Yesterday I had my 27/28 week appointment and had the dreaded glucose test. You know, the one you have heard horror stories about. The one where they make you drink this awful liquid and then take your blood an hour later to test for gestational diabetes?
Well I am here to say that.... it was a BREEZE! There was nothing bad about the drink I was so hesitant about. Nothing. at. all. From all of the terrible things I have heard, I was expecting to have to force down a huge amount of sugar-water mixture, that tasted worse than dog poop, while plugging my nose.
It tasted like a flat orange soda. And it was only 10 ounces.
