I hate needles aswell, I get all clamy and shaky if I know I got to get a shot or blood drawn. Im more afraid of getting the IV than I am goin thru labor. Im 31weeks with my first.

Talk to your doctor about this, he may be able to help you. But fair warning you may want to start preparing your self now, pregnancy sometimes comes with a lot of needles. Ive had to get blood drawn 8 times now.

Just remember you have nothing to worry about, tell yourself that your brain is just making your body afraid because in reality you have nothing to fear. Any time I have a panic attack, for any reason needles or anything, thats what I tell myself over and over and it helps me get thru it

I have panic attacks all the time. I am bipolar and have severe panic disorder and I can't take my regular medication so like I said I get them all the time and i have the whole pregnancy. I am now 30w5d with a healthy baby boy :) I went to the dentist for fillings a few days ago abd it didnt happen either lol
