Glucose Test????

Hi im due to have my test today, but instead of the cola drink, they are giving me 18 jellybeans to eat instead, have any of you done this? my first pregnancy i took the cola drink and just didnt feel good after, but i didnt have diabetes, just wondering if any body has done this and is it easier.

  • My last pregnancy they were talking about doing this, but that was over 2 years ago. I'm glad they are finally doing it because some of those drinks are terrible! Especially the coke one!

    I've had 3 tests now but they were all with the syrup drink. Guess it just depend where you go :) Lucky!

  • I ate 25 jellybelly's for my glucose test. So much easier to "swallow" than that drink they give. I loved the jelly belly's. Yum!!!
