Blood sugar 172!!!???

I'm 14w6d. My first glucose test was 172 points. The doctor says Anything over 140 is abnormal so I have to do a 3 hour test at the lab. I'm freaking out and nervous! Anyone else had/having this issue and what was your experience and outcome?

Thanks for your response! I fasted for 11 hours because my eyes refused to stay open past 9:30 pm. I'm here at the lab and just finished my 3rd blood draw. The first hour after the first blood draw and glucose drink was the WORST! Thankfully I didn't throw up but I almost did. They let me drink some water which helped. I'm praying that my tests come back ok and I don't have gestational diabetes. Good luck to you!

My obgyn had me take the 3 hr test because I was at 137. For this test you have to fast. I took my test at 7:30 am & I stopped eating at 8:30 the night before. But I was at work so it wasn't an actual meal. Eat a meal high in protein.
