As your blood may have boiled up reading that title, why not donate some of it? -

nickelbabe Sun 16-Mar-14 03:14:50

nice work madame!

mine's in may - it's booked for my birthday grin

WildEyedAndCrafty Sun 16-Mar-14 03:19:09

You got me too giraffes! Unfortunately I can't as I've already been a recipient but will bump for you :D

furlinedsheepskinjacket Sun 16-Mar-14 03:22:20

they won't have mine but bumping too

KittyAndTheFontanelles Sun 16-Mar-14 03:36:26

I'm a regular doner but 10 weeks post natal/ breast feeding so can't at the moment.....bumping though.

I know it's not people like us you are hoping to reach though.

I can't do it, due to medical reasons but will keep post active.

confuddledDOTcom Sun 16-Mar-14 03:48:17

grin I like it! I can't donate as mine is sticky and even a blood test have given me a TIA, I hope that you get some good responses though.

Best bait ever.

UncleT Sun 16-Mar-14 04:34:30

Kitty - regular doner? Is that chicken or lamb? You shouldn't gorge on kebabs when pregnant anyway. grin

UncleT Sun 16-Mar-14 04:35:41

Apologies, you're no longer pregnant. Failed to read properly, time for bed.....

Raeray Sun 16-Mar-14 04:57:26

I gave on Wednesday! The donor centre did seem quiet compared to normal - so can well believe that story!

Bearandcub Sun 16-Mar-14 05:17:42

Love it OP! DH is in on Thursday. They won't take mine though.

I am bf 2 wknd old baby, will they not take whilst bf or when will they?--tbh i am too tired at moment to consider it, but would in a couple of months if possible--

AFishCalledBarry Sun 16-Mar-14 06:38:27

Excellent bait! I used to donate regularly and have felt guilty for years that I fell out of the habit. I will look into where I can donate regularly. Thank you.

AFishCalledBarry Sun 16-Mar-14 06:39:07

Locally, not regularly again.

callamia Sun 16-Mar-14 06:40:11

I think you have to be six months post-birth?
You need to get yourself back to normal first.

CoolaSchmoola Sun 16-Mar-14 06:47:57

Mine is booked for April and my much wanted O neg DH is finally allowed to donate as he is now two years post the weird vaccinations the Army gave him, so he's booked in too.

welshnat Sun 16-Mar-14 06:53:19

I donate after pregnancy you have to wait for however many weeks you were pregnant so if you gave birth at 39 weeks that's how long you would have to wait.

I'm in wales where there's a huge shortage so will be donating next week smile

BikeRunSki Sun 16-Mar-14 06:53:57

redcar you have to be as long post birth as you were pg for.

Was a regular donor. Been turned down since dd was born. Now they no longer come to work and I can't get to evenings (no one to babysit, DH away in week). Work too far from walk in centre to get there and back in lunchtime!

Allice Sun 16-Mar-14 06:59:53

Sadly I'm banned as my hg is too low.

superram Sun 16-Mar-14 07:02:38

B- booked for next week

SmileAndNod Sun 16-Mar-14 07:09:36

Used to donate, think I'm allowed to again now as Dd is 8 months. However, DH tried in the last month on his way back from work (they had sent a letter) and they turned him away!

Around here they keep moving sessions, times, locations which makes it very difficult to donate (esp with three DCs in tow). Appointment times are not kept which means you have a very long wait..

So, for now, we have given up. Would like to get back to it as it's a good thing to do and I like biscuits.

ilovecolinfirth Sun 16-Mar-14 07:15:33

Love it! Thank you for the reminder. You prompted me to look up my next appointment! I started donating after the hospital started keeping some back for me in the last 6 weeks of pregnancy as it looked like something could go wrong. Fortunately it didn't. Now, not only do I feel like I'm giving back but I also have a great time escaping the kids, reading a good book and getting tea and biscuits, everyone'S a winner! smile
