glucose test. 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!
So monday I went and did the 1 hr glucose test and failed 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 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!
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.
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 failed my one hour test. I know have the three hour test. 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?
With all the other worries n difficulties during pregnancy 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 glucose diabetes test? 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 ?
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 have my glucose test 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 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 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.
Hey ladies..ok so im on my 4th pregnancy and due to have a glucose test in a few week..told its goin to take 2 to 3 hours! I have never had one before on previous pregnancies but i have heard it makes you feel awful sick this true? And what exactly does it involve? What was your experience of it like?
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.
If you fail the glucose test means you have gestational diabetes thats what the glucose test is for
