  • It felt like a quick pinch, a bee sting, but it doesn't last long. The nurses were joking with me while I had mine and I barely felt anything.

  • I had one and it was not bad at all. Just like missanc described. Don't worry. You'll be OK. :)

  • Bee sting and slightly uncomfortable, but that's it. Try to relax; it's going to fine.

  • No, it's not that bad. I was scared, too! The shot to numb it stung- it did feel like a bee sting. The spinal itself just felt... Odd. I could feel it, but it wasn't uncomfortable. You'll be just fine, doll baby!
