I passed! Yay! Now just have to do it again at 24weeks.
Wow never heard of it being done in the first trimester. I am also short and overweight but doc still did mine this week at 25 weeks. Luckily I passed and I was told I didn't have to fast before hand but was told not to put syrup on my pancakes or have a couple donuts for breakfast.
This time around the drink wasn't so bad I got to choose the flavor. Fruit punch. Was still icky but not nearly as bad as the orange I had with my daughter.
I did one at 6 weeks and failed it miserably. They did it that soon because diabetes runs in my family and they wanted to make sure I wasn't already diabetic. I just did my gestational diabetes test and my results were "Glucose within normal range."
Turns out the first Dr I went to did the test wrong, didn't have me fast nor did they check my glucose before having me drink that nasty stuff.
I had to take it at 8wk with my last pregnancy. I not only failed but found out I am type 2diabtic, not just gestational. I miscarried the following week. I almost passed out after taking the drink. Started spinning, luckily my mom got me to the ground before I did tho. Now I am 32 wks, take daily oral meds n check sugar levels 3-4x a day. But I don't have to take that test.
I did with both of my pregnancies because I have pcos which increases the risk of diabetes. I passed both times. I didn't have an problems with it making me sick. Granted this time I was on Zofran, because everything made me sick. I have my third trimester gtt tomorrow morning.
I was perfectly fine. I got the orange one and it taste like flat orange soda.
My first baby was 9lbs and i had severe polyhydramnios even though i passed my screenings. So when i got pregnant 8 weeks postpartum they did the 3-hour test in my first trimester. I failed. My only side effect was a TERRIBLE headache on my way home from the test. Just remember it is for your health as well as baby. Good luck!
Mine wasnt too bad. I was nervous because I had gastric bypass 2 years ago so I was afraid of dumping and being super sick. I had no side effects and it wasnt as terrible as I imagined. It did taste pretty gross though, like a melted sugary orange popsicle. Good luck!
I did. It was pretty terrible, but O survived. I now have to go so the third trimester one and not looking forward to that either. Good luck!!
