Re: Stinking Glucose Test!

I'm sure you know, the one hour is a screening, so a lot of people fail the one hour and pass the 3 hour. I failed mine for the first time, so I have to do the 3 hour. It's actually good to know, because it means you are at a higher risk of type II diabetes later in life, so if I end up with GD, I now know to be extra careful with my weight and fitness level as I get older. And its good to know for the safety of the baby. The risks go beyond just a large baby, but I'm sure your OB's will go over that.

You can still have bread and pasta, but you just have to make sure you get the same amount, within guidelines, for every meal. If you fail the 3 hour, you will probably either take a class, or see a nutritionist to help you through the diet. My OB's do both.
