Probably not as bad as you but have been known to need a lie down. I found that by the end of my 1st pregnacy it had got a bit better. It is down to who is doing it.

That said I couldn't look at the epidural needle in antenatal class and have even managed to have an amnio.

I've found everyone I've encountered to be very understanding.
