    Yeah I feel for you too, I hate then!!! When I had mine at 12 weeks I was very close to being sick, it was fine when she was doing it but as I had got myself sooooo worked up that after she had taken the needle out I went all hot and sweaty!!

    I was quite funny as the nurse who took the blood was like "oh hang on i'll get you a bowl" really panicked bless her, all i wanted was a drink of water to stop me feeling soooo hot!!!!

    :hug: ahh I'm used to them now, either injecting me with something or take my blood, I'm ok if I don't watch! I must go pale because they always ask I'm I ok.

    I was pleasantly surprised by mine! I'm not usually bothered by needles but it's been a long, long time (probably since I was about 6 or 7) since I last had blood taken. I was a bit squeamish at the thought.

    The midwife had trouble finding a vein and eventually found one on my right arm. I only noticed a slight scratch and was shocked how quickly it was over! I usually bruise at the slightest tap but there's not a mark on me. Hope the next time it's that simple!

    :? i had some basic tests at 6 weeks and when i saw the midwife for 24 week check she said they didnt bother with any more blood tests unless i start showing symptoms of anaemia

    how come everyone else has so many?

    These are the tests done at our hospital..

    Blood type
    Rhesus status
    HIV
    Syphilis
    Hep B
    Rubella status
    Haemoglobin (to test for anaemia)
    Downs/Spina Bifida test (done at 15 weeks, I was too late for this)

    You can opt out of any of them. As I had to have all of them done in one go I felt like half a litre was drained out of me!
