Thanks now I'm just waiting for the results. Im well familiar with thr test. This is my second baby and I had to take the one hour and three hour test. Its not too bad but is pretty nasty... let you all know if I passed.

No your supposed to get it at 24 weeks. But because my last appointment I was 23 weeks 5 days. and I had to reschedule my appointment so i am just now taking it at 30 weeks. Its not normal to take it that late :/

I didn't mind the drink but it gave me the worst stomach ache... they had to poke me 5 times to draw blood for it. I was so over it by the time I left.

Its a routine test for gestational diabetes. Its diabetes brought on my pregnancy and you have to treat it like diabetes if you haven't it. Yous just have to drink a orange drink wait an hour and they draw your blood. They have certain cut off numbers.. usually if you fail the one hour test tou go back and do the three hour where the draw your blood once an hour for three hours. I pray I passed the one hour because last Tim I had to take the three hour... its not that bad but I hated being hospital bound for three hours plus I hate the whole blood draw deal. I passed the three hour with my first luckily. But today it wasnt bad at all because my husband, daughter and I just left for the hour so I didn't have to sit alone in the waiting room anf then came back for thr blood draw. (:

Holy crap! Did you mean to say 14 tubes??? I had other test done too.. they took 4 tubes. Judt the routine stuff though.
7757724 tn?1396279586
I passed and all my other blood work looked good. Thank God!

Yeah 14 tubes:/
one vein they took 12 tubes then I drank that stuff waited an hour in the waiting room and then took another tube of blood from my other arm then waited another hour in the waiting room & they took blood from the other arm in a diff vein! I was there from 930-1. Fun day!  Haha hoping everything comes back good I'm glad yours did (:
