Maybe you'll escape it like I did. They had me all prepped and ready (anterior placenta also) and when they started looking for fluid, the only pocket left was right at her face so they said screw it,not enough fluid, forget the amnio, she has to come out now!!

Carin, it'll be ok. I promise!! I am the biggest wuss, the worst cry baby and the things I have gone through.... and you have gone through... you know what I mean, I hope. The amnio was dealable. I promise! Scary yes. But you can do it!

I had everyone tell me it didn't hurt, and holy crap did it ever. The only reason mine hurt so bad was I had an anterior placenta and the only safe place to stick the needle in was the fundas of my uterus. On top of that, they did it while I was having a contraction. Normally, I guess it's pretty simple and quick. Hopefully your's will be too if you end up needing on.

I tried throwing up just after I got the numbing shot. Anxiety. After that it was "the big one" and I watched the monitor, somehow I was able to disassociate what was in the monitor from what was going on on my belly.
My peri laughed a little when I was apologizing for trying to vomit, he said "well it's not like you run around crashing your belly into things to know what it feels like" Good point.
I think looking back on it, the anxiety was the worst of it.
But I'm glad they did it, because we learned that Natalia wasn't quite ready yet.
The things you do for your kids huh?
Best wishes with everything. Jenn
