Gestational Diabetes Test

I had my 16 week check up and had to take my glucose tolerance test. My family has a history of diabetes so they made me take it early. I forgot how nasty the sugary drink is! It ended up making me really sick all day Friday. I have my fingers crossed that I don't have to take the 3 hour test.

Baby's heart rate was in the 160s and I got to hear movement! I finally have my big ultrasound scheduled for September 15. Can't wait!

Yucky. I'm debating on if I'm going to take it or not. My family does not have a History of it and the past two pregnancies I never had it. I'm eating a lot more healthy with more fruits and veggies in my diet so I'm really leaning on not taking it.

Sorry you had to take it early but crossing my fingers you pass! That's great the babes heart rate is doing good and you got to hear movement!

I took mine a couple weeks ago and havent heard anything back so im assuming all was fine which I was sure it would have been. Hopefully yours comes back fine. What flavor did you get? I got the punch and it tasted like on of those kid mondo drinks or something, I dont know how I drank those as a child! lol.

Yay for hearing the hb and movement Smile and yay on the big U/S date!

I'll probably be taking mine soon, I had GD last pregnancy and praying I don't get it again this time! I remember the drink making me feel funky for a day or so. Hope you don't have to do the three hour!

I hope you pass! I take the 1 hour one at the end of September. I am not looking forward to feeling horrible the rest of the day.

Good luck! I didn't actually mind the drink--but i always get the lemon lime and drink it cold and its almost like a really sweet sprite.

I don't mind it, either! Biggrin

I have no idea when I take it but last time my sugars were really good so I'm not worried.
