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!!
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!
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!
I was perfectly fine. I got the orange one and it taste like flat orange soda.
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 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 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.
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 passed! Yay! Now just have to do it again at 24weeks.
