Glucose Test...

My friend is taking this right now so it made me think of this...

When I took this back in 2004 my doctor let me eat 25 jelly beans but three years later when I was preggo with my son I had to drink the orange drink that wasn't bad in taste but tasted like flat orange soda. So how many of you got to eat jelly beans or something more fun than the orange drink???

  • I have never heard of eating jelly beans for a glucose test.

  • The orange drink with all 5 pregnancies, but I wouldn't call it fun - I would have preferred the jelly beans!

  • I refused that test. But I have heard of doctors allowing for things like a pancake breakfast or candy to be eaten instead.
