Failed my 1 hr glucose test.....

And am scheduled for the 3 hour on Wednesday My dr said the cutoff is 139 and mine was 157 even after fasting prior to the test. I've been instructed to fast again not having anything after 9pm Tuesday. Any other advice????

FTR I failed the 1 hr w/ DS1 and passed the 3 hr only by a couple points. He weighed 8 lbs 7 oz and was a few days early.

I failed the one hour with the same score with ODS. I didn't fast before...actually had a bag of famous Amos running from a midterm to my glucose screening (d'oh!). I did pass my 3 hour, though, with fasting. I don't know if there is anything else you can do, but good luck!

I passed my first 3hr at 7wks then failed my 1hr and passed the 2nd 3hr. This was my 5th pregnancy and passed every other test! Also 2 of my babies were considered macrosomic even though they weren't "that" big! (9lb-2oz at 40wks & 8lb-10oz but he was a 37wker) and my 6th was 8-10 at almost 38wks. My friend with GD'a baby was 9lb at 41wks...

Is it necessary to limit my carbs/sugar the day before even though I'll be fasting after 9pm?

I don't think limiting your carbs the day before will make a big difference--that's what my midwife told me. Just make sure to fast for 12 hours before the test. That's what I did and I passed my 3 hr!
