  • Around 26-30 weeks :D I think I had mine at 25 weeks, they did stuff earlier than normal for me (one of the doctors messed up my schedule, lmao).

  • with in the next two weeks. be prepared it can hit you hard. i stayed like i had to in the lab to be observed and had no reaction after about an hour so i was sent home. Several hours later it hit me and I got litterally shaking from too much sugar and dizzy and nausaus. I immediately called my ob who told me even though the reaction was hours later things were sitll ok. Have someone with you in case you don't react there. You don't want to have a reaction driving yourself home.

  • You're supposed to take it at about 28 weeks-30 weeks.
    Be careful though, I took mine the other day and got sooo sick after! The drink is so sugary and sweet, I threw it all up about an hour and a half later, and almost passed out as well.

  • You are suppose to take it at the start of the third trimester. Although, I have never taken it and refuse to take it because it is pointless.
