    Just stay relaxed and your baby will be too.
    You are not mean and he is not some nasty man - you are doing the best for your baby and if you didn't take him then the outcome could be so much worse. This will be over in seconds and then he'll be chirpy again.
    Honestly, not feel bad or stressed because he will pick up on it.
    You'll both be fine xx

    Relax !!! The needles used today are so fine your baby will hardly feel a thing.

    If you are anything like me you will cry more than him.

    Take comfort in the fact that you are being a good, loving, responsible parent.

    Thanks guys, I know it's what's best for him - nasty man with a needle was more thinking of it from his perspective!

    Hopefully like you say it'll be more traumatic for me than him and I'll try to make sure he doesn't pick up on my feelings - last thing I want to do is make it worse.

    Think we'll walk there and back - its a good 30 mins. Maybe can clock up some body magic as consolation!

    I'm jealous of how close to goal you are! I'm loving being a mummy - he's my first and is 9 weeks today. Take it you're planning on starting a family soon then?
