Has anyone done this test before? How painful is it?

i heard it's pretty painless but it depends on the people

I had to do 2 steroid jabs recently to help mature baby’s lungs. Those were painful. But normally when I take blood/do normal jabs, it’s not painful. I chose not to do the amniocentesis in the end because I didn’t want to be subjected to the risks.
