I was borderline failing with the glucose tests with my first two children. With my son, I was a few points over the threshold and took the 3-hour, and passed that one (though my results were odd), and I squeaked by passing with my 2nd child. Preeclampsia with both, while in labor and suspected IUGR with my son.
We'll see what happens this time.
What you have doesn't necessarily mean you'll go down that path again! Will pray. I know it's stressful no matter what.
DS born Dec. 2008 at 38.5w gestation. Mild PE diagnosed 3 hours before he was born
DD born Dec. 2010 at 40w1d. BP was slightly elevated since 37w, and climbed while in labor (started on my own). Severe PE diagnosed hours after DD born.
DD born Sept. 2013 at 38w. Induced (and I had to fight for it!) due to high blood pressure. No protein, but had brisk reflexes and clonus after delivery. Doc gave me a mild preeclampsia diagnosis anyway and said I'm likely to be a chronic hypertensive later in life.
