Glucose Tolerance Test

I had my one-hour yesterday. I just wanted to pass along some advice if you get a choice for the flavor of your glucose drink. Last pregnancy I had the orange flavor--not great, but not terrible. This time I had the fruit punch--it was gross and it burned going down! So, I recommend the orange over the fruit punch.

Re: Glucose Tolerance Test

I'm always down with the orange. It's like flat syrupy Fanta and doesn't resemble hummingbird feeder fluid

Re: Glucose Tolerance Test

Even better than orange is lemon lime. It's like flat sprite. Super syrup-y, but swallow-able.

I gravitate towards orange flavored things when in doubt. I'll have to keep an eye out for the lemon lime one though. Do you think they'd let me add Malibu to it? Kidding of course... *sigh*

Re: Glucose Tolerance Test

I just did mine yesterday. I had the same orange I've had every time and for some reason it was WAY easier to drink this time. Downed it no problem. Now let's just hope I passed lol

Re: Glucose Tolerance Test

When do you have to take the glucose test...? I took one pretty early on, since I'm a little shall we say... "fluffy"... But there's been no mention of the other one, and next time I go I'll be almost 28 weeks. Hm....

Usually around 28 weeks. But it's not set in stone - depends on circumstances too. : )
