Bit erm, anxious.... I have a rare neuro condition which means that anything that invades my body can make it worse (among other things) and that includes needles, so unless it's really important, they can't have blood from me - but everything they test for can be found on my med records anyway...apart from anaemia, but I know I've gone anaemic cause under my eyelids have gone white. Don't mind bloods being taken if its important, but if its just for sake of it, - it's not happening! I'm not putting my baby at risk (a spread will make white blood cells attack my body) unless it's vital! So...does anyone have any suggestions on how to tell MW about the condition I have? I have brochures and info, but I've heard some of these midwifes are mini hitlers! lol and to be honest, I'm sick of trying to explain complex condition to people who should've looked it up anyway, they've known in advance about it!
