The Human Pincushion

It's a good thing that I don't have a fear of needles, then again doing a cycle of IVF probably would have cured me of that fear anyway.  Today I went in for my APA and NK cell blood work.  When I made the appointment the nurse warned me that they would be taking 7 vials of blood.  I warned her that this ought to be fun since I have really bad veins.  She recommended drinking lots of water the night before.  I drank a big glass of water before bed and drank a bottle of water when I woke up.  It didn't help.  It took 5 nurses and 4 needle sticks to draw 7 vials of blood.  I get to go in Friday for CD 3 blood work.  Just call me the human pincushion.
