    Hello... :wave:

    It's not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I was told to not eat/drink anything from midnight and then go to the hospital at 9. I gave some blood and then had a drink of lucozaide. Then waited there for about 2 hours for the second sample of blood. I was allowed to eat/drink as normal after that. It wasn't too bad because I had something to eat/drink at 11.30 the night before and didn't get up too early before leaving for the hospital. Hope this helps! x

    mine is booked for the 9th april. had one done last time i was pregnant

    its boring as you cant walk around, so i normally take a book/magazine or something
    The drink i was given wasnt lucozade it was a light yellow colour, very sugary didnt taste that bad.

    but as others have said its not bad, very easy
