  • I got the one that takes hours and you have to fast for. Turned out i was insulin dependent type of diabetic, but ONLY for the time I was pregnant. 2 days After the baby was born they game me the insulin shot and nearly killed me because my body swung back to being non insulin dependent. I am still not on insulin, I control my blood sugar with my diet and it works for me.

  • I had the regular 1 hour one at around 28 weeks, came back normal. Then all of a sudden my baby started measuring HUGE, so they had me do another 1 hour one around 34 weeks, that one came back high. They made me do the 3 hour one a couple of days later, and that one came back normal again.

    It's irritating, and it sucks having to sit around for 3 hours (the 1 hour one isn't too bad), but it's a necessary thing, I suppose.

  • It's not that bad. I had the orange flavor and found it tolerable.

  • I had to do the 4 hour one... twice UGH!! Keep the drink on ice... literally... and if you have to go in for it make them do the same!! The colder the drink the less you taste it! Oh, and drink it thru a straw (bring your own if you have to)... again... you taste it less if you use a straw!! GL!! :o)

  • yeah i had the regular 1 hour one. my blood sugar was only 80 which is normal. i was afraid that my body wouldn't break it down because i don't eat sugar at all...then i remembered there's sugar in fruit which i eat a lot of

  • You don't have to if you are healthy-having a normal pregnancy.

    You might check into that.
