With DS (now 3.5) I failed the first glucose test and had to do the dreaded 3 hour one! I won’t lie it really sucked but I did pass the 3 hour test and never ended up with gestational diabetes.

I did! The 1 hour didn’t impact me at all, but the 3 hour did have an effect, so make sure you clear your day. I felt so tired and sick.   

I didn’t fail it by alot though. Just by 3pts and then passed the 3 hour with flying colors.

I have heard quite a few people that failed the 1 hour but passed the 3 hour. Hoerver GD is not the end of the world. I had it, so if you have any questions feel free to PM me.

I failed the one hour (it was not a fasting test though) and passed the 3 hour.  I too felt like total crap afterwards.  Bring food and water with you so you can eat once the last draw is taken.  I was starved!  I felt very shaky, tired and not myself for about 5-6 hours afterwards.  Not fun.  Good luck – I hope you pass!

I have my test next week. Do you get the results right then and there or do you have to wait?

My SIL failed the one hour test and had to do the three hour.  She said it wasn’t fun at all but she passed. 

 

@stbMohror:  I got my results a few minutes after she drew the blood but it seems like it’s a lot more common to have to wait a few days.

Thank you ladies for the info! I went in today and I only have to wait until tomorrow to find out. I’m crossing my fingers!

I failed the one hour and had to take the three hour. It sucked, but it wasn’t the end of the world. I was hungry, but the drink they give you does have calories so that helped. I did eat my banana pretty much as soon as I walked out of the office though- didn’t even make it to my car.

Yes, I did.  My first pregnancy I failed the one and three hour test and had gestational diabetes.  My second pregnancy, I failed the one hour and told the nurse that I was sure that I would fail the three hour test and was ready to except my blood sugar checking fate without subjecting myself to the three hour test.  She convinced me to do it anyway and to my surprise, I passed!
