Hi-- I had my glucose test at 10 AM this morning and now at 1:30 pm I am shaking like a leaf and feel nauseous. I know it's probably from the drink they gave me-- should I call the midwives or will this pass? Anyone have an idea what causes this? I have borderline low blood sugar and low blood pressure normally.

thanks!

thanks ladies-- I've never had such a strong reaction before (I've had three other lab ones). My whole body was telling me not to drink that stuff-- it was this florescent orange color and was artificially flavored. I just ate some cashews and do feel a bit better. Good grief! Yuck!!

With my homebirth all I had to do was drink some grape juice and the midwife took a pin prick of blood. This way stinks!
