  • I had to do it, and I fainted.

    And, surprisingly, passed the test.

  • I have had to once in five pregnancies. It did not make me sick and was the same drink as the one hour test.

  • I had to, didn't make me sick but didn't want any type of orange drink again. I failed it. My blood sugar always jumps up an hour after I wake even when I don't eat and even when not pregnant. I was destined to fail it.
    Oh, and I am not a diabetic.

  • I did. Longest 3 hours ever! Same drink as the one-hour and no it didn't. Tasted like watered down orange soda. I passed the test. My daughter is 2 now.

  • I had my baby 5 months ago but I did take it, the cola, and I failed it. So I had to test my sugar 3-4 times daily and go on a strict diet. I was at 28 weeks.

  • I had to take the glucose test. It made me sick the second time I had to take it, but I only had to wait an hour for mine. I passed it both times.
