The glucose tolerance test we all love. With my daughter I had to take the 1 hour and 3 hour test. I was given the orange flavored sugar solution both times, which I call a "flat sunkist". With this pregnancy I failed the 1 hour again and recently had to go in for the 3 hour(haven't received those results yet but i'm not worried). I was given my flat sunkist for the 1 hour but for the 3 hour they gave me this very sugary flat sprite tasting thing. It was much worse than the other in my opinion, however I was still able to handle it. Probably because I still compare every thing a health person gives me to the crap I had to drink for a cat scan years ago! haha Anyway, I have also heard of a colar sugar solution - I can't even imagine how bad that must taste. Just had to rant about nothing for a bit.:)

Yeah, I know what you mean! People talk about it like it's the worst possible thing you'll ever be made to drink. That isn't true at all.. it's just way too sweet.

The only problem I have is now I hate orange soda. Everytime I drink orange soda it reminds me of that.
