I survived Just downed it while I was talking to a colleague so I was distracted Luckily my doc gave it to me ahead of time so i could take it while I was still at work before going to the doc... Only problem was that I didnt' read the instructions on it which said you need to fast 2 hours before, so of course I had my regualr coffee an hour before... doc said the fasting is only a precaustion and it shouldn't affcet the test but she will give me the option of redoing the 1 hr if I fail it, before having to do the 3 hour. So we'll see....
Next on the agenda is the Rhogam shot at 28 weeks. Just keep pokin' me people.

Everywhere does the glucose tests different. So long as you didn't dump the sugar bowl into your coffee you should be fine.
I don't think they made the "Do not eat, drink, or smoke" thing bolded enough on the sheet they gave us. You would be surprised at the number of people that don't get that. I worked at a lab, where the moms came in we did a before glucose draw, and then give them the dink and they can do what ever for an hour, even after we would tell them don't eat or drink anything a lot of people still would. It got to the point where they made us make the moms sit in the waiting area the entire time so we could watch them...
I hope you both passed the test.
Dude I like my orange sugary drank, LOL.
They tried to give me a rhogam shot in the ER with my DS2. Yeah... I'm RH+ (no need for rhogam). They said, "Oh, you need a rhogam shot, so we'll be back shortly with that." I was like, "Umm.. No I don't." She looked at me funny as I recalled my blood type on my red cross blood donor card and how we checked our own blood types/RH-status in a biology lab in college, and I was like, "Seriously, I don't need one. I'm RH+." She said, "I'll check again" and left the room. Came in a few minutes later to tell me that was an error, lol... I still got my fun shots in the butt later, though (steroid shots to develop his lungs in case they had to induce early).
