  • @beane4018 YES make DH do it.....!  They need 2 vials for these tests... sammies dad said "wasn't it just a finger prick"?  I WISH....  ALSO try to get LO to drink lots of fluids ... common sense but I forgot about that ...get those veins plump

    Note I also HATE getting mine drawn ....

  • We did our first stick draw last month and it was awful. Poor LO was so upset. One of the nurses leaned down in front of her and said things like "don't worry. I'm going to whomp that nurse when she is done. I'm going to tear her up".

    ....which was interesting because  I had never heard anyone use the term "tear" in reference to spanking...and also interesting because since when is the spanking of anyone comforting.

    ..but at the time, it made me - the one holding LO - feel better, so there is that.
  • Poor Sammie!

    They always do the finger or heel if they need blood from K. Also, my nephew has been getting shots in the arms since 12 months. K will only get them in the leg for quite a while longer. The nurse said their arms are too little and tender to make them go through that. This is the same nurse that bribes K with an extra book each time.
