They told me to expect the results this week. Hopefully, the three day weekend doesn't mean mid next week.

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

I took my test last week and still haven't heard my results. Maybe I should call them

I also felt gross about half hour into the test. Almost threw it up (I hate eating/drinking large amounts of sugar, always makes me nauseus).

When you get results back just depends on the lab. My DR got the results the next day...

I definitely think I'll be skipping this if I have more kiddos.

And don't worry too much if you fail, you can still pass the 3-hr test. GL!

I failed... cut off is 130 I had a 155 so now I have to go back for the three hour.... Hopefully, I can go pick up the slip today... I don't want to go to long if I really have it.

I failed as well Robyn but a whole bunch worse than you did. Cut off at 130 and I was at 189. They aren't even bothering with the 3hr for me.

I failed the 1 hour as well by 3 points!
I passed the 3 hour, no problem.

My doctor only calls if you fail, otherwise they tell you results at your next appointment.

When I failed with DS, they called within two days and wanted me to schedule the three-hour test right away.

Robyn, I recommend taking something to do that doesn't take a lot of focus. The three-hour test is twice as much sugar after fasting. My eyes couldn't even focus to read a book. I crocheted aimlessly just to keep myself busy while I was there. It wasn't even a real project since I didn't have any planned.

You just took a major dose of glucose.If you are luckier,your doc didn't make you fast before drinking it. Docs can't even agree on HOW to have women take it

SS mama! It is just your body responding to what they had you drink
What other options are there? Is the test mandatory? I'm supposed to go in next week and do it but I'm dreading more and more.
