I'm not too excited about drinking this orange stuff, and getting blood drawn. I hope the results are good though because i hate waiting, thank god boyfriend will be holding my hand -.- I guess they told me not to eat too much like an egg for breakfast and salad for lunch, ouch this will be tough

I was told not to eat at all.
Don't freak if you fail your first test. I failed my first with both my boys then passed my second.

The stuff tastes like flat orange soda just so you're prepared.

Drink it fast. Some people hate the taste so they drink it really slow. To me, that makes it worse. I drank it all in one or two swallows. Good luck!

Chug it down. It will probably make you really jittery. I'm surprised they let you eat at all. I always scheduled it really early im the morning so I didn't have to starve all day.

I only failed once(by ONE freaking point!) The three hour was pretty crappy because I didn't get to eat for about 5 hours!

I am strictly on eating cheerios til about 1, Lol. I would hate the three hour because of not eating, like is that okay for the baby?? I would feel like im starving her.

It depends on your doctor.  My doctor just gives us a can of Orange Fanta.  Different doctors use different methods for this test.

Mine is scheduled for Thursday.  I like the test though because I like orange pop.  My doctors don't care if eat anything up until about an hour before my appointment as long as its not candy.

So I drank the orange stuff and about threw it up, got there and got told by surprise "since you're A negative you have to get a rhoGAM shot in your ass" oh... Great... Then went on to get lots of blood drawn and got my blood all over a pillow. My ass is so numb. If I have to do this again I will be soo uoset
