3 Hour Glucose

I failed my 1 hour glucose test, so I had to do the 3 hour! I knew it was going to be bad, since you have to fast. I get hypoglycemic symptoms when I don't eat, so I was NOT looking forward to it! As I was driving in to the lab, I started to get some of the symptoms. I was hoping to get the drink fast so that they would go away. Well, I guess I didn't get the drink fast enough, because the first hour was pure hell. I didn't get all shaky, sweaty, and light-headed though, which was good. But I did feel awful and couldn't concentrate!

When I went back so they could draw my blood she asked how I was feeling, and I told her. I then told her I get hypoglycemic episodes and her response was,
Well the drink has sugar in it, so you should be ok."
Um, yeah. I just told you I felt awful.

However, after that I did start to feel better. The last hour and a half wasn't so bad. But even after the test, and after I ate, I still felt off all day. It was no fun! I think I will find out my results tomorrow. I really hope I passed!! I have a feeling I probably didn't though. I am at a higher risk because I have twins and because of PCOS. We'll see!

You will most likely be fine because Dr. O'Hara called me the same day of the 3-hour to tell me that I failed. Good luck!
