So today I had to go for a 3 hr test sinces yesterday my number was 141 and they wanted me to be under 135. Anyone that can shed some light on this would be wonderful.
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar f tn I just got home from by blood glucose test and feel really sick and tired. Is this normal? Does it mean something is wrong?
Avatar f tn Ok so I failed my one hr glucose test. I attempted my three hr one but after the first hour it all came right back up and my face was really broke out for two days. So now they want me to take it again. What if it comes back up. I'm almost 32 wks and I just feel like they should give up already or find another solution.
Avatar f tn In going for my glucose test tomorrow and I was wondering if it was OK to eat before the test or not. I have heard it was ok but I have also heard that you shouldn't because it will mess the test up. What should I do?
415867 tn?1323369103 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!!
Avatar f tn Please can someone explain to me what exactly is this glucose test all about.
Avatar f tn Was told just not to drink a bunch of pop before the test. So I ate like normal but just cut out my morning pop. With my last pregnancy I forgot and drank a pepsi before the test and still passed. I had a friend that did fast and failed the 1 hour and had to do the 3 hour test.
Avatar f tn Hey all, I have that glucose test tomorrow, with the orange drink. Can anyone tell me what they do exactly? I've heard you can be there up to 3 hours waiting, and that they'll take blood twice? I absolutely hate needles so this is gonna suck.

2075937 tn?1334887794 Ahh I hope I can keep the drink down but besides this glucose test and the blood draw is there anything else they do or check for at a 24 week app?
3184929 tn?1344701126 Ok so Monday I have da glucose test wut can I expect how does it work is the drink nasty.? How wus ur experience wen u took it?
Avatar f tn You can also ask to get your blood sugar monitored through out your pregnancy instead of the glue close test.
Avatar f tn You go and they give you the drink as soon as you sign in. After you drink it, you wait for a hour and they do some blood work. With my last pregnancy I ate before I took mine. They are checking for gestational diabetes. If you do have it then you might have to take medication and follow a special diet. Women with gestational diabetes tend to have bigger babies.
Avatar f tn Hello moms do all pregnant women do a glucose test.
360318 tn?1340396963 i've had gestational diabetes in my previous pregnancy and will be tested twice this time, first test came back normal but i need to be tested further along. The drink wont cause harm as a one off but they do need to check how your body reacts to it, its more dangerous not to give the drink and potentially let someone who HAS it go misdiagnosed following no specific diet or care for GD.
10219953 tn?1426175439 So with my 2 other kids I never passed the 1 hr test and after doing the 3 hr test my result were normal. So I never had a any blood sugar problem. This pregnancy hasn't been different didn't pass the 1 hr so went in for 3 hr and results were fine as I thought. Till I get a call from internal medicine that my 3rd blood result was abnormally low. My blood sugar was at 124 and it dropped to 36. They were calling to check on me to make sure I had gotten home okay and was have an okay evening.
Avatar n tn Hello ladies have any of ya skip or went to do the glucose test at 25 weeks I hate it I don't want to do it
8171031 tn?1399331234 2 the reason they took it twice was just to make sure I didnt have gd they took one early in my pregnancy and another later in my pregnancy but there could be any reason for them to be doing it to u again...
Avatar n tn I am 23 wks preggers and last week I saw my consultant, who has said in mid sept I have to have a glucose test. I have low blood pressure all the way through pregnancy, high BMI because I am overweight and the consultant put me on clexane injections daily. Can anyone tell me why I have to have this glucose test and what it's for please? I have had a poor diet because of bad sickness. I was losing weight up to 3-4 months preggers and I still have sickness now just not as bad.
Avatar f tn I have a glucose test in the morning & I am very nervous this is my first pregnancy I guess that's why I really need advice...
