I failed my 1-hour glucose tolerance test during a recent prenatal visit. My OB doctor called and told me that I had failed the one-hour test for gestational diabetes, which absolutely shocked me.
I passed the 1-hour glucose test (gestational diabetes) during my first pregnancy with ease, and I had been eating much healthier during this pregnancy. I never thought that I’d fail this test.
I had to schedule another appointment so that I could take the 3-hour glucose test, which required four blood draws, 8 hours of fasting, and more. The 3-hour glucose test was not fun at all, but it will help the doctors determine if you have gestational diabetes.
Watch the video to learn how that turned out, plus information on what it means if you fail the 3-hour glucose test.
