UGH!!!!! I am hoping to pass the 1 hour test so I don't have to take the longer test, I did this when I was younger because the doctor was freaked out that my Dad had diabetes and wanted to check me, I have never been so sick and now hate orange soda. Hopefully I can keep it down if I have to do it, about 7 weeks until I have to take it if needed.

I got stuck with ORANGE and I hate anything lemon lime or ORANGE.. everyone said oh put it in the fridge and when its time just chug it.. I started to then it came back up.. i had to keep taking little sips and swallow a lot in between.. it seriously is one of the worst parts of preggers.. Ive had horrible aversions to drinks and food and awful nausea this time.. Im really hoping I can get it down when its time.. UGHHHH SOOOOO GROSS...

My dr only had the orange kind as well, I'm hoping he has different options this time. I didn't get sick last time, but I am a lot more nauseous this time so I am really hoping I don't get sick.

I had the orange, kind of tasted like orange soda. Of course it doesn't help that I hate orange drinks. lol
I think my dr told me between 25 and 28 weeks. I saw his midwife last appt and she scheduled my test. When I saw him today he almost wrote out another one. I told him I was in the midst of one already. No more for me, as long as I pass this one.lol

I had to do mine early cause I had GD last pregnancy. I had the flavor that tasted like flat sprite, but I think it is much better tasting than the orange one. I have not recieved a call yet saying I failed so I may be good to go or they may just have me repeat the test at 26 weeks, we shall see!
