    it's to see if you have pregnancy diabetes

    i'm not that clued up on it to be honest. i had the test too and mine was negative which was good for me. you have to drink the drink so they can measure how quickly you absorb sugar. i think..

    sorry, hope someone better will come along and give you a better reply!!
