I did the one-hour glucose test earlier this week, am 28 weeks pregnant now, and I vomited all the stuff. I tried a different flavour and vomited that too. They went ahead and drew my blood anyway, but the result was 141. So they want me to try to drink it again tomorrow to see if I can get a more accurate reading.
Has anyone tried an alternative? I've read some articles online about how if you are able to eat 18 jellybeans (a certain brand) in 2 minutes, it's an adequate substitute (though I'm not sure I wouldn't just vomit the jellybeans either). I know it needs to be 25g of glucose. However there are a lot of snacks that have that much sugar in them (skittles, for example) and I'm just not 100% sure how the liquid is so different from another form.
I don't want to seem like I'm "cheating" the test as I am willing to try a third time to get an accurate result, but I was wondering if anyone had their OB use a different source of sugar besides the glucola or if you knew of any great medical journal sites that would document other usage.
Here is a study I found from a medical journal:
