You failed your 1-hour glucose test – now what?
What happens if you fail the glucose test when pregnant? Prepare for next steps with this guide
You’ll undergo many blood tests during your pregnancy. However, the pregnancy glucose test is a rite of passage.
Unlike previous bloodwork, this second-trimester test isn't an in-and-out affair. Instead, this test requires you to have your blood drawn. Then, you’ll drink a sugary beverage that tastes like flat orange, lime, or berry soda. After waiting in the office for an hour, you’ll be called back for another blood draw.
