I failed my first with a blood sugar of 180 and passed the 3hr – I was hypoglycemic on all of the readings for the 3hr lol!

From what I hear it’s very common to have to take the 3 hour test… and most women are fine! I would think you will be good since you were only a little bit over 135 after an hour. Sorry you have to go back  Good luck!

I passed the 3 hour test by the skin of my teeth after failing the 1 hour test.

No idea on the % likelihood — but can you ask to do the 1 hour test again?  Considering you were so close to the cut off, it’s likely they’ll let you just take the 1 hour again instead of the 3…

drdeebee:  there’s a good chance. I had a 138 and then passed my 3 hours with flying colors.

My tips for the test are to bring your laptop (it is super boring, but I got a ton of work done while I waited) and a snack. You’ll be starving afterwards!

I failed the first time too. Had to take it a second time and passed. Not sure what happened. I had to fast also.

I failed my one hour test with a 143 and easily passed the three hour. Since your number was low I doubt you’d have an issue.

I think a large number of women fail the 1 hour test and end up having to take the 3 hour. I’m almost at the point where I’ll have to take the 1 hour test and I can pretty much gaurantee I won’t pass it.

drdeebee:  My score was slightly worse. I also did not eat at all before hand. I passed my 3 hr with flying colors.

I failed the 1 hour by 2 points. Passed the 3 hour no problem. I also fasted before both. I’m sure you’ll be just fine for the 3 hour! It’s just a huge pain sitting around in the office for that long

I think most people who have to take the 3 hour test pass it. So, chances are you don’t have gestational diabetes. But if you do, it’s better to know so you can take care of yourself and the baby. I had it and it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Good luck!

I failed the first test by 1 point.  Passed the next test. I remember being so worried, the nurse who took my blood said that she rarely sees people fail the second one. And never anyone who was borderline on the first.
