    well....that was a long morning..

    got to hospital at 9am.....got into appt at 9:45 cos the girl before me had even worse veins than me it would appear and they struggled to get anything out of her!!

    so first lot was fine, cos i knew which was my 'good vein'....so first time....yippeee....then the drink, which was not too bad. to be honest i was so thirsty i would have drank anything!!!

    so back into the waiting room for 2 hours.........then the dreaded blood taking attempt 2...FAIL...i knew it.....tried another vein...FAIL....then finally at a 3rd attempt...got some..yippeeeee........to think 12 months ago i had a serious needle phobia, i am so bloody proud of myself...

    did all my normal antenatal checks too and boo boo still not engaged but is still lying long and head down, so thats good. BP fine (even after the needle trauma) and wee fine and HB fine...so so far so good. get the GTT results on Tuesday....fx...

    oh yeah...well and truly cured....last jan it took me lying on a bed with sam holding me down and 2 other nurses....lol

    now...i go on my own and dont even flinch!! i have found watching what they are doing helps me......have to admit it was a bit sore when she tried the same vein again the second time.....only cos she'd already been in there once...and i did let out a little 'ow'...lol....xx
