    The only thing you can have is water but nothing else.

    If your doing the Glucose Tolerance test you need to fast with the exception of water. Glucose Challenge test (I thought this was the normal 28 week one, unless something else is going on) you don't need to fast.

    I got told not to drink water before and during the test I was allowed a few sips, I got told you can't drink much because it will dilute the drink
