Rogue Baby #2: Glucose Test Part Duex

This morning I hired a sitter and used my precious time away from my little boy to be tortured. I have only ever taken the 1 hour test and that test was bad enough. The drink is disgusting. I walked in today totally unprepared for a new level of disgusting. Apparently the three hour test needs a HIGHER concentration of sugar than the one hour test. Makes perfect sense I guess except that the consistency of this drink is like syrup. I am ACTUALLY GAGGING right now just writing about it days later.

By sheer force of will I made myself drink the whole drink in the 10 minutes allotted. And then I laid down, shut my eyes and chanted over and over to myself ‘I will not throw up, I will not pass out, I will not die’. There was no way I could read, or sleep, I was that sick. However I knew if I did actually get sick then I would just need to come back the next day to try all over again.

Thankfully despite how awful I felt I managed to get through the entire three hour test. And then I went home and laid on the couch the rest of the day. I drank a ton of water and ate oatmeal and toast to try and soak up the rest of the syrup in my system. EWWWWWW.

Now I just need to cross my fingers and pray that I passed.
