    It does seem quite common then to fail first one. Thanks

    My obstetrician believes the first GD test is too unreliable so makes all his patients to the big one first up.

    I've only ever done the two hourly one. My dr feels that while the reliability of both is around 75%, he believes the GTT is better of the two.

    I failed the first by .2 (I was 8.2). Midwives and diabetes educator at the hospital wanted to put me on insulin. I resisted and sought a second opinion.

    Passed the second.

    If you aren't comfortable with an outcome always seek a second opinion.

    Sorry for not replying sooner. I did the 2nd one last Monday and I officially failed. Cut off is 8.0 and I got 8.0. I have already cut my carbs down to 200 a day. Gp appt on thurs to discuss. It's unlikely I will get an appt before about 35weeks (30 now). So hopefully my gp (shared care) will just say go for the next two antenatal appts at hospital instead and maybe they can just check my bgl when I am there, or I can do at work. Thanks heaps for everyone's imput

    My first test results came back today and I was 8.2, but my midwife said the highest part of the normal range is 7.8, however I have just read on this thread 8.0 is the cut off.

    does public vs private make a difference or is it a state based thing? In in SA.

    can someone let me know what it means when you say 8 is the cut off. Is this after the 2 hours?
    The reason I ask is that I had mine over a week ago. Results sent to the Ob and of course tell me nothing. But I peeked at the numbers. Fasting was 5.6 then after an hour was 8.5 - does this mean I failed? I don't know what the number was after 2 hours because they didn't write anything down in front of me.

    I failed first and passed second. I think it's pretty common.
