Diabetes Test *Updated with Results!* *UPDATED AGAIN WITH BAD NEWS*

Ugh, I had to fast all morning, and then drink 10 oz of that glucose drink!  I get my blood drawn soon but I feel like CRAP now, ty.  And I don't get to eat until after my whole appt. is done at 3.  YUCK.

So they finally called me back to let me know it all looks good.  Thank goodness!  But I am getting anemic, so here's to iron pills...

BAD NEWS: Got a call from my OB, he fired his frickin nurse.  She had my test results mixed up with someone else!  So I'm not anemic, but I did have a bad diabetes test.  I have to go take the three hour one next week, and holy crap I just don't want it to go bad b/c I'm under enough stress and medical issues as it flippin' is!  Do I really need diabetes, as well?  REALLY!?!  I was in perfect health until I got pregnant!  That's WHY we chose now to have our second child.  GRRRR  and now i've been off and on partial and full bedrest, had a blood clot, got diagnosed with a stupid blood/metabolic disorder, have a hernia on the left side that hurts so bad...  I'm doing everything right, and nothing is going well!  Just 3 more months to go...

LOL, ty all.  I got the blood draw, and got sick right after.  The nurse said it's good I held it in, b/c if I got sick before I'd have had to do it again!

Results tomorrow morning, but I feel pretty good most the time so I'm thinking they'll be normal.  :)

I didn't think it was that bad. The drink was nasty, but I only had to do the 1 hr glucose and I passed it. No 3 hour GTT for me :)

Lucky!  That's what we did for my first, but this time they wanted the long test with me drinking the entire bottle. Totally wasn't prepared for how sickening it was by the last few gulps.  At first I just thought it tasted like a melted popsicle, but the more I had to drink the worse it got!

Glad you passed yours!  I hear the whole gestational diabetes thing can be a real pain.

I still had to drink the whole bottle...in like 5 minutes. I drank it in the 5 minutes and then waiting an hour and they drew my blood and I was done.
