  • I just took that like a week and a half ago. They just don't want you to eat for like an hour before you drink the drink. My appt. was at 9:30 am, so I just skipped breakfast.

  • I had to fast after 10pm and only water until the test.

  • I agree- ask your OB. Also if you are allowed to eat, keep track of what it is because that can alter your results (I found that out the hard way)

  • I was never told to fast, just drink the stuff an hour before the blood draw and don't eat or drink anyting else after drinking that.

  • My doctor said that I should eat and drink like normal up until I take the drink. But I agree with the above posters, you should ask your OB

  • I took it and no one told me to fast. I had to tell them that I had Powdered donuts that morning. LOL It's their fault though. I say no breakfast.
