Re: Failed 1 hour glucose

If you can't pass the 1 hour with a 50 gram load, you surely won't pass it with a 75 gram load.

I was not very strict with my diet and baby was only 7#8 oz's and my sugars were pretty stable, so no big deal.

Good luck!
That was really my thought process, though ours is 100g gram. SO I'm like obviously I will fail the first hour no doubt, and it seems the second hour can't be too hard to fail.
