Getting my 1 hour glucose test

To test for gestational diabetes. That orange flavored chemical **** storm of sugary nastiness almost made me throw up.
I just want breakfast
There is really no point to this thread. Just complaining

Sorry Mama . Yeah that stuff tastes terrible....I always have some tea afterwards, it gets rid of the yucky flavor.

So did I!
I just got home. They had to poke me like 3 times and dog around to get a vein. I have deep veins that roll. It's fun..

I didn't do that testing. It's not exactly accurate or healthy. I just tested myself for three days, my insurance even covered the cost of the meter.

Also, this belongs in Pregnancy.

Sorry I put in wrong category!

I thought about not doing it but I didn't know why else to do. It definitely didn't seem healthy.

Here, they don't require you to fast for the 1 hour but I do. I know too many people who ended up with numbers that were high despite only eating protein beforehand. It is nasty and I don't want to repeat that test at all, so I play it safe.
