When I was on placement with the health visitors, a new mum just handed her baby to me and told me to take him in for his first jab!

She sat in the waiting room bawling- while im sat in the Drs room with a wriggly 8 week old screaming his head off!

God I didn't just cry, I had hysterics and had to be taken in to a side room and THEN had to be asked to leave after 10 minutes and me and ds were upsetting other patients

the shitty horrible nurse said in a sarky way "well it's easy to see YOU have bonded with your baby"

"asked to leave after ten minutes AS me and ds were upsetting the other patients"

my poor little mimine almost never cries, and this morning I could see the pain in her eyes, the ig tears rolling...2 jabs, one in each leg, I have got to ask dh to go instead of me...cant deal with it

Oh I cried and cried and cried when DD1 had her first jab. I just wasn't expecting it to be as horrific as it was. She was giving me a beautiful little smile and when they injected her I will never forget the look on her little face. DH or my Mum took her for the rest of the jabs. The HV thought I had post natal depression with DD2 as when I walked in the room to sign the form I burst out crying. My Mum then took over whilst I waited outside.

dd BLED when she had her first ones - I sobbed all the way home (TBH I think I've struggled with all the jabs she's had even the last ones when she was over 2 ).

yes i cried
my mum took her for the 2nd lot, i couldn't bear it.

you're normal. there were always lots of mums in bits after the 1st jabs. that piercing scream from the bottom of their tummy. i still hear it now.

didn't bother me as much with DD2... hardened a bit by then (and looking forward to an afternoon of peace where she slept after the calpol )
