I had my glucose screening test done today (just the one hour) and 30 minutes into I totally passed out. This can't be good, right? I'm freaked out that I failed the test. I actually did fail the one hour with DS but passed the 3 hour, so maybe that will happen again. But I didn't faint last time! Oy.

Besides for that bit of drama, baby girl looks good! Head down as of now and measuring a week ahead!

Sorry you had a rough time with it! FWIW, I nearly passed out (I just ended up vomiting and getting really dizzy) and my midwife said, given that reaction, she would be shocked if I failed the test and would be less surprised to see it come back hypoglycemic. In any case, I haven't gotten a phone call from the birth center and I did my test a week ago, so I'm tentatively assuming it was just fine.

Speaking for myself, a lot of my issues have to do with a general anxiety when it comes to needles and veins. The same thing happens with normal blood draws for me if I don't lie down while it's being done. I've never thrown up before and have never had a problem while laying down, but I think the glucose drink just exacerbated issues I have anyway. I would try not to let my experience freak you out.

Sorry you had a rough experience today...I really do hope that you pass the test though, and I'm glad the baby looks good.

I've been avoiding this very test because of nausea and vomiting (I wouldn't be able to keep the syrup down), but am totally dreading it now. Oh the joys!

oh my gosh! I guess you were in a good place to faint :-) Did they say why they thought you might have fainted?? The drink made me feel really sick... I think that if I wouldn't have had anything in my stomach I wonder how it would've made me feel.

They told me that it was a normal reaction and it didn't mean anything... but of course I'll still worry. Last pregnancy I didn't pass the 1 hour so I'm kinda expecting that again.
