indiblue :  I felt pretty tired and uncomfortable from 36 weeks on. I delivered two weeks early, so that might had to do with it. Do you feel confident about the test? Can you request to take it earlier?

I would request it earlier purely for the reason that you might deliver early and not be able to take the test at all. 34weeks would have been ideal for me.

I would take the test as early as possible. I felt great my entire pregnancy until baby decided to come at 35w6d. You just never know.

I delivered at 33w6d after a completely smooth, uneventful, low risk pregnancy.  I would have a back-up plan in case something happens, especially if you will lose your job for not taking it.

IF you can, try to take the test as early as they will allow you to. I had a feeling I would deliver earlier than my due date, but thought I had at least another week. I ended up delivering at 37 weeks & 3 days. Up to that point though, I felt great…sleep of course was a struggle between getting comfortable & having to pee 4-5x per night, lol. 

Like  daisy351 said, try to have a back up plan, otherwise, try to see if they can schedule you as early as possible. Get up and stretch, make sure you have snacks & water on hand, and a bathroom. 

Good luck!!! 🙂
