Newer recommendation: Is that non-diabetic pregnant women undergo a 2-hour 75-gram oral glucose tolerance test at 24-28 weeks of gestation. Women should be fasting for this test, and a fasting glucose level should be included. If any one of the following values are abnormal, you have gestational diabetes: fasting at 92 or above (mg/dl), one-hour at 180 or above, two-hour at 153 or above. ...Read more
A Drink/Bloodwork: Some obs do this at their office, or you go to a lab. The test is done first thing in the morning after you have not eaten overnight. They draw your blood to check the "fasting" (pre-breakfast) blood sugar, then you drink a bottle of liquid with 75 grams of sugar. Blood is drawn at 1, 2, and 3 hours after the drink.

I read that anything under 70mg/dl on the one hour glucose test for gestational diabetes is low and means hypoglycemia.Mine is 66. What does this mean?
Irregular glucose levels on insulin with gestational diabetes do they induce you and why have i been told induced at 38 weeks then go to 40 weeks ?
