Gestational diabetes
So I'm 8 weeks 3 days pregnant I had my first prenatal check up yesterday and they had me do the glucose test it its my 3rd and last baby I got called today said I failed it so I have to go back Friday to do the 3 hour test I'm freaking out I'm so early I found out at 4 weeks so far its been nothing but problems its gonna be a long pregnancy
Has anyone failed a glucose test then passed the second time ?

Is there a reason why you got one at eight weeks? They don't typically give that until your 24-28weeks.

No i thought it was strange they just said that they had just started testing earlier not sure why but I'm worried now because the nurse pretty much said that most likely I do have it

I had to take the 3 hour test as well. In order to pass I heavily cut back on bread and sweets. I also only drunk water. Whenever I'd eat I flushed it out with glasses of water. Hope this helps.

Don't mess with it. If you have gestational diabetes it's not the end of the world. In fact it is for the wellness of your baby and you to know and to act accordingly. If you have diabetes (gestational or type I or type II) you have to do everything you can to keep your sugars in a normal range. High blood sugars (hyperglycemia) can cause abnormal growth and development of baby and of course you want a healthy baby too.

There must have been a reason for them to test you so early. Did you do a urine test when you went to the doctor? They might have found high levels of glucose in your urine then.
