Sugar test

I went for my sugar test and my doctor called and said I have to go for the 2nd one :(
I just tested my sugar at home and it was 6.1
I'm really nervous about the second test

Has anyone else experienced this?

Yup. I had to take the 3 hours test because my number came back just barely over limit. BUT the second test came back completely normal. My doctor said it's pretty common to fail the first one but be fine for the second one. Try not to worry

Happened to me too. Failed first one by a lot! 175 and the cut off was 140 :/ took the 3 hour and it wasn't fun at all! Be sure to bring a protein bar in your purse to devour as soon as your done. Long story short I passed the second one with flying colors so I wouldn't worry! It has happened to a few others I have spoken to as well. Best wishes!!
