n131- I am 25 weeks pregnant with twins and I have to take two shots everyday until 6 weeks after my twins are born. Most of the ones you will read on the net only has to take one shot a day the reason I am on them twice a day is because I formed a blood clot in my left leg two weeks ago. At first I didnt want to give myself a shot every 12 hrs. I used to be terrifed of needles. It took me bout 4 days to get used to it 100%. I havent tried the ice thing yet. I guess some people it wont bother as much as others. The reason I even take mine is because its for my twins. I am thankful that my blood clot formed in my leg and not in the pleacnta that could have killed my boys. It is possible to form a blood clot in the pleacnta if that happens then it can kill your baby. That is the main reason why it is easy to take my shots. Just tell yourself its for your baby. I promise you that it wont bother you as bad. At first I worried about the fact of giving myself shots and the little bitty sting(only happens sometimes not bad tho) but after finding out that if I didnt take it could cause me to lose my babies. Trust me it is extremely easy now after knowing that. Over all just tell yourself that its for your baby and try the ice thing. I am gonna try it next time I take my shot which will be in 9 hours. But good luck and like I said its not as bad as people think.View Thread
