Avatar f tn I just got home from by blood glucose test and feel really sick and tired. Is this normal? Does it mean something is wrong?
Avatar n tn Weird I didn't get my glucose test till like 27 weeks or something like that with either pregnancy... but my first I had high levels so I had to go back for the long test. Turns out I was fine no gestational diabetes for me. It was just what I ate the day of the first test that made them high.
Avatar f tn Please can someone explain to me what exactly is this glucose test all about.
Avatar n tn hi i am wonderin about this glucose test this is my 1st pregnancy in was wonderin bout the precedure..
Avatar n tn Thank you. I don't have too much sugar. I suck mints from when I wake to when I go to bed plus I've cut my intake of pure apple down to just one carton a day. It's a tough pregnancy with this one.
Avatar n tn Hello ladies have any of ya skip or went to do the glucose test at 25 weeks I hate it I don't want to do it
Avatar f tn Was told just not to drink a bunch of pop before the test. So I ate like normal but just cut out my morning pop. With my last pregnancy I forgot and drank a pepsi before the test and still passed. I had a friend that did fast and failed the 1 hour and had to do the 3 hour test.
8274643 tn?1406141596 I just drank the orange drink for the glucose test now I'm waiting for the hour to have blood drawn. Honestly, from what I've seen on here and how some girls got sick off of it etc I thought it was gonna be horrible. But the drink wasn't that bad! I chugged it though since my nurse poured it over ice. But it honestly wasn't as horrible as some people make it out to be. It just made my girls really hyper lol.
Avatar f tn Yupp, I just had mine done, yesterday
10389360 tn?1410823968 I'm doing it Friday at 24 weeks. I'm also not looking forward to it, afraid I'm gonna throw up the juice!!
Avatar n tn During the second pregnancy, my doctors, who were a team at a teaching hospital, sort of made a test case out of me. They deliberately set my glucose goals so low that I actually passed out cold about once a week from hypoglycemia. I feared for my life, but my doctors assured me that the baby's glucose levels remain constant. If the mom's glucose drops, only SHE is affected. They likened baby to a little leach, who takes just what he or she needs, leaving the mom whatever is left.
10798067 tn?1431550433 Hey ladies..ok so im on my 4th pregnancy and due to have a glucose test in a few week..told its goin to take 2 to 3 hours! I have never had one before on previous pregnancies but i have heard it makes you feel awful sick this true? And what exactly does it involve? What was your experience of it like?
360318 tn?1340393363 i've had gestational diabetes in my previous pregnancy and will be tested twice this time, first test came back normal but i need to be tested further along. The drink wont cause harm as a one off but they do need to check how your body reacts to it, its more dangerous not to give the drink and potentially let someone who HAS it go misdiagnosed following no specific diet or care for GD.
Avatar n tn I am 23 wks preggers and last week I saw my consultant, who has said in mid sept I have to have a glucose test. I have low blood pressure all the way through pregnancy, high BMI because I am overweight and the consultant put me on clexane injections daily. Can anyone tell me why I have to have this glucose test and what it's for please? I have had a poor diet because of bad sickness. I was losing weight up to 3-4 months preggers and I still have sickness now just not as bad.
Avatar f tn So I had my glucose test and it came back my high so now I gotta prick my self ever day :(

Im terrible at having blood taken if I don't eat something before hand I pass out so im petrified cuz im not aloud anything but water from 10pm the night before how am I gonna manage having blood taken with no food?
Avatar f tn I have a glucose test in the morning & I am very nervous this is my first pregnancy I guess that's why I really need advice...
8171031 tn?1399327634 2 the reason they took it twice was just to make sure I didnt have gd they took one early in my pregnancy and another later in my pregnancy but there could be any reason for them to be doing it to u again...
