  • For me I had to drink and super sugared up orange soda. I mean it was so sweet it made my head spin! I had 10 min to get it down then in an hour? 2 hours? I don't remember... I had to go to a lab to have my blood drawn for a glucose level... The drink wasn't gross but it wasn't good either.

  • the sugar test is given between 26 and 28 weeks, i am 27 weeks now and i have to go next week for the test. They give u an orange colored drink that u have to finish within 5 mins and then you have to have your blood drawn exactly one hour after you finished it
