Here is what made my afternoon so gross! I thought I would take a picture of it in ALL it's glory! I had to take my glucose tolerance test today. This was just a routine test, with a lot of grief attached to it. First, I have been waking up a lot later this week, and I didn't realize that not only did I need to time my drinking of this vile junk, I also could not eat 2 hours prior to the drinking. I woke up after 10am and had my pop-tarts and then when I actually figured out my timeline, I had to eat again by no later than noon. I got to work making some egg salad sandwiches and forced myself to eat one. I was done with it by 12:30pm and was so worn out that I had to take a nap! I have been really tired this week!! I have napped and slept late every day.
My appt was at 3:2opm, but since I drank the yuckness at 2:30, they needed to take blood at 3:30pm. It worked out perfectly because they drew blood while I was waiting to be called back for my appointment. I love my doctor!! She said that she was not worried about the glucose test because I have stayed in really good shape throughout my pregnancy. She said that they would call within a few days only if there was a problem, otherwise I would talk about the results at my next appointment in 3 weeks. I am not worried. I just keep having flashbacks to that orange junk. I think that my experience would not have been so bad except for I have not had a soda for 2 years and then I had to drink the equivalent of a flat one! GROSS....
I am going to try to figure out how to post more than 5 pictures to a post tomorrow so that I can share some of my baby shower!!!


  1. YUCK! I feel for you..that drink is disgusting!

  2. That stuff is disgusting...I almost got sick after I drank mine. So least you just have to do it once! :)

    After you load the five pictures and save them, just go back and hit the load pictures button can keep doing it as many times as you want, but it's always five at a time.

  3. The last time (#3) I drank that, I left the lab and went shopping to kill my hour. Nasty stuff.
