I did a couple of times but then started travelling a lot for work to countries that have high incidences of a disease (I can't remember what) that means you can't donate blood for a while. Once the waiting period is up I'll start donating again. Having a baby is a good excuse at work to get out of travelling

I'm not allowed as I lived in the uk during the Mad Cow fiasco. I totally would have otherwise.

I started when I was at school but haven't since I was pregnant with ds I've been pregnant, breastfeeding or trying to get pregnant ever since. DH has done it a few times with me but due to the distance to the donor centre and opening times and him working he hasn't done it for a few years. They ring up every now and again to get him to donate, prob cause he's o neg.

I'm lucky to have had a mother who I always watched donate. (And am A- so recieve VERY prompt reminders of when I can donate!!)
Lets hope that if & when I get the bone marrow donation call-up that I'm eligible. It would break my heart to get the call and coincidentally be pregnant/ill or something.

I have never given blood, as I used to have a phobia of needles that would see me black out / lash out. Now its only injections so I actually enquired about donating.. have to wait until bub is 9 months old and I am no longer breastfeeding, then hubby & I plan to do it together :-)
I have never needed blood.

I really want to, I'm so terrified of needles but I think I need to get over it!

Not allowed to as I lost consciousness while donating once. Automatic life disqualification apparently my body doesn't cope well with donating. I was fine with the needle but started feeling light headed after they took about 200 mls.
