Glucose Challenge Test

Today I had my Glucose Challenge test, which is the 1-hour test that is done to diagnose Gestational Diabetes. I went into the lab at around 8am and waited about half an hour to be called. Then I drank the infamous "orange drink", which by the way didn't taste as bad as it did last time... and I waited an hour.
After the hour went by, the phlebotomist drew my blood and I was free to go... By the time the test ended I was starving since I had to fast this morning....
Now I have to wait for the results and hope I pass this test with flying colors so I don't have to go in for a 3-hour version of it (called the Glucose Tolerance test)! We shall see!!
