I just got diagnosed today and I am really worried. I thought I was eating healthy prior to the diagnosis because i was already at risk. Anyone have suggestions? Should I try the 3 hour test again?

Im assuming that you did the test at your doctors office right? Why do it again? Having Gestational Diabetes doesnt neccesarily mean you were eating poorly all it means is that your pancrease cannot pump incilin due to too much sugar, There is sugar in everything! Even milk. I personally had this as well I went and seen a dietitian to learn about portions. You can google sugar diabetes diets and plans. Lots of fruits have sugar in them as well so certain fruits you will only be allowed to have half or maybe like 12 grapes.
