Listening Pregnant and taking the test - question

Hello everybody!
This might be an extremely stupid question but I'm going to ask anyway.
I'm pregnant and will be taking step 1 next week. Anyway, as some of you can imagine it's not the most comfortable situation, especially sitting for hours in a chair and so on. Anybody done this before or had other issues that needed to be addressed.
I mean, is there anything, special arrangements that can be made (I don't know, maybe a cushion, a footstep, whatever...).
Thanks for your help!
I'm freaking out as it is because I'm really nervous about the test. This is just an additional factor!

I had a friend take it last year while 8 months pregnant and she did well. Her baby is now this cuddly wonderful bundle of joy. Try not to worry too much; if you're really concerned, I would suggest visiting the test center and talking to the folks there to see if they have any suggestions.
Good luck
