It didn’t bother me at all.  I wouldn’t worry about it.  If you are still getting sick from pregnancy, then it might be hard, but if you feel fine otherwise then you’ll probably be fine.

Lyndzo :  same, in Ontario. I failed the first 1hr and waiting to hear back from the 2hr. Luckily both of mine were served cold. Wasn’t the nicest thing Ive drank but certainly had worse drinks!

Honestly the 1 hour was fine but the 3 hour is awful. I threw up 30 mins in after the 3 hour one. Its twice as concentrated and you can’t eat for 12 hours prior. The second attempt they gave me a zofran and it worked well. I wasn’t nauseated but still felt light headed and bad. Make sure you bring food to eat right after or you might have issues. I got super shaky and sweaty my blood sugar got really low at the end.

Anyway the key is to distract yourself I watched tv shows on my phone and it helped too.

I hope you don’t have to take the 3 hour but it’s best to plan ahead if you have to.
