Glucose Test

Tomorrow is my glucose test to check for gestational diabetes with my midwife. I believe that this will be the last appointment I have with the midwife, as on Friday I will be transferring my care to the High Risk OB at CHOP. My midwife does the glucose test a little different. Instead of drinking that nasty drink (well I wouldn't know because I never drank it, but so I have heard) I have to eat 18 jelly beans one hour prior to my appointment. For 3 days prior to the test I have to avoid all sugar, honey & fruit, but I have to eat a lot of carbohydrates. I am looking forward to this sugar fast being over!!
