Ok, so Thursday I have to go have a glucose test done. I am supposed to not eat for 2 hours before and then I am supposed to drink that nasty stuff. What does it taste like? How did you feel afterwards? Do you know what the glucose number should be afer? I'm scared that its going to make me throw up and I will have to do it all over again.

To me, it tasted like a Coke but with an extra pound of sugar added in. It was disgusting, but bearable. I felt a little sick after, but I didn't pass out. I'm sure you'll be fine. Don't worry about it too much.

I'm not good with really sweet stuff while I am pregnant. Dr.Pepper even makes me feel sick at my stomach.

I thought it tasted like flat Sunkist soda too. I was a little loopy and nauseated from the sugar rush, but I didn't throw it back up. I was sick for like 2 days after though. I don't know what the number is supposed to be at. My test came back abnormal, so they wanted to do the 3 hour test - I asked if I could just get a glucose meter and keep track of it that way...my doc wrote a prescription for it and that is what I've been doing for the past 2 weeks.

I was worried I would throw it up too. Don't worry. You'll do fine.

I drank the sprite looking one. I had the orange kind with my son and puked that up, so I was not doing that again...I needed to do the 1hr one and the 3hr one. For the 1hr you shouldn't need to fast. Just eat protein in the morning, like bacon or something of that sort. Eggs, etc. I'm a vegetarian, so I ended up fasting anyway, lol. Your number shouldn't be higher than 140, I believe.

I remember it being salty.  It was awful!!  I puked it 3 times before I finally got it to stay down.  Yuck!  You have to keep it down the ENTIRE hour.  I am so not looking forward to it this time!

I guess that this proves that every doctor is different. :)  I was told to fast, no breakfast, and my numbers couldn't be higher than 120.  Crazy, huh???
