Yucky Orange Drink

I had my one hour fasting glucose test this morning at 8 AM. Good times. I had to drink a little bottle of this lovely orange flavored dextrose drink in 5 minutes time and then wait for an hour in the waiting room for a blood draw to see if I have developed gestational diabetes. Most docs give you the bottle to drink before your next visit and do the draw onsite, but ours makes us go to Quest. So I stopped eating last night at around 8pm, nothing to eat or drink after that, and was starving when I got to the office this morning. It felt like the sugar went right through my system, creating some insane Cash activity and a headache. We'll get the results at my next appointment. Here's hoping that we pass!

    I can't believe they made you fast before the glucose test! thats awful! My Ob would have had a fit if I had fasted before mine.

    Hope the results come back well for you! :)
