I've had 2 lung amnios, one at 36 weeks 0 days and one at 37 weeks, due to rh sensitization. Both times baby was ready & needed no help breathing outside of a little chest PT. No NICU or separation. My husband was the one to do the chest PT.
As for how it feels, well, its not very pleasant, but its not that bad either. One I watched, one I didn't watch. I think the one where my eyes were closed actually was easier. I would say its not as painful as you might think, but the feeling of entering the uterus can cause a contraction & its not easy to deal with b/c you have to stay very still. If I had to do it again I might bring music or ask them to put a radio on. It does go pretty fast & then I highly recommend taking it easy for the rest of the day. Good luck!
