  • The test causes big fluctuations in your bllod sugar levels, and people who are prone to fainting might struggle with that (especially during pregnancy). When I was pregnant, I passed out if you looked at me sideways, especially when my blood sugar was out of whack, and I never had gestational diabetes or any other health problems.

  • I always felt like I was going to pass out early on in my pregnancy. I dont recall doing a three hour glucose test. I did a one hour one, where I had to drink the orange crap and an hour later get my blood drawn. I wouldn't worry to much, just bring it up to your doctor.

  • I'll tell you one thing, I hate glucola drink, and I have no intentions on drinking it again...the black drink made me sick and i through up the whole time...so forget it...I'm not having it and good luck...I never pass out.
