Is the glucose test really that bad? MommytoAva1 1 child; Somewhere, TN, United States 320 posts

Everyone keeps telling me how the drink they make you drink for the glucose test is super nasty(according to my doctor, it's the orange drink) and how I'm gonna throw up. I have always had a strong stomach, and haven't gotten sick this whole pregnancy. So is the drink really that bad or are people exaggerating?
I think I'm just worried about this test because I had a nightmare about it the other night Unknown

Don't think about it. I've done it 3 times and still have my 4th coming up. Drink it fast and as long as it's cold it's not to horrible.  I've never thrown up

I NEVER thought it was nasty I didn't like that I had a time limit to drink it though. It always tasted to me like those cheap juices you buy at the mexican stores. I am mexican so I kinda grew up drinking these.

They are exaggerating. You might be able to choose a flavor that's easiest for you. With my last pregnancy I didn't get a choice and had to settle for lime. It was nasty, but it wasn't that bad going down. Just plug your nose while you drink.

It's not that bad. It tastes like really sugary soda without the carbonation.

It's not that bad. It kinda tastes like orange soda that's been left out awhile so there's no fizz. I was able to drink it really quickly

I had mine 2 wks ago its bearable I think it tasted a bit like really sugary thick lemonade, I had to drink it in 5 minutes... I didn't throw up. I hated the part where I had to be jabbed 3 x and waiting for 2 hrs sitting on my bum. You'll be ok.

thanks yall, that makes me feel better. I guess people are just trying to scare me since it's my first baby and I've never had to do any of this before

It is super sweet, but tolerable. I wouldn't say it's nasty.

I actually liked it lol. Mine wasn't orange though, mine was clear and taste like flat lemonade. I just guzzled that sucker down in 5 minutes, don't let it get warm drink it while its cold.

As someone who does not drink sugary drinks, I didn't think it was a big deal at all. It was like flat orange soda.

It's not that bad. I have had the orange and lemon lime and would have to say the orange was worse but still not bad, kinda like Sunkist with a ton of extra sugar. Best advice is drink it fast.
