Can anyone tell me what to expect at the sugar testing? I know they take blood- anything else? Do they do another ultrasound ? Thanks! Also, when are you considered through your second trimester ?

JoJo, I did my glucose screening last week and they just had me drink a syrupy drink, wait an hour and then they drew blood. I think that is pretty standard and I've never heard of an ultrasound with it. Most guide books say that you begin your 3rd tri with the beginning of 27 or 28 weeks.

Hi....im having mine in a few weeks and how Becca describes it is exactly what my OB said happens...you go and drink syrup drink, sit still for one hour in the pathology clinc/lab, and then they take your blood....so take a book! hehe

Thanks! I already have my orange crush drink that they gave me at my last appt. They told me to take 30 minutes before my appt. I was just curious if they did any other testing with this besides bloodwork. Thanks girls for the updates!!
