Today, my friends, I failed the initial test. I had some tears in my eyes because I hate failing, and because I'm pregnant, but it's not uncommon, especially for us with double trouble in our bellies.
Here's the magical glucose drink:
It tastes pretty crappy and made me a little nauseous. Or it could have been in my head because I read the label which said it can cause nausea at which point I started feeling woozy. Sort of the chicken and the egg conundrum.
But here's the big thing I want to discuss about this "drink." This drink has 50 grams of sugar in it. Now, a Krispy Kreme chocolate glazed donut with sprinkles has 23 grams of sugar in it. So here's my question. Why couldn't I have had 2 Krispy Kreme donuts instead of the stupid drink?
In simpler terms:
So for my test next week I'm thinking about bringing in a box of Krispy Kremes to see if maybe we can have a little negotiation.
And for those of you who are unaware (and seriously missing out,) for a limited time only Krispy Kreme has their pumpkin spice cake donuts out!!
|The 4 of these I ate last week might have led to the failing of my glucose test. TOTALLY WORTH IT.|
*Krispy Kreme does not pay me to advertise their products but I will gladly take their money. I love you Krispy Kreme. Not like puppy love or first high school boyfriend love. I'm talking stars in the eyes, loss of breath forever kind of love.
