I'm so happy to be switching providers! I had my consult with our local birthing center and midwives and I LOVE THEM!! I'm sad I can't actually birth there (FL law, can't VBAC at a birthing center, only at home or hospital) but now the practice has a CNM on staff who has hospital rights (another FL law, licensed midwives don't have hospital rights). So everything is working out!

I actually have my first appointment with them on Thursday and that includes my glucose test....which again makes me so happy! LOL I don't have to drink any sugary crud! They gave me a list of a specific breakfast to eat 2 hours before my appointment. I LOVE THEM!!!! I have a feeling the rest of my pregnancy will be less stress on wondering if I'll actually be able to attempt the VBAC that I want!

Has anyone else been able to eat the breakfast for their glucose test? If so, what did yours consist of? I have to have 4 oz of UNSWEETENED juice....does that mean sugar free? Or should the bottle just say unsweetened? I have regular OJ in the house, but it's "naturally sweetened"....so confusing!!

Im pretty sure naturally sweetened means the same as unsweetened. As alot of OJ they add extra sugars too it.

Sounds awesome, congrats!!!

I would check the juice ingredients. Sometimes they just use a less refined sugar/sweetener and call it "natural". Like [sugar] cane juice or grape juice concentrate or something. That is basically sugar too though.

Yes I did the breakfast this time and with Everett! They told me 2 eggs, 2 pieces of toast with butter, 8oz of milk, and 8oz of OJ. I'm glad you found providers you love!

that's exactly the same one I'm having on Thursday (except only 4oz of OJ)! What kind of OJ did you drink? Just regular OJ? (I'm so used to drinking Trop50 lol it's going to be so thick and sweet!)

I'm jealous that you get to have the breakfast. I wish my midwives did that
