It is really easy. Just relax. Most people stress out so much before and are surprised after that it was really not bad at all. Make sure you drink plenty of water beforehand, makes it easier to draw blood. Relax your arm and just look the other way. You will feel a slight pinch. After it is over they will give you cookies and or juice and have you lay down for a short time. And, it is a great cause:)

Thank you thats helpful but if i do, i want to expect it so would it be during or after the procedure when its most likely to happen?

It usually does not happen. If it did it would be after. You might feel a little light headed. That is why they give you something sweet, helps your blood sugar. I have been drawing blood for years! Never had anyone pass out on me. You are going to be great:)

You won't pass out. Just stay calm and let the professionals handle everything. You'll do just fine.

It's fine, they don't take to much blood and the give you snacks afterwards. If you like ask for a butterfly needle it hurts less.

Just make sure to eat well before you go, if you start to feel funny, be sure to tell someone and you should be fine!

When you're done just get into an upright standing position real slow. If anything were to happen this would be the most likely point.
