taking the test really isn't as bad as it's made out to be. the drink i had was orange flavored and tasted like a mix between orange soda and squirt. as for the needles, just try not to look while they are taking the sample. it's real quick and relitively painless, and it's the best thing for your baby.
I didnt want to take it, but I gulped down the two little cups of uncarbonated fruit punch. It's not that bad, and I really am afraid of needles..but get use to all this stuff because once you get into the hospital they are like pricking you with all these needles the have to keep getting blood work from you. As for the drink...drink it fast..but not too fast. I am usually very hyper, and actually drank a soda and ate some candy before the test..but erm well that was a bad ideo because the drink is like pure sugar lol...and it made me sooo hyper that I crashed..and crashed hard. I was all nautious and stuff but I hung in there...because if you dont, you have to take the 3 hour one
I'm not afraid of needles, injections are just fine, I don't mind drinking surgary things, having my blood drawn makes me have panic attacks and I don't like it. All you wanna be Dr's can keep the "Its not for you, its for your baby" comments to yourself. The only side effect do this that I can see is that you come out with a 10 lb baby. Has anyone passed on the test?
mine tasted like orange soda... only syrupier lol.. it was good... they give it to you nice and cold.. and you could drink water with it.. the blood withdrawal isnt that bad,. i dont think you can skip it... and you shouldnt. better to be safe than sorry
