Wink Re: Stinking Glucose Test!

Ugh! I've been there, too. GD with my first pregnancy. Failed the 1-hr, but my OB didn't follow up with the 3-hr. She just had me start the protocol with diet and BS checks. The only thing that ever spiked my levels was fruit/fruit juice and soda (which coke was the only thing that settled my stomach since I had nausea the whole pregnancy). No GD problems with my 2nd son. It's possible to pass the 3-hr after failing the 1-hr. The issue is insulin resistance. The 3-hr just gives your body more time to process the sugar. If your body can achieve normalized levels after 3-hr you worry less about the excess sugar getting to baby. Best of luck!
