I am a little scared about this glucose test I have to take

Don't be scared, they will be testing you for diabetes. If it comes back that you have gestational diabetes then you will need to change your diet to control it until baby is born. Once you have your diet sorted out and your glucose levels are under control then you and baby will be ok, that's why you need to take the test :-) The test itself is nothing to be afraid of. You have to have blood taken at several intervals before and after taking a glucose drink.
