Hi there!

I can certainly understand your anxiety. A needle in your tummy never sounds like much fun. I have not had the test done myself but I did want to share a link with you to a thread I found on the topic. The thread is fairly old but it has some great information that you may find helpful.

Wishing you the very best of luck! Please let us know how the procedure goes.

I've never had this done, but I hope it all ends up well. Think of it as practice for an epidural (except switch stomach for back), lol. Good luck and let us know how it goes!
