    Failed 3HR GTT

    Add me to the list.. I failed.. I'm not sure how badly yet. I'm waiting for a call from my Dr. I'm sure the next step is to see a dietician. I've been reading up on it and it sounds like there is quite a debate over treatment vs no treatment.. if it really makes any difference. Anyway, at this point I'm not really concerned. I will make an effort to eat better, but considering I've only gained 6lbs so far, I don't know how much changing they'll want. I will say this - I'm having cake at my baby shower . Take care and good luck to the rest of you that haven't tested yet.

    Way to go girl with your attitude! I'm still awaiting my results and don't know if I will be so up if I fail!
    I do truly believe you and the baby will be fine! I've had a lot of friends go through this and had perfectly healthy babies!
    Way to go on the weight gain too! I'm sad to say I've gained 10! I know it's not a lot, but I've gained more then the last times at this point! Oh well...I'm just praying for a healthy baby!!
    Let us know how it's going.

    Michelle is right, you have a great attitude about this whole thing. As long as the baby is healthy and you are feeling energetic and healthy all is good.

    Enjoy your cake.

    Sorry Erin!
    I am right there with you. I went to see the nurse today and got my monitor and will see the dietician tomarrow. I have been trying to eat better and have not hardly eaten any sugar. I didnt have it with Kaelyn so this is all new to me. I did get ALOT of info today and after what I was given I WILL make a point to be careful. It just plain sucks!!
    YOU go GIRL on your weight gain.. I have already gained 25 pounds!!!

    So sorry that you didn't pass the 3 hr test. At least you are keeping a positive outlook about the while thing though. I am sure that both you and your baby will be just fine. Hopefully the dietician will give you a little more insight.

    I don't blame you for wanting cake at your shower!!! You deserve it girl!!! Enjoy!!!
