    Default Anyone like the glucose test drink?

    I just had my glucose test and now I am waiting the hour for my blood test. From what I heard of other people say, I expected that the drink would be very syrupy and gross, but I liked it, tasted like lemonade to me, maybe a little stronger. Just wondering if anyone didn't think it was as bad as they thought it would be or they liked it. Maybe I'm just weird

    did you get the green drink or the clear one

    ETA - I hated it, I got the long version with both pregnacies and thought I was going to pass out both times as well as chuck my guts up.

    Yep I agree! Tastes like strong lemonade... no where near as bad as what everyone makes it out to be.

    I got the green one both times and found it really thick and syrupy, so hopefully with this preg I get to broaden my horizens and go the clear one (I don;t even know if it's much different TBH) Apparently I only have to do the hour long one without all the fasting so FX it improves the situation!

    Yeah I enjoyed it! I had the clear one and agree with the lemonade!

    It was delicious- maybe just a bit sweet for 8am!
