How It Feels
You will feel a sharp sting or burn in
your belly where the needle is inserted. This lasts for only a few seconds.
When the needle is put into your uterus, you again will feel a sharp cramp for
a few seconds.
When the amniotic fluid is taken out, you may get a
feeling of pulling or pressure in your belly. To keep yourself comfortable,
breathe slowly and relax your belly muscles during the test.
