THE GLUCOSE TOLERANCE TEST - NEVER AGAIN, THANK YOU.

So earlier this month I went to take a glucose tolerance test.
There was something odd going on in my urine test at the early pregnancy, so the nurse
wanted me to take the glucose tolerance test. It was something about how something was
supposed to be 55, but for me, it was 56 so that made me belong to the risk group for
gestational diabetes.
I was instantly like "oh, what the hell woman - how do you expect me to keep that
the sugar-filled liquid in when I'm not even able to drink Coca-Cola?"


So the 7th of November arrived. I scheduled the test for the morning, thank goodness
there were unbooked times for Monday morning. I had my test taken at 8:30AM so it
meant that I hadn't eaten anything in 12 hours before the test.

Sometimes, I keep wondering, that if we're as intelligent as we are as humans, how on
Earth we haven't figured out the better way to look if there's a possibility to have
gestational diabetes?

Anyhow, the nurse was the sweetest. She made me feel comfy and she understood when
I said that I'm not a fan of sweet liquids, candy or well, anything sweet at all for that
matter. She was just laughing at me with me when I tried to drink up that glucose liquid.
It made me feel so dizzy.
First 15 minutes after drinking it went by fine, I was thinking that nah - it wasn't a big deal,
my body can handle this.
Well, quite well after that 20 minutes everything went down the hill. Literally. I was so
nauseous & dizzy I was sure I was going to die.
After the hour when she took a blood out of me, I was completely out of this world.
Shaking, because of all of that sugar and almost fainting, because of all of that sugar.

That was an experience I'd rather not go through again.
It felt like I had eaten three bags of sweets from one sitting and I don't eat sweets. I don't
drink juice or sodas or anything, so my body had no clue how to handle that crazy amount
of sugar, that suddenly appeared into my system.
That was definitely the worst.

Never again, thank you.

  4. I never had to go through this and hopefully I won't ever have to take this kind of test. I can just imagine how you felt because I try so hard not to drink/eat too much sugar and I always feel bad when I have just a soda (and I don't even drink the whole thing).

  7. You poor thing. I have a sweet tooth and even my glucose test was a struggle. I don't miss those days. All the blood work and such with pregnancies. Stress tests and ultrasounds. In the U.S. the latter is done by a tech and they make you drink and hold 32 ounces of water beforehand. Ugh!
