glucose screening!

Hello ladies!! I have my glucose screening next week-- I'm 24 weeks! & I've heard horror stories! :( I'm worried I'm gonna throw it up cause it's obviously horrible & I still have morning sickness! Mine never went away! Any tricks or advice to the moms who have had it done already??

Ask for the fruit punch one. It's the least horrible one... you have to drink it fast but don't chug it you will throw up. Good luck:)

It's really not that bad. I've had the Orange and fruit punch before and to me it just taste like flat sugary soda

The colder it is the better it tastes. You get 5 minutes to drink it so no need to chug it. I've only had the orage but it just tastes like flat overly sweet orage soda.
