Do you eat or drink anything before your OB visits?

My sister doesn't eat or drink a thing so the scale doesn't insult her lol, but wouldn't that also make your blood pressure appear high if you don't drink anything?

  • I would always drink before going so that I was able to give a pee sample. When you are pregnant it is one time not to worry about the scale!

  • I eat 24/7, lol, I'm going to weigh "fat" either way while I'm pregnant, so what is one or two extra pounds of liquid and food going to do to me, lol, if I eat when I get home I'd be weighing that much more anyway!

  • it all depends on when the appointment is and what it is for some they tell you not too eat or drink before

  • I like my appointments in the afternoon and they've all been at 3 pm. There's no way I could wait that long to eat. I don't eat after lunch, until the appointment is over, though. I do drink water all day, though, regardless.
