    You just drink 8 oz of a really sugary drink within 10 minutes and an hour later have your blood drawn. Simple, easy, painless!

    I was allowed to do whatever I wanted, just had to be there at the one hour mark to have my blood taken.

    It's all depends on how your OB wants to test. I got to do the 1 hour test and didn't have to fast if i didn't want to. I fasted anyway, just my choice. I thought the drink was yummy - mine was fruit punch. I was allowed to move around inside and outside the building. I could go to the bathroom if i wanted to, but i didn't need to until after they took the blood.
