Hey Ladies,

I can't remember when do we do the gestional diabetes test? Is it 26 or 28 weeks? I hated that test and just want to start perparing myself for it.

I'm honestly not sure. . .but I thought it was usually around 26-28 weeks. I'm definitely not looking forward to that at all.

Chug Chug Chug! I agree having to get it down in just a few minutes is the worst. They didn't say anything to me about being ready for the test at my 24wk appt so it must be at the 28. And yeah the orange put me off orange pop for years. I think last time they had a fruit punch that wasn't too bad. kind of like Hawiian Punch.

I HATE THAT TEST-probably because they didn't tell me to fast the very first time I ever took it so I failed miserably( I had a candy bar not long before) So I had to go back for the 6 hr. which was BRUTAL! I will never eat before one of those again.

Thanks for the advice! I have a bad gag reflex so I hope I can get the drink down. My midwife hasn't even mentioned me taking this test, so hopefully she will say something about it at my next appt. . .otherwise I'll ask.

Yeah it was pretty awful...I think I read every magazine in their office. LOL! I recommend asking for the test to be done first thing in the a.m before you eat anything.
