    Default Holy Rhogam!

    I remembered from last time that the Rhogam injection was painful, but HOLY SMOKES! I was very quiet and still, the perfect patient, but when it was over I told the nurse that it really hurt. She said "yeah, that's because it's a HUGE needle!" and she showed it to me (I would never voluntarily look). It was at LEAST 4 inches long and thick! It must have gone into my bone marrow it looked so big. Must be a lot of volume too because it took forever for it to all go in. My feet, knees, back, pits, hands, and forehead were sweating by the time it was over. Can't wait for the dose at delivery...(and last time I got two post delivery doses because titres were high, oy...).

    Maybe I have a mean nurse that chose a ridiculous needle or something. I really don't remember it being as bad as it was yesterday. Or maybe she hit a nerve or something... Today its just a little sore, not bad.

    Had it today and saw the needle after - was definitely a long one (doc hid it from me before). Also, she did it in my arm, no butts involved! Actual shot didn't really hurt much but my arm is def sore now... I hope these babies all come out perfectly behaved (and sleeping through the night!) - they owe us that much!
