Ok so as some of you might know Im being induced tonight, and my wholr family is laughing at me and saying Im weird because I am having anxiety attacks about getting the damn IV. Before anyone says i dont have to get an iv I have gbs and Feel safer getting the antibodics. I also plan to have a pain med/epidural FREE birth. And I getting laughed at because Im scared of what they say is a tiny little prick. Anyone else dont do needles very well?

 I am terrified of needles. With my first baby the worse thing i remember was them giving me the iv. but i really get sick and faint sometimes when i have to get blood taken or have an iv. I have opted for drug free deliveries for all my kids because of my fear

ohhhh i am the same way. i absolutly hate hate hate hate hate hate needles!!!! i did fine for the iv but that was me looking away and having a lady comfort me and know what she was doing. as for the pain med, i had a c section unfortunatly so i had the spinal it didnt hurt hurt but it wasnt comfortable either. it almost made me pass out actually. i was having hot flashes the whole nine yards. laying up on the operation table is when it all sunk in, this is really happening. then my dd came out and i didnt believe she was mine lol, it all happend sooooo fast, i said noooooo way!!!!! haha, but congrats, and good luck tonight!!
