I don't have any phobias to your extent.Maybe flying is close.To be frank I'm completley opisite of you..the needle doesn't bother me one bit
 

Having to deal with infertility myself there isn't much in the way of tests that don't require some sort of blood or fluid extraction (sorry if TMI)
There will be poking and prodding..so beware. I'm honestly not trying to scare you just making you aware.
But when all is said and done that
 
and baby bump is all that matters.
 

I hope you that its a short journy for you and you don't need that second draw.

 
Good Luck!!!

Welcome, I have a fear of needles, but not a bad phobia. Im a bit better with blood work then I am with shots. Im not sure why. lol
all i can say is do what works best for you, If the medicane works then take it but let your doctors know all about your phobia and what meds you take.

also prepare yourself the best you can and think of only good thoughts like how you could get pregnant soon and how it only takes a few min to get the blood drawn and then your anxiety will go down. also the more you expose yourself to it the less it will bother you.
good luck and I hope you get a bfp soon

Wow...it does really seem like an endless stretch of needles, and I don't think I can just keep doing "one more time" given how low our odds are and that I cannot find anyone else with a phobia this bad who has gotten through it.

I think we may just stop now and not move forward with TTC. It is a heart-breaking choice, and it is entirely my own fault. Thanks to all of you for the advice and good luck to all.
