Can I just mention that the test isn't given to every single pregnant woman. It depends on risk factors. Those with a high BMI or previous GD would be offered it. Other wise it's only offered if a urine/blood test shows signs that may indicate GD. And no offense but I highly doubt it would be offered at 10 weeks as the pregnancy is not classed as viable until confirmed by a 12wks scan. Most midwives won't even see you for a booking in appointment until at least 10 weeks and the Nhs is not that speedy at arranging appointments, lol.
I had one done in my last pregnancy and I had to drink half a small cup of syrupy lemon drink. So it's not general Nhs practice to force lucozade upon pregnant women, it's only certain areas that use lucozade for their tests.
