glucose test. boo.

Photobucket
Today, I have been dreading my glucose test! You know, the test (screening for gestational diabetes) where they make hungry little pregnant girls fast for 12 hours and THEN make them drink a nasty, super-sugary fluorescent colored beverage, and THEN wait for 45 minutes (just long enough to make them feel totally sick and light-headed and sort of like they want to die) and THEN stick a needle in them and take out a bunch of their blood? You know, that test. Well, it's first thing tomorrow morning. Boo. And it gets worse. The flavor they gave me? Fruit Punch. Ew and double ew. Somebody at the doctor's office has it in for me...I just know it. Wish me luck!

Believe me. it's better than being in Germany and having your finger pricked at EVERY SINGLE APPOINTMENT! I could never be diabetic. Those who are are my heroes. The worst part is that tingly feeling it leaves in your finger for the rest of the day... (Am I sounding too dramatic? Yeah, probably.)

Oh my gosh, I remember 1QI didn't drink any soda my whole pregnancy, except for that glucose test orange crush stuff. After not drinking pop for so long I thought that stuff was going to disintegrate my esophagus t burned SOOOOOOOO bad!

So I got the choice of eating a chocolate bar and soda or having a glass of orange juice before my test. That little bottle of stuff doesn't look too good. But I hope it goes well.

I must be weird because I don't mind that test (or drink) at all. The only part that sucks is sitting around for an hour before they take your blood... Hope it all went A-OK today :)

Just be glad you only have to do it once! With Jackson, I had to take it twice because they messed up and then I failed it! So then I had to take the 3 hr. one where you fast, go in and they take your blood once, then make you drink that drink and then they take your blood EVERY hour for 3 more hours!!!!...and not just a finger prick, like a whole vial each time...It was hell and I thought I would pass out and/or die!!
