GTT today!
Mon, 08-30-2004 - 9:09am
I'm sitting here trying to bide the time by posting.... I just finished that lovely orange drink (actually it wasn't nearly as bad as I had heard).... and I'm waiting about 45 minutes before I head to the lab. I am glad that I get to wait the one hour at home rather than in the doctor's office.

I pray that I pass this glucose tolerance test.... things have been going really well for me lately and I want to stay on this lucky streak! I'm probably jinxing myself by saying that!! LOL. Oh well.

Wish me low sugar....


27+ weeks

P.S. I just finished posting this in 2nd trimester.... but am I third trimester now?? I think I'm on the borderline....

Good luck! Hopefully you & the baby tolerate that nasty stuff easily. Nice that you can take it at home. I'm sure that makes it a little less horrible. Let us know how it goes.

Belly rubs!

Good luck wiht the test. I didn't find the drink to be quite as bad as people said. It was like orange crush. You are lucky you get to drink it at home then go to the lab. I had to sit in the lab for the hour and they would not allow me to walk around or anything. The 3 hour is even worse.
