9 month check up

ok i was just wondering if i am the only parent that had to have this. when i took my baby to the doc today for her 9 mo check up i had to take my baby to the hospital to get blood work done. its just the standard lead and hemoglobin was what i was told. i thought it was a prick on the foot but when i got there it was a blood draw for to lil viles of blood. very tramatizing for me and her!! i was wondering if anyone else had to have blood drawn for hemoglobin and lead tests?

We had our 9 month check-up last week and didn't have any blood drawn. It was just a "normal" visit for us. Wow- I think I would have been traumatized too....
