    @wonderstruck, i’m the same way about needles! i learned a long time ago that if they use a smaller needle and take the blood from my hand, i’m less likely to pass out. i just can’t do the whole arm thing. even typing this is making me queasy. whenever i have to get blood taken, i just tell the tech that i need it taken from my hand and they oblige. they can already tell i’m freaked out because i’m usually in full on panic mode by the time i get to them so they’re really nice about it. i’m not pregnant yet but i’m nervous about all the bloodwork that might be invloved when i do get pregnant.

    Just by chance I got the shot just before I became pregnant. I get it every year as my work provides it for free. If I had not gotten it, my doc would have given it to me at my 12 week appt.

    I didn’t get one before I was pregnant, I got it at about 28 weeks pregnant or so.
