I had this test done last Monday week. First sample taken immediately on arrival, was given the drink to drink. The second blood sample was taken an hour after finishing the drink and the third an hour later. I brought some music and a book tokeep me occupied but to be honest I felt quite ill after the drink so walked around to take my mind off it. Think it was more to do with the dehydration than anything else. I was required to take the test as my Dad has type 2 diabetes and therefore I have more risk of developing it.

I don't know why they're giving it to me TBH :-8 The midwife made the appointment for me at my booking visit. The fasting is the worst bit, can't have anything at all for the duration of it. Morning sickness a-go-go tomorrow then, I usually shovel something into my stomach in the morning straight away to keep nausea down a bit :o( Thanks for the offer of a lend of your MIL Whall, is it bad that I wish I knew someone in hosp so I could 'visit' and have a lie down on their bed :yelrotflmaosmilie:

Well I survived the test anyway, very nearly threw up though. Morning sickness is not nice when fasting :weep
