Uggg! Mostly failed my first gestational diabetes test...

So I had my gestational diabetes one hour test two days ago. Everything else is great but I am in the "gray" zone for this test. They want below 135 and I was 155, which she said was not horrible but they need me to do the 3 hour test. I do that next Thursday.

I know it's not a bad number, I know, and I know lot of people need the three hour and pass it, but I'm not happy about it. I am so careful with my diet... though I have been craving sugar. I have been trying to keep it to fresh fruit but I'd be happy to eat a whole tub of frosting, THOUGH I HAVE NOT!

Now I am a bit worried since my Dr. did say that the baby was "big", but I did not question this part, but I know that can be an issue/indicator. Weight is not an issue with me and I have only gained 10 pounds so far. (But the Dr.s say that is fine since baby is a good size.)

So, though I know I just posted a question, I'd love to read any personal info on this, passing or failing, and what happens next...

Thank you all,
Sara H
