28 weeks and I flunked!

Well here I am at 28 weeks! I went to the doctor today and FLUNKED my glucose test. I failed by 25 points, which I have no idea what that means exactly, but what I do know is that on Tuesday I have to go sit at a lab for 3 hours while they feed me more sugar water and poke my arm a bunch of times. I'm pissed at myself for not passing, even though I'm not sure if I could have prevented it in any way. It upsets me that I have been trying to take care of myself by not over-doing the sweets and exercising on a pretty frequent basis, I've been self-conscious of being a fatso pregnant lady, and now I feel totally unhealthy. I'm kind of worried, but I won't let myself get too worked up over it until Tuesday is over and I find out my true results.
On the positive side, my uterus measured exactly on target for 28 weeks, and our little Ali's heartbeat was strong and regular! So at least I'm carrying a healthy baby, even if my body sucks at breaking down glucose.

No, there is nothing you can do - don't worry. You couldn't have prevented it and it doesn't matter how well you ate, exersized etc. It's just how your body is. Hopefully you will pass the 3 hour, that's what happened to my best friend. She just had to watch what she ate and test her blood sugar but she said it wasn't too bad.
