FSH blood draw, 1 vial. TSH draw, 1 vial. Full thyroid and immune system panel 4 vials. Progesterone draw on Friday. Can I just get pregnant without having to give up half my blood in the process? I should have my results from today on Friday. *sigh*

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

I feel your pain. I'm glad I'm not my DH. Kidney disease which causes him to be a bleeder and intestinal disorder. 3 vials every week for the last 2 years. When he was in the hospital a few years ago, he had to have a stint in his upper arm. Much easier.

blood draws can be so frustrating. I think I have had my blood drawn about 15 times this year so far. . . so I know how you feel! I am tired of weekly visits to the vampires.

I hope your results are all good! Fx for you!

Thanks ladies. I wish that none of us knew this pain, but alas, we will do a lot to get our rainbows.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

Urgh yeah, being a human pincushion is no fun. The nurse who took my blood a couple of months ago said that I was starting to get scar tissue because of all the blood draws, so I started offering up the other arm to even things out a bit

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you!

1 partial molar pregnancy and 2 ectopics. Read my story here.
