    So I am about to hop in the shower to get ready to go take my glucose tolerance test. For some reason, I am super freaking out about it. I think because my family has a history of diabetes. I dunno, but I have been putting it off for this whole week. The good thing is that I didnt have to fast for it. Anyways, nervous nelly is going to hop in the shower and quit procrastinating!

    good luck... the only part I'm dreading about it is the drink :sick:
    If you can reassure me at all about the drink being ok , that would help me a lot!

    Good luck! I just had mine yesterday and it was totally fine. The drink was sooooo totally fine, I don't know what folks get worked up about (it was the orange flavor). It's so small it's gone in a snap anyways. Did feel a bit icky and peckish for the rest of the day though. They said if they don't call me by end of Monday I'm fine --- grr, now I'll be worrying about it all weekend...

    Ok I did the lemon lime flavor. Not too bad, not settling too great, but could be way worse. It wasnt nearly as bad as I thought it would be. Now I wait!

    lol make sure you drink water and eat something.. I've heard that prevents having a horrible crash or headache or feeling awful the rest of the day etc...

    Glad it wasn't horrible for you. I had mine right before I was diagnosed with hyperemesis. I was so sick while waiting for that hour, begging them to let me eat some morning sickness crackers. As soon as I got home afterward, I puked my guts out, had some crackers, and went to bed lol.

    I didn't find the drink that bad either, I just chugged it and got it all over with. Took about 5 seconds, and they let me have some nice cold water when I was done to rinse the taste out and try to settle my tummy a bit.
