I have to do my glucose test next Thursday. :(
So not looking forward to it. I remember how awful it was with my first pregnancy. Hopefully we will get good results!

Mine was EASY! Tasted good too. I got the orange one, she also had fruit punch and lemon-lime (kinda like flat sprite).

how long ago was your first pregnancy? I heard they've changed a LOT in just the last few years.

Really tasted like those little hug juices that kids get. I mean it's not delicious, but with 5 minutes to drink it - EASY. However, I don't have any problems, no morning sickness, no cravings or anything. The only thing that really makes me pregnant is this baby in my belly. I had serious issues with energy the first trimester but nothing since. No other symptoms, oh but I don't get AF once a month either.

Oh and another tip, I eat all day every day so when I heard you're not suppose to have sugar before you go in, I just did mine early in the am so I was kinda hungry - getting anything in me felt GREAT! :)

They told me I could have a light breakfast. Like a piece of fruit. I have to be at the office by 8:30 but I can drink it whenever since they sent it home with me. I just have to be there within 40 min of drinking it. The hug drinks aren't to bad. Maybe if I just chug it it won't be awful lol. I've had just about every symptom this pregnancy. My main one atm is energy... I have none. And my sugar drops a little. So this test is really important this time.

They said you could have fruit? I wasn't allowed that, they said if I need something no sugars, not even natural. Just toast or something plain. Good luck! Hopefully you pass this with flying colors!

They don't want me having any carbs before the test because carbs turn into glucose and they want accurate results. I probably just won't have breakfast before. The test is early so I might just wait until after to eat. I'm hoping the results are good as well. Thank you :)

I know I'm not supposed to drink anything except water that morning. But they told me it didn't have to be fasting.
