    How long does it take you to fill up the blood bag with the amount needed?

    First donation: 14 mins 30 secs
    Second donation: around 12 mins
    Third donation today: 7 mins 8 seconds

    I promptly almost feinted afterwards, so embarrassing!

    What times do you get?

    The first donation was in winter so I count that as a 'wet lap'.

    1st time was about 20 mins
    2nd was about 30 mins and I couldn't even do it till the end - they were so careless at THAT centre

    But they take a pint and a bit, so who knows

    Takes them the maximum amount of time they're allowed to keep the needle stuck in there to get the minimum amount of blood they need from me.

    Apparently I have 'alarmingly tiny veins'.
