    Good luck!!

    My mother is a severe diabetic (odd combo of type 1 and type 2 - don't ask!). I had to have the 4 hour test and then I had to listen to her harp for 2 weeks until the final tests came back. Everything turned out fine.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

    I have a very strong family history of diabetes...my little brother is a type 1, my sister had gestational diabetes twice and then became insulin-dependent type 2 when she was 30. My mother is also insulin-dependent type 2, and I have an aunt with type 1, and a grandfather with type 2. So, my care providers always said I would probably have gestational diabetes too, especially since I had 2 children over the age of 35. But, so far (knocking on head), I haven't had any blood sugar problems at all.

    Good luck with your test. BTW, tell your mother eating sugar doesn't give you diabetes.

    I PASSED!!!!! Barely but I passed the cut off was 139 and I was at 131. I think my mom just wants me to get in the routine of watching it now so it's not so hard if I end up with it down the road. Although I keep telling her I'm going to enjoy my sweet tea while I can. Anyway they just told me to kind of keep an eye on the things I eat she said something about it might make me feel funny if it gets high. So anyway thanks for all the positive thoughts yesterday :D

    That's very good news, Pickles.

    Shelli--That orange drinks tastes like Fanta or a poor man's Sunkist. I liked it. But that could be because I was starving by the time I took the test.

    The orange doesn't taste that bad it's just really really sweet it taste like a flat orange soda that has extra sweetner or sugar added to it. Just make sure you eat a little something before you drink it they told me to eat normally because they've had women who didn't eat through it up. It's really not that bad and then all they do is poke your finger to get the blood. My Dr.'s office gave me a choice between lemon lime and the orange I always pick orange but the lemmon lime might not be to bad either
