I don't have mine scheduled yet but I do have an appt with my dr this week, and maybe he will mention it then. I had my other babies with different doctors... so I don't know exactly how he goes about it.
I did mine this past weekend. I don't have any issues with the drink, and I enjoyed the hour of peace and quiet I got while sitting in a nearly empty waiting room reading my Kindle while DH stayed home with the kids.
Mine is scheduled for March 15th, they also scheduled my prenatal appointment that day since Ill be there for 2 hours anyway. They didnt really tell me anything about it except that Id be there for awhile
I went and did mine this last friday. It wasn't as bad as I thought. I didn't get a choice on flavors...they gave me Orange, and it helped a lot that it was really cold and I was soooo thirsty!!
They told me if something was wrong they would call me and if not they would let me know my results at my next doctors appointment.
I just got the lab slip to do mine at my next appt on March 25th. I will probably do the fruit punch again. They keep them really cold, so that helps.. I didn't really have a problem with it last time, hoping it goes the same this time. I do the same thing as Teresa, go to the lab, drink the stuff, go to my appointment and then go back at one hour. Bleh. I was also told not to eat before it. And then not to eat for a couple hours after. Hmmm... I don't remember that being that way last time. But at least my appt is at 915 so I don't have to go hungry for long!

I had mine yesterday. They gave me the drink at my previous appointment so I could drink it at home before I went in. I didn't get a choice. Orange. It wasn't bad. Just tastes like crappy McDonald's flat orange drink I used to get at birthday parties as a kid. Haha
No one called me today saying my results were high, so that's good!
We talked about it at my last appt, but haven't scheduled it yet. I did not have one with either of my first two (different doctor, didn't feel it was necessary unless there were signs it was needed, etc) so I'm kind of anxious for it after some of the stories I've heard.
Try not to worry about it. They give you a cup of sweet soda (although it is flat). Ask for it over ice. You have 10 minutes to drink it. Then within an hour they do a blood draw. Not pleasant. However it it not the worst.
