    Default ASD and blood tests

    soooooo the boys needs a blood test! their very first blood test (as we are getting genetic testing+ counciling done)

    and...im actually very very worried about how this is actually going to happen. mr 7 lost the plot at me getting a splinter our of his foot! so a blood test? with a needle that goes in the arm for longer than a microsecond! how is this going to work?

    dont get me started on my incredible hulk almost 3 yr old!!

    please tell me someone has experience with this, and tells me some magic sollution to making this fine, and me not ending up with broken cheek bones from the thrashing about they will both do?

    dreaddddddding this.

    Have you heard of EMLA cream?

    It's a topical anaesthetic you put on an hour before, so that the needle is 99% painless.

    You can buy it at an chemist without a prescription and it's about $10.

    No worries, my 3.5 yr old had to have a blood test recently, and it was brilliant.

    The nurse even gave her a certificate for being brave and she thought it the bees knees lol.

    Good luck!!

    We explained to my then 5yo that a scientist was going to look at his blood which made him very excited to have it taken. He was in hospital at the time so the nurses used that cream beforehand. My DS has PDD.

    Write him a quick social story so he knows what is going to happen. Make sure you read to him a few times before the test.
