    Default The Gestational Diabetes drink.....

    I loved the drink. It tasted good. But it made me feel dizzy and felt like vomiting the first time and the second time I just felt so uncomfortable in the stomach.
    I didn't know you had a choice either@@

    Of course we have a choice. We can choose whatever we want in pregnancy??
    Some woman go through their entire pregnancy without a single test or scan to do with anything.
    I'm happy with my decision not to get it done. I've read a lot and don't believe that I will develop it in my 5th pregnancy.

    I got given Lucozade, which normally I don't mind. But first thing in the morning and on an empty stomach...no thanks.

    Interesting, Nettle! Is THAT all the sugar it has in it? So what is that, about 24 teaspoons full? Still quite a lot, I suppose.

    My partner would say, "You have that in every coffee you drink."

    It must have been the first-thing-in-the-morning on-an-empty-stomach + morning sickness thing, then, cos I truly do have a lot of sugar in my coffee! But I have one of those first thing every morning on an empty stomach...confusing!

    Hmmm well of you take a teaspoon of sugar to be about 4g then that makes about 18 of them. Which is still a lot.... That would make one VERY sweet coffee! LMAO! :-D

    I've got an unopened bottle sitting in the fridge. Better start the bidding ladies . Though mine might not be the top shelf stuff it's only 50g sugar in the 300mls.

    I decided not to take the test, I didn't think my risk was that high.

    This^^

    I actually had to pull over on the way home from my test to vomit, and I had the worst headache for the rest of the day!
