I want to take my piggies to the vet but they're still too scared for me to pick them up

As the title says, I really want to take my piggies to the vet to see if anything's wrong with them but they're still too scared. What should I do? Should I wait longer until I can pick them up or what?

Picking them up in a tunnel or fleecy sleeping bag is the way to go! Only 1 of our 6 piggies can usually be scooped up easily by hand without getting scared, and since her vet trip-skin tests-yucky baytril experience this weekend she's not letting us near her, not even for watercress which is her favorite!
