Question About The Glucose Screening Test

Christy - October 12

I'm going in a few days for the glucose test and this is my third pregnancy, but I can't remember, do I have to stay still for the hour while I wait? I was hoping I could drink the stuff and run out for a few minutes instead of just sitting there. Thanks, I can't seem to stay still anymore.

yES you still have to drink that nasty stuff and wait an hour... It sucks but they always let me leave and come back within an hour..

You should find out if you can get the drink before your visit and drink it before you get there. On my last visit my doc gave me the drink and told me to time it that when i arrive there it would ahve been a hr. then that way you dont have to wait.

Hi - October 12

I was suppposed to do the glucose test this month, but since i am still throwing up my doctor wants to wait. This is my first pregnancy, so can someone please tell me about the glucose test, what do you have to drink, and then what do they do?

the glucose screening test is when they make you drink this gross drink, it's supposed to taste like McD's orange drink and then make you wait an hour, take blood, and see how well your body is absorbing the sugar, if you have excess glucose in your blood they do extensive testing, it's a test for gestational diabetes as far as I know.

They wouldn't let me leave the office for the hour. But check with your doctor, they all do it differently.

You can be active, but you can't eat or drink after. They may not let you leave just to monitor that. Just ask them when you get there :)
