1 Hour Glucose Test

Okay ladies, we all have to do this and get it over with.

Let me tell you, it’s really not that bad! The drink just taste like flat soda.

Hopefully when you get to the doctors office it’s chilled. Your doctor (most likely) won’t ask you to fast, but your body breaks down everything into sugar. So, if you ask me, (a non-medical professional), I think you should just wait until after the test to eat that way you have a better chance of passing it. I failed my test by four points and I only drank water and ate 2 scrambled eggs on wheat toast. So, of course, I had to take the much dreaded three hour glucose test which is wayyyy worse than the one hour. Depending on your stomach, you may get a stomach ache. I got a stomach ache and napped after my test. I definitely didn’t feel good for the rest of the day, but I knew it wouldn’t kill me.

Forget what you heard about the drink and fast if you can! You got this mamas!
