Common Questions and Answers about Glucose test pregnancy how to pass test


So I took the one hour test and I didn't pass it :/ I am to take the three hour test soon. How do I pass it? I am planning on going on a very strict diet. Any else I should do? How did you pass the test?
What is the glucose test & what is the purpose of it? How does it work and how do you fail/pass the test :/ someone explain everything to.
I know I already have a post but wondering how u lady's got by with your glucose test? Im terrible at having blood taken if I don't eat something before hand I pass out so im petrified cuz im not aloud anything but water from 10pm the night before how am I gonna manage having blood taken with no food?
How many of u failed your first glucose test and had to go for the 3 hour test? I have to go tommorow morning for the 3 hour because I failed the first one. I am sooooo worried about failing this one. Is it something that happens often?
I have to do the glucose test on the 19th. it'll be the second time I've done it because the first time I only made it 30 minutes before getting sick.
My doc just called and I did not pass the 1-hour glucose test so now I have to go back for the 3-hour! Has this happened to anybody? Anyone know what happens if I have the diabetes you get with pregnancy? Ugh!
i was given a green drink to drink when i got there and then after 1hr they took some blood and then i could leave, unfortunately for me my levels came back really high so i had to a second test where i was not allowed to eat for 12hrs before the test but i was still allowed to drink water. This time they took blood before then made have a green drink then i had to sit around for 2hrs then they took more blood before i could go home.
If it's the one hr they take ur blood then u have 5 minutes to drink then at the end of the hr they draw blood again, if it's the three hour which I had to do twice this pregnancy, u have to fast the night before they draw blood every hr for three hours and u drink again it ***** waiting there but I was so .
So yesterday i had my test done and got a call that i failed it and have to retest with a 3 hour wait instead of 1. I have been eating a lot of junk food my whole pregnancy. If i get diabetes will it go away? Will my baby have it?
I went for my testing yesterday, safe to say it didn't go well I ended up vomiting it up all over the office and got sent to talk to my Dr to figure out what to do and am now known as the 'woman that threw up everywhere' quite embarrassing, but I guess my first pregnancy is gonna be pretty memorable..
after my first test they send me for 3 hours test that they gave me 150 mil same drink ,if u are going to take the test and want to pass it , try to fast for few hours before the test. i did not for that reason i did not pass it for first round.
Mine didn't give me explicit instructions about fasting, just a little sugar drink with instructions on it on how to drink it, and I had a Monday morning test so I had to wing it. I ate, just stayed away from carbs and sugars, so had eggs that morning. Mine came back okay, not sure if it was because of what I did/didn't eat that morning.
What's a glucose test? & what do you half to do?
I failed my glucose test. they have me going in to retake it, a three hr test where they draw my blood four times. my question is, how worried should I be as I am freaking out....I'm very much in shape, not over weight, eat decently well, so I feel worried and confused by this. this is my first pregnancy, I'm worried about the health of my baby....
I had to do the 3hr glucose test with this pregnancy. I never felt sick though. I only felt queezy when i was drinking the bottom of the bottle since all the sugar settled. By the time i left the lab though i was really weak and shakey. I was starving. I passed the 3hr test thankfully.
Anyone else fail the one hour glucose test and have to take the 3 hour glucose test??
Since you have had a history of gestational diabetes, it probably is something to watch. Your body may have responded to the glucose tolerance test with more insulin than you needed, but I am not a doctor, so I can't say for sure it was a response to the test. The fact that your levels are fine is a good sign that you may get through this pregnancy without the gestational diabetes. But even so you may want to do an occasional blood test to make sure.
Are you having your test right away in the morning? I could not eat or drink after midnight, my test was at 8 am--so 8 hrs. If your test is later in the day--find out what time you must stop taking in fluids.
Ok so tomorrow is my glucose test! Finally! The test I've been dreading this entire pregnancy is finally upon me! Lol! Ok anyway! I have to go alone unfortunately, and I was wondering if any of you ladies did this test alone? I get really light headed when they take more than 3 vials of I'm just kinda nervous!
Well depending on how bad it really is you could be able to just control it with diet I did with my son and I have it with my daughter...if its bad you may be put on medicine if diet only doesn't work...your Dr my schedule you for a specialist to check the size of baby and such...
It's really no big deal in the grand scheme of things. Yes it's a pain to have to test my blood sugar 4 times a day but I know this is what is best to have a healthy baby and the gestational diabetes will go away once the baby is delivered, It's really a small price to pay in order to have a healthy baby, On the plus side, because I have GD I get to get a growth scan at 34 weeks and 37/38 weeks so I get to see my baby again = ) Don't worry about it if you don't pass the 3 hour test.
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!
I just did my first glucose test for this pregnancy and I am 27 weeks, so yay, you had yours done really early. But I would agree with the above that if you have a history that could be the reason it was done?
The normal range is 65 to 139. They've asked me to come back for a 3 hour test. I'm worried. Has anybody had a one hour test come back high and a three hour test come back normal?
I fasted ofr the one hour test bc I couldnt remember and I got really sick.. The nurse told me I didnt have to fast, but that I wouldnt screw the test up either. My advice would be to eat.
I just had the 1 hr glucose test done this past week and I failed so now I have to go back for the 3 hr. What do they do at the three hr and what happens if I fail this one? Does eating food that has a lot of sugar make you fail or is it something else?
I had my glucose test at 26 weeks because they were about to give me steriods which also increases your sugar levels for 2 weeks. I failed right off the bat, they didn't even need to retest (my number was 12 mmo/L) They tried to control it with diet for the first 2 weeks but with the steriods i had no luck, it was very evident after the 2 weeks though i couldn't control it with diet....but being on bedrest has a lot to do with that. I've been on insulin since 29 weeks.
Basically I want to know, is my bad eating habits going to affect the outcome of this test or does it have nothing to do with what I eat and more so just how my body handles the drink?
When I had to do the 3 hour test I had to drink double the amt. of that stuff......And the worst part was that I was starving to death by the end of the 3 hours and was stinks..... I hear ya too about being sick all the time! I had the dry heaves so bad yesterday that I piddled my pants! AHHH! Yuck!!!!
