I've got mine next week and have managed to 'misplace' the letter that came with it (i also wrote down the date/time in several places for different times!). You'd think i'd remember from last time but i've forgotten the rules.
Am i not allowed to eat just that morning, night before is fine isn't it?
Can i sip water?
Anything else?? I'll take food for afterwards!!
I've already called them to confirm date and didn't think to ask on the phone. Took ages to get through to the right clinic bit so i don't want to call back again. Really not looking forward to it, i fainted in the waiting room between blood tests last time. That was embarrassing!

I couldn't eat from 10pm the night before. Water is fine.
Hope it goes ok this time. I didn't faint, but the gassy lucozade gave me terrible wind and because I was stuck in antenatal and couldn't let it out I ended up with crippling stomach cramps!

for me it was 12 hours before, so my appt was at 8.30am so i couldnt touch anything from 8.30pm night before. and yeah only water, I had a sore throat/cold at the time and they told me i couldnt drink a lot of water. only a tiny sip to wet my throat. I didnt really understand what the water could possibly do buy hey ho. I have to have my second one in 4 weeks and I'm not looking forward to it, its the waiting around that kills me

Oh gosh. Autumn why did you faint? Because you hadn't eaten or because of the solution they give you? I have mine on Monday!
Mine is the same as what OB has said - nothing after 10pm but water is ifne.
