    I had it at 12 weeks, and couldnt decide which was worse at that point, the hanging around the hospital for two hours waiting or the morning sickness made worse with the fasting. Had it again at 27 weeks which wasn't so bad as I wasn't nauseous. Best thing to do is take something to do like read/sewing or whatever while you wait. xx

    I havent had mine yet, I have the joys of looking forward to it @ 28 weeks as there is history of diabetes in my family although I havent got it. I did think it was a bit of a waste of time seeing as I havent got it but hey ho :?

    I've had one, the only pain is the boredom of waiting around for ages. Take a good book or a magazine!!
    The drink isn't too appetising, but it is drinkable. Take a bottle of water as you are allowed small sips of water if you're thristy.

    I had mine at 28 weeks... I quite liked the drink tbh... usually I have to go have my bloods taken on an empty stomach and stand in a queue for nearly an hour on my feet with no where to sit feeling weak, nauseous and dizzy (did it yesterday again :roll: ) so it was nice to have something on my stomach that time :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

    I had mine at 9am so the whole "fasting" thing wasn't an issue as I could take or leave breakfast at the best of times and I had to "fast" from 10pm the night before! When I was free to go I made up for lost time with a visit to M&S food dept!!! :rotfl:

    Do they only give it to some people?
    I've never even had it mentionned - not even to say they don't do it, or I don't need it etc. :think:

    They do it if you are over a certain BMI (30 or 35 I think), if you are of certain ethnicities or if there is a history of diabetes in your immediate family.
