What does an Amnio testing feel like?

I am currently 33 weeks and 1 day (today 4/20). I have been in the hospital since I was 30 weeks and 5 days because of uterine wall thinning. My doctor was having issues seeing my uterine wall this morning during the ultrasound, and said she wants to deliver.
She plans to do an Amnio, but I am wondering.. is it going to hurt? What does it feel like and how long are they 'in there'?

Thanks in advance to those who reply.

  • I had an Amnio done when I was 20 weeks or so pregnant. I don't remeber feeling any pain though. Just when the needles goes in. Make sure you have someone there to hold your hand and stay as still as posible. It doesn't take very long, maybe 10-15 minutes. Good luck to you and I hope all goes well.
