Well I went for my glucose screening today...and I dont know what everyone is complaining about I didnt think the drink was bad at all....actually got it down in 3 drinks.....maybe trying to make up for not being able to drink LOL I will get the results back Thur but I'm ACTUALLY NOT WORRIED ABOUT IT.
Lisa I know yours is coming up it is NO BIGGIE...the drink was actually a nice change from WATER
so what does this stuff actually taste like Sheila? Prepare the nervous nelly! I can't imagine it tastes any worse then the stuff they make you drink before surgery to do a bowel prep - ugh - that's stuff is hideous - all I have to do is think about it and it makes me shiver - ugh
Yep mine is at the end of next week. I'm glad it isn't too bad tasting - it just looks like orange soda to me (maybe a little more sugary?). Did you fast beforehand or not?? I'm not worried about it either - I guess if you fail the longer 3-hour test you mainly have to watch what you eat...I don't think they go straight to insulin unless it is not controllable by diet. Anyways - happy third trimester (tomorrow)!!!! I can't believe it!!! The only thing I am thinking about doing now is scheduling an elective 3d/4d ultrasound. They have a weekday special for $120 and you get a 20 minute dvd and a bunch of pictures. Hubby is not sure if we should or not but I miss seeing my little peanut!! I am so curious as to what she looks like now!!!
Well I'm glad I got the warning.. I had know idea about this test, and I hate yucky surprises.. Much better to go in prepared..
Things are going really well with me. His name is Jacob this week. If I like I name, I start calling him that and see how it fits. Jacob is really growing on me. And I figure later he can go by Jack, Jake or Jay if he ever chooses to. Last two days, I feel him moving all day and into the evening. I just can't get enough of that.
Girls...the drink is kinda yummy after all the water I drink daily. It tasted like a watered down orange soda..not even tooo sweet, but I eat ALOT of candy (especially the sweet stuff not so much chocolate) so I definately have a sweet tooth and it is not thick or anything gross
Hannah I like Jacob :O) you'll have to let us know if it sticks
Lisa, I HATE NEEDLES....so I'm not getting a flu shot. let me know if you go for the 3D/4D U/S. All things considered I'm kinda lucky I got to see her last week and will again in 2 weeks but the light duty SU@KS. Hopefully in 2 weeks all will be good. They look the same at this point, and since my DR appt last week was unexpected I had no water and U/S was blurry
our lil site is getting so busy it is good to hear from all of you. Have a great week
