    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I failed the 1 hr glucose test and am having to do the 3 hour test. Can anyone tell me what happens if I fail the 3 hr test? Does that automatically mean that I have gestational diabetes? or is there another test they do or what?

    it will mean you have gestational diabetes. Your OB will put you on a special diet.

    I know that they dont want you to fast, but I did for the 1 hr and I passed.

    I wish I had fasted. I wouldn't have had to do the 3 hour. And of course, I get the new lab tech...talk about a stab (twice)

    I failed my 3 hr on the last check with DD. they told me I was borderline for GD, not that I actually had it. They just ave me a list of foods to limit to avoid my baby getting too big. I did a decent job at following orders (although I did cheat a few times) and my daughter was a healthy 7lbs 3oz. Don't stress over the 3 hr. I now other people who failed the 1 hr and passed the 3.

    I failed the 1 hour (by a few points) but passed the 3 hour. Chances are you will be fine. If you do fail I think all they do is put you on a special diet. Good luck.
