    Can't you eat something quickly now? I had to fast from 10pm? 5 mins won't matter.

    take a bottle of water with you to sip on while you wait, it will give your stomach something to occupy itself with.

    If you don't feel great, then ask to lay down. I felt a bit iffy and waited ages until my mum asked a midwife, they were very nice and said of course. It was too hot in my hospital. I had to have a second test 5 weeks later cos of extra amniotic fluid, even though first was negative, I was more prepared and asked to lay down sooner and it wasnt too bad. Some people talk of having a lucozade drink, mine was in brown bottle and a bit like a thick honey liquid. I found adding the lemon squash they provided took the taste away a bit. Depends what drink they give you, some people quite liked it! take carb food for straight afterwards, you feel better so quickly. Xxx
