I was only going to have the screening done, but now I'm considering the amnio. Is this painful?

I had mine on the 3rd. I felt a pin prick as the needle went in.

Good that it went well, Elise - have you the result yet?


My amniocentesis for my last pregnancy was not painful - just like an injection, really. They rub your tummy with something to anaesthetize it anyhow. The worst thing is feeling sick with worry before and after it.
