Somewhere between the 26th and 28th week of pregnancy, women have to take a glucose screening test to check for gestational diabetes. In the past, it was a sugary orange soda type drink, which is apparently being changed to a lemon lime flavor. Neither sound that appealing but one thing that can help the "medicine" go down a bit smoother — ice cubes!

Before you head in for your glucose test, remember to bring a cup of ice with you to the doctor's office. Pour the liquid on top and chug it with more ease than a lukewarm glass would offer.
