So I got the call yesterday that I failed my 1 hr Glucose Tolerance Test and now get to come in and do the three hour. My husband and I are both pretty surprised at this because we have been really good about eating healthy, getting exercise and I have not gained a whole lot of weight so far.
He went online to see if there was something we did to make my blood sugar higher than it should have been and read that I should have been fasting. I checked on my bottle of juice that morning and it only said not to eat after taking the drink, so I had my normal breakfast of cereal and 2 oranges (my pregnancy craving is oranges...) and then about 10 minutes later took my drink. Would this have caused me to have more of a spike than I should have? I plan on fasting for 12 hours before the next tests (which is the standard time frame when getting a fasting lab drawn). Anyone been through this before?
