You have to go 4 hours withouut eating, go to the place that does them, drink a sugar drink (orange or cherry) within 5 minutes, then wait an hour. They take a few voles of blood, and you get your results at your next prenatal visit.

They give you Glucola which is a sugar drink. Some ppl dont like the flavor and others do. But you dont eat anything that morning and you drink the glucola 40 minutes before your appt. You have to drink it in 3-5 mins and record when you finished. Your blood gets drawn about an hour after and that pretty much it until you get your results. If you pass great, if you dont, you have to take the 3 hour glucola test where you get your blood drawn about 3 or 4 times.

You go where ever your gunna get the test done. They give you a drink (just so you know to me it was nasty) you have to drink it within 5 minutes. You wait 1 hr and then they draw your blood. I just had mine today

If lemon lime is a flavor option, pick that one! The other flavors are really gross, not saying the lemon lime is delicious but it taste better then the orange that's for sure! lol

I had the orange and it wasn't too bad. Not good, but not intolerable. Kinda like flat soda.
