Guess what, ladies?

I finally got to drink that "lovely" drink for my gestational diabetes testing today. I had a choice between orange and fruit punch flavors. Definitely went with fruit punch! I didn't think the drink was so bad until I started to get that thick feeling in the back of my throat. Eww.

Waiting that 30 minutes to be able to drink some water went by slowly.

The hour wait was slow...

I finally got my blood drawn at 12:30pm. Hoping that my results come back great. I don't think my doctor will call me unless something is up with the results. I'm just glad this test is done and over with.

Yeah, that test is disgusting. I had to take mine a few weeks ago, except it was clear and tasted like VERY thick Sprite. I passed too, but barely. They said one point over and I would have had to take the 3 hour test.

I hope you pass with flying colors so you don't have to drink that stuff again. BTW...did it make you sick to your stomache?

Ewww back in August when I was pregnant with Roald I had that test and it tasted similar to warm, flat orange soda. I did drink it pretty quickly and the guy commented on that, lol. It was disgusting. Then after that test was done I had 7 tubes of blood drawn. That morning STANK!

That is by far the worst test they make us do. Fruit punch is the 2nd worst flavor. I think the orange kills your stomach worse than any of them. By far the lemon-lime is the easiest to get down and stay down for future knowledge. (especially for the 3rd test)

I kind of forgot about that test until recently. Yeah...the lemon lime is the easiest to get down, especially if you have to drink the whole thing during the 3 hour test.

No, not like I wanted to throw up... just that gross, thick feeling in the back of my throat.

I hope I do pass. I didn't even know about a 3 hour test! My goodness. I can't imagine sitting around the lab for three hours.... I could barely do an hour!
