Do you have anyone else who could ***** you so you don't have to? I'm scared to death of needles too, I am not even getting the epidural because I am scared for them to put a needle in my spine and I get so queasy whenever I am stuck with one. Just keep telling yourself that your doing it for the baby to make sure she's healthy :) It'll be over soon!!
I'm not afraid of needles. I just dont want to stick myself.. My husband could do it but I'm not trusting him with anything sharp lol.. My son is the only way I can get through it. I couldve taken pills but they would be ineffective.. I guess after the first few times I will feel a little better about it
by no means am i telling you to suck it up, you have the right to be stressed and express your feelings(yes it s ucks!) but think of the positive that this is only temporary and there are children and even toddlers that have type one diabetes that have to go through that daily for their whole lives... and of course adults too... diabetes isnt fun and it takes so much dedication to stay healthy! less than a month to go and the reward is worth everything! congrats on your pregnancy! take care :)
PS i have to go for my second sugar test and 2 days ago i met a girl whos son was diagnosed with type 1 when he was 2... so thats what i brought it up... its just a reminder of how lucky we really are
That *****.. I was just telling my mom that I shouldn't feel so bad since there are worse off ppl than me in this situation. Plus mine will most likely go away after I deliver.. I'm greatful for that. I think one of the main things is thinking I'm sticking my baby even though in not.. Lol time to focus and trick my mind back to positivity!
I misread that part about not being afraid of needles, sorry. You are braver than I am if you aren't scared of them lol.
I have been taking Lovenox shots for the past 20 weeks. After a week, it just becomes part of your routine. I am glad you dont have to do it for long! :)
