Re: GTT 1 Hour- Anyone else get exhausted after this?

Becca-I don't know a ton, but my understanding is that you can have them treat you as if you do have GD if you're willing to do the diet and exercise changes without doing the 3-hour test. I would definitely call your OB/MW and ask about other options!

Re: GTT 1 Hour- Anyone else get exhausted after this?

Lisa I took the test a week ago Monday. I assume they would have the results by now and called if I was. But you never know around here, LOL. We will see today at my appointment. I would not have had such a problem with it if I didn't have to sit and wait so freaking long, LOL. I much prefer drinking it at home and coming in just before.

Good luck Becca!

Re: GTT 1 Hour- Anyone else get exhausted after this?

Thanks for the input... I'll just have the test done and see what happens. I just feel like it's a waste of time- they don't give me the option to drink at home so I'll have to sit in the clinic for an hour and wait and then they scheduled my regular appointment right after it so I'll probably end up being there all morning.

Good luck to anyone else who still needs to take it

Just got home from the 3 hour... They wouldn't let me leave the waiting room. I am tired and got food on the way home so I didn't have to make anything... hopefully I will get the results soon...

If you get the option of the red vs the orange... the red is a little better

I hope it went well! I never got the option of red. Only Orange or Lime and both are gag worthy. I guess that's the silver lining in bombing the 1hr so badly. I don't have to do the 3hr LOL

Re: GTT 1 Hour- Anyone else get exhausted after this?

I took mine on Monday and they told me within seconds of drawing the blood! They put it in a little machine and told me my iron count and GD results!

I've had to take the test 2x this pregnancy because I had GD last time. The first test I passed and they told me I wasn't off the hook yet. But I passed the 2nd test too!!

I've noticed a couple of you mamas that failed it are preggo with girls... did you have GD with your boys? I've heard there's some sort of connection. Not specifically with girl pregnancies but with girl pregnancies after boys... make sense?

I didn't have it with any of my 1st 3 boys but had it with my baby girl and now I'm pregnant with a boy again and I passed!! Crazy huh?

Chelli- I am really glad you didn't have to take the three hour. It stinks!

Bree- I did have a boy and now I am having a girl- so maybe. I failed with ds by just a little but easily passed the 3 hour.

I really hope I get the results tomorrow... that would be great!
