Glucose Tolerance Test....

Big. fat.

FAIL.

Yep, I failed the 1 hour test. my levels were at 171, with the cutoff being at 140. Boo. Now I get to go in for the 3 hour test. I guess everything was going pretty well in this pregnancy, SOMETHING was bound to go wrong.

That stinks! Could the starbucks maybe affected the #? I bet you'll pass the 3 hr one... it just stinks that you have to do it at all.

Yep, the Starbucks more than likely screwed her results. I failed the 1h ggt and I had fasted but passed the 3 hour. You will more than likely pass your 3h gtt if you wait to have Starbucks after the test.

i failed the first one with lola and passed the 3 hour one no problem. i didn't take it with xi because the false test results are actually higher than you'd expect. i'm betting the starbucks through it as well. you'll have to fast for the 3 hour one...totally sucks because you go in there starving! LOL don't let it get you down...seriously, it very well is likely that you have a false reading on your test. you are not dizzy...no tingling in your hands...no massive headaches that make it so you can't see straight...or lingering headaches...those are the signs that your blood sugar is off as they affect your blood pressure too...just relax...you are going to be just fine my dear..;)

NO NO NO!!!!!!! I hated the 3 hr test...that just blows...bring a good book...or your laptop if you have one (I don't...but one of the gals doing the 3hr with me did...and she watched a movie...but didn't feel like sharing..boo) :o)

Hey!! The only thing I get at starbucks these days (only because I have a giftcard from Christmas!) are peppermint hot chocolates...YUM.

I failed by two points. Two silly points...but I'm really thinking that starbucks did you in.

Ugh.

I'm so sorry you have to go through that...it ain't fun...but it sounds like you have a good plan with the protein! :o)
