GD results are in...


With all good news comes some bad news, of course.
Since I did this one early and failed the one hour, I have to go straight to the three hour at my next appointment (was originally scheduled for the one hour again).

Here are the results:
Fasting = 77
Pass is 95 or lower

Hour 1 = 156
Pass is 180 or lower

Hour 2 = 115
Pass is 155 or lower

Hour 3 = 46 (she said this was too low and was a little concerning but, it's a pass)
Pass is 140 or lower

My own monitor was pretty off on all numbers really.
When I started to read up on glucose monitors yesterday (expecting to fail and figured I better do some research) I found that none of the OneTouch monitors have very good reviews at all. The biggest complaint was how wildly inaccurate they are. So, I was planning to ask for a prescription for a different name brand that had great reviews.

My next OB appointment is 5/13 (27w) and, I'll have to sit through the three hour again but, I'm feeling pretty confident now it won't be a problem.



  1. Yay that you passed this one!!! Yes, I agree that 46 two hours after food is not very good, but it's kind of hard when you haven't consumed any protein or fat with the sugar to keep your body from dropping SO low. I hope the next 3-hour test is passed, too.

    1. Thank you! I'm feeling good about the next test. I feel like it's going to be okay.

  2. Hurrah! That was some crazy variance between your test and theirs - I'm glad the official results were different in the right direction!
    That orange crap is terrible - I'm so sorry it looms in your future again!

    1. The three hours of sitting around is probably worse than the drink truth be told. Wish I didn't have to do it again but, it is what it is.

  3. it looks like yours was over by almost 20 on every count. Even more on some. I think next time you should leave it at home!

    1. I agree, I'm not going to bother taking it with me next time. I feel confident I'll pass again so, not as worried as I was before.
