Catheter-- how bad is it, really?

Maybe I don't want to know the answer to this one, but at my pre-op consult this week, I learned that the catheter is inserted before I get the spinal. I've noticed on some of the c-section birth plans that one of the requests is to do the catheter after the anesthesia has taken effect, which makes me worry.
Is it really that bad? I was catheterized once, briefly, during an ER visit, but I was in so much pain that I barely noticed. Is it terribly painful, or just uncomfortable, or what? Ah, the things I find to worry myself over :0)
