I figured there would probably be another, but I forgot to ask the doc. I hope the next one is as good as the first! and I'm glad that my OB's office gives you the drink ahead of time, so you drink it on your own at home and then come in for a blood draw. Saves time! I appreciate that :)

Great number!

That said, they ABSOLUTELY should have you do another test, ask for it if they don't, since gestational diabetes can develop anytime and most commonly develops between 24ish-30ish wks, if I remember correctly from my gestational diabetes class. (I had it in my 2nd prg but not the 3rd, in the 3rd they tested me about 12ish wks and then 27ish wks.) The test stinks, I know, but having undiagnosed gestational diabetes would not be good.

Hope the rest of your pregnancy continues going smoothly!

EE! I am so happy about my 1-hour glucose screener. My level was 87. My OB wanted me to take the test early, at 16w, since with both of my other pregnancies my result was high 130s to low 140s (had to do the 3-hour test with my firstborn, and the results were bizarre but I passed).

I have no idea if I'll have to take the test again closer to the normal test date. But still, I'm really encouraged. Maybe this is an early indication that my body is doing pregnancy right this time? I'll still be on the pre-e lookout of course.

Maybe this one will be pre-e free!
