Re: Glucose Test :(

I have only did the three hour test and failed. I have GD It is not fun to take the test. You fast overnight drink the same drink and they test you when you arrive and every hour after. It made me really sick. If you can have someone drive you do. I was pretty light headed afterwards. With GD you do have to eat a lot of protein but there are more options than you think. You can still have fruit and cereal but they will teach you all of that if needed. Try not to worry too much.

How did you find out you had developed it later? What symptoms were you having?

Re: Glucose Test :(

Oh goodness, that was AWFUL. 7 bottles of water, 8 jabs, 2 blown veins, and them finally going into my wrist (sooooo painful) and the test is finally done. Now I just have to wait for the results.

Thanks for all your support ladies!

Re: Glucose Test :(

They forced the water because they couldn't find my veins. She kept walking past me and putting another bottle of water in my hands.

But thankfully, I PASSED! No GD. Thank goodness! I have no idea why I failed the first with such a high number but I am so happy not to have to worry about it.

I went in for a routine every 2 week apt and the nurse came in with a finger poke saying there was high sugar in my urine and my finger poke had a blood sugar level of 220! they check for sugar in your urine at every appt when they check for protein. so it will be easy to catch. as for symptoms i didnt really have any other than weight gain and the fact my baby was measuring 7 weeks ahead! fatigue was a factor alot but i thought that was just cause i was preggo! lol i was also very thirsty all the time and going potty alot! i failed my 3 hour this time on monday luckily by not a whole lot so no meds for now...just a new diet. my son was born a month early weighing over 8 lbs LOL

Water won't effect your bs reading, it just makes it harder to get your veins if you don't have it! They should have given you all you want!

8 lbs at 4 weeks early, my goodness! Did they induce you early or did he come on his own? I don't get urine checks at each appt (only at the first two appts) but I have my one hour this Tuesday. Sorry you failed your three hour but at least its just diet changes and not insulin! Take good care of yourself, mama :-)
