Fetal Anatomic Survey?

I am 15 weeks preggo, my doctor wants me to take a fetal anatomic survey in 3 weeks because they saw something wrong. I heard a needle will be injected in my uterus...I personally do not want any sort of needle close to my baby. Can someone explain to me what exactly it is and if its dangerous or your experience? Thanks! :)

I would suggest a second opinion and asking the dr, you will get more accurate advice and info for you specifically from a dr. Best of luck.
