Just had my GTT


So I am just back in work after having my 2 hour Glucose Tolerance Test.

Everybody put the fear of god in me saying it was horrible, the drink tasted awful and I would feel sick.

It was absolutely nothing. The biggest thing was the boredom waiting for 2 hours in the waiting room for my repeat bloods. The drink just tasted like sweet orange juice to me. Wasn't the best, but I certainly wasn't gagging on it like I was told.

Im praying I don't have GD. She said if she hasn't called me by tomorrow lunch time them all is ok xx

Glad to hear this. I've always taken the fasting test with my midwife in my previous pregnancies, in which I had to fast overnight and have my blood drawn in the morning, to avoid "the drink" that people wrote horror stories about. I found out however that the midwife I saw in all my previous pregnancies retired so the new midwife I have now might not be willing to let me get out of it this time. I'm so happy to hear a positive experience for once.

Good luck on your results!
