Even though my Dr says he believes there's no reason to worry about my son having Spinabifida, he said since we still have the appointment with the specialist we could still go. That appointment is tomorrow. I know my Dr cleared my son but I find myself still scared to go.

Also Feb 13th is my diabetes testing. This is my first pregnancy so I'm nervous. Anyone already had their's and can explain a little of what to expect? Thanks

Diabetes test is no biggie. You just drink a bottle of uber sugary stuff, kinda like flat sugary pop, then wait an hour and they draw your blood. I try to drink it fast cuz its kind of gross lol. But not hideous. I hope your appt goes well tomorrow. Try not to be nervous :)

I agree with Orion. It's not bad at all. Just really sweet, chug it and get it over with lol.

Also don't stress if you fail, I don't even know why they bother doing the 1hr test. Most women do fail, I did and I exercise everyday plus eat healthy. It just happens. I just did the 3 hr fasting one because I barely failed. It's more boring than anything. Haha

You'll be fine :)

Good to know about the failing because I would have freaked. I'm deathly afraid of needles so that part is never fun for me. Thanks for the advice. As long as the drink didn't taste as bad as that stuff you have to have before having a cat scan I'll be fine lol. That stuff made me sick.

Good luck with your appt! I'm sure theres nothing to worry about!! But these things are always good to double check and get a second opinion, just in case!

As others said about the glucose test, the drink itself isnt bad. I was all prepped for the most god-awful thing on earth and really it just tasted like thick/heavy koolaid. my issue with the glucose test was that about 45 min in, my body went crazy and I started feeling dizzy and light-headed. I'm told that can happen depending on how your body reacts to that much sugar in your system. I passed with flying colors though, so it must just be me :) I'm not looking forward to it again.

Awesome news about the doctors appt!

I will be going over the glucose test at my next appointment next week. I have a horrible time giving blood too! Theres only one place they get it from and then the hand. I'd be horrified about doing the 3hr test. Praying I pass the 1 hour!

Thank you :) I'm thankful I don't have to have blood drawn from my hand. I'm very afraid of needles. But they almost always blow my veins or cannot get blood out of the first vein they stick. I hope you past the first test for sure!!
