Anyone know what I should expect? I have to do it on Friday because my bmi is pretty high. Weird because I was heavier with DD and didn't have to and never made it to the 28 week test since she was born so early. So, I'm clueless. I've heard about the drink. And the nurse said I need an hour to sit? Is there anything else I should know?

Here, you go in drink the drink within 5 mins, sit for an hour and get blood taken and then you are done. Not sure if an early one would be different than the 28 week one.

The orange drink is a concentrated version of flat orange soda LOL...it was disgusting! And they make you drink it within 5 minutes. I was given a bottle. Then afterwards you have your blood drawn and your free to go. The doctor will give you a call and let you know if you have to go in to do the longer test

I had to do the test twice with my last pregnancy for the same reason. It wasn't any different than the glucose test later in the pregnancy. Drink it within 5 minutes, get blood drawn an hour later.

I went for mine last week. I went in, had 5 mins to drink the drink (just chug it!) and sit for an hour then have my blood drawn. Just make sure to keep it down.

Good luck. I passed it with both, but last time they made me do the 3 hour 3 stinking times. I had to drink the red drink. It tastes like straight sugar water. Gives me some massive migraines from so much sugar.

I did the lemon lime because I wasn't sure if the orange was like soda or juice and if it was like juice I would have thrown up everywhere. And the lemon lime was like old, flat, Sierra mist, and I already hate Sierra mist so it was ten times worse!

GL passing your one hour! I will have to take mine soon, had GD last pregnancy. The one hour is a piece of cake, it's the 3 hour that bites. To sit in the waiting room for 3 hours drives me C-R-A-Z-Y!

FWIW - I have never had any trouble getting their "drinks" down. Although I have very mild nausea for my pregnancies.
