Don’t freak out. I failed my 1hr test both babies and passed the 3hr test both times. Start eating oatmeal daily to stabilize your blood sugar

Mel Marie try portion control. Try and cut the crabs in half and increase protein and veggies. Try to eat three meals and small snacks in between. That helped me. At least until you can see a nutritionist and get a monitor for your blood sugar
