I'll be drinking one that tastes like orange soda. Hopefully I can handle it. I have to go in sometime next week to do it.

Usually those drinks are so nasty but when I went to take mine I was super thirsty so I was looking forward to it. The nurse gave me fruit punch and it was pretty good at first but towards the end it was torture to drink. UGH!

Yeah, it's not too bad at first, but I'm not good at chugging drinks, even when I'm thirsty. I had a hard time getting it all down in time when I was pregnant with DD. Not looking forward to doing it again next week!

Me too, it wasn't the taste of it that was so gross, it was more so getting the whole thing down within the 5-minute time window. It was the amount of sweet at once, and that I couldn't nurse it like I usually do with drinks.

I got the paperwork to do my test a few weeks ago, but I freaked the night before and didn't go... (hubby couldn't come with me and I'm paranoid of puking in public..)... That was when I was under the care of an OBGYN though... Got myself a MW who doesn't do it...she said there's no point, unless I throw up glucose in my pee or have excessive weight gain or something, in which case we'd try managing my diet better first (which is basically all you have to do if you do come back positive for GD)...the drink just makes you feel crap for the rest of the day.

Fun stuff.

I don't think I'd find the drink too bad, when I was in the UK I had these little sachets of glucose syrup that I'd suck on when I fancied and it just sounds like that...only made more into a drink. Good luck with your glucose tests

mine was fruit punch flavored and I used a draw to drink it. The straw helps it go down better.

Oh man, I had to drink the bigger bottle for the three hour GTT last week, and I spent the first hour after trying SO hard not to upchuck. It actually started to come up a few times, and I was like "no WAY am I coming back to do this another day!"

But I never drink juice or regular soda, so to me it tasted SUPER sweet.
