When Claire was 2 weeks old, she had to have blood drawn--from her VEIN--because one of the genetic tests they screened for at the hospital came up positive (luckily, it ended up being a false positive and everything is ok). My husband sat with her while the phlebotomist had to poke her THREE TIMES (the first time, she missed the vein...then she went in the other arm, but only got half the amount she needed, so she had to go back to the first arm again). I just sat in the hallway and sobbed, because she was screaming her head off and it was the most horrid thing in the entire world.

So I totally feel your pain. I'm really not looking forward to the 2-month appointment.
