I had to take the 1 hour glucose test today.
Surprisingly, not horrible! I didn't mind the drink itself (I had the Fruit Punch), and I didn't get jittery or anything until a few hours later. This I blame on the fact that I ate frosted flakes for breakfast. Not a good idea.
All of my bloodwork is done at a 3rd party lab. So I got there, waited in line (forever!!) and checked in. I made sure to tell the receptionist that I needed the glucose test, so she gave me the drink right there. I had thought ahead, so I had a book. But between calling (ahem harassing) my husband, and various other calls I needed to make, I didn't get much of it read. My hour went much faster than I had expected, and I was soon on my way!
All in all, it really wasn't that bad. Annoying, yes, but certainly not dreadful.
