  • I think it taste like orange soda. Hope it goes well. Pregnancy was the only time my sugar was normal.

  • It taste like SUPER sweet Orange Crush but with a slightly less carbonation. If it's even the same one.

  • I had the orange one too and mine tasted a lot like the orange soda at McDonald's. It wasn't too bad for me. Did you ever have to take the 3 hour test? Hopefully you don't have to, it was torture...

  • I didn't think it was too bad actually. After taking the three hour test, the one hour seemed like a breeze lol. Good luck. ;)

  • never had to do the three hour test with my first, hope i dont have to this time around. But I have never had anyproblems with my blood pressure, hope it stays that way, I guess it could go either way when your pregnant!

  • people told me it would taste soooo bad, but to me it didn't. Well actully the first doctor for some reason never did that test not sure why, but I don't go to him anymore personal reasons through my first pregnancy then I got pregnant again and went to this new doctor and he had me do it and I didn't think it was bad at all it tasted like orange pop and he had it in the fridge.

  • Orange to me tasted like flat Sunkist.

    It wasnt completely horrid.

    Just be happy you past it the first time and will most likely pass it again.

    I have failed it twice...went on the do the 3hour test twice failed them...had GD twice

    AND HAVE TO DO IT AGAIN here in two weeks. Will most likely have it again. Sorry I dont feel bad for you...hahahaha
