....

yes i am doing this test (gestational diabetes) today. yes i've been fasting since midnight. of course i woke up wide awake this morning at 7 am. the doctor's office definitely isn't open then. i am starving and my stomach is starting to hurt. i also have a headache because of hunger. i know i'm complaining, but i think i'm kind of going a little bit crazy.
the word uncomfortable doesn't even being to describe how i'm feeling.
nonetheless, i'm thankful.
so i'm off to drink the orange drink.
cheers to being uncomfortable.

K so when I did this I didn't have to go without eating (my Dr just said no sugary cereal or anything like that. I had to eat like toast or what not) & ALSO I got to choose a flavor & there was the orange or I think it was fruit punch! Anyway I did the fruit punch & it wasn't that bad @ all! Anyway that SUCKS you have gone all night without eating. It's SO hard to do that when you're prego. I hope the test goes well though! I will toast to you with being uncomfortable. I am feeling that right now! HaHa! However it will ALL be worth it when we FINALLY get to hold our little ones!! ;) Good Luck!!

i don't like that test. i have to trick myself into believing that its fanta or something yummy instead of sugar water colored orange. good luck!

SICK. worst ever. honestly. i was lucky, they had fruit punch flavored. i wanted to get it over so badly that the nurse handed me the bottle, turned around to grab her notes, and BAM the bottle was empty. she thought i poured it down the drain when she turned around.

Jenna-
By the way, you are AWESOME! Always love reading your blog.
SO SO glad your test results came out okay. GD is such a horrible added stress in the pregnancy.

Also, next pregnancy, hopefully you won't have to drink the drink. And you really only have to fast for four hours. Here's what they gave me:
first preg-- easter jelly beans
second-- jelly bellies
third-- king size snickers bar

if there is a fourth pregnancy someday, I'm doin' root beer and red licorice. its all about complaining to the right people.

Good luck on this final stretch... HOORAY!
