What is involved in a glucose test for gestational diabetes?

I want to know if it's a big deal and if I should be worried about it.

They take a blood sample. You drink the sugar flavored water. Wait 2-4 hours. Another blood sample is taken. The only worry is if you have gestational diabetes.

You drink a glucose solution and are tested an hour later to see if you have gestational diabetes. It is important because it can cause rapid growth of the baby.
