The last one worked. Lol But my advice don't ever ever let them do your hands. That was the worse. My bf refused to go the store with me . Because he said people would think he beats me. I am still bruised. Not fun but it had to be done.

I don't think I've ever had it put in my hand. I'd bump it so much if they out one there..

That's what I looked like after having my DD. She retried 4 times before giving up and asking another nurse (who got it in one try) for help. Then this same group of nurses tried to put an IV in my DD only to fail multiple times then dropped the vial of blood they took from her on the flooršŸ˜  They ended up getting her IV in her head next to her ear.

I had my hand IV on one of my pregnancies. But didn't hurt like this one.

I refuse to let them put it in my hand again, cause it hurt too much

I went through 8 IVs when I had dd 3 months ago. I had 3 different ones in my hand and also had 3 IVs going at once at one point. I looked like a drug user when they all got taken out. I was so bruised and had so many holes in me from the IVs they used and the spots they tried to use but didn't work.
After the first 2 the nurses didn't even try they just called IV therapy to come start them and even they had trouble.

Definitely no fun!!

With my first, the nurse got it in the first try. With my second, it took 4 people with 2 pokes apiece, and none got it. My dr got it. If he couldn't get it, they were going to do a pic line. I was terrified!
