Today, I will go to my obstetrician’s office for the Glucose Challenge Test. Don’t you love how they make it sound like it just might be fun? It’s a challenge! Are you up for it?
Here, drink this disgusting liquid. Don’t throw up! Now, let’s poke you with needles. If you don’t pass the test, you’ll have to come back and drink the stuff again, but this time, we’ll poke you with needles every hour on the hour for an entire day. What can you win? Gestational Diabetes!
Who are they fooling, really? They should just call it the Glucose Torture Experiment.
So, what are you doing today?
