I am 9 weeks pregnant and my doctor can't see the baby. She told me that i have fibroids. I have been spotting off and on for the past two weeks. I am so nervous about everything because i go to the doctor every week hoping to hear some could news but i don't. Could it be that the fibroids could be bigger than the fetus.
Hello, congratulations on your pregnancy. I had fibroids with my first pregnancy, however they didn't develop until late into my 2nd trimester. I had about 4 of them--the largest was the size of a plum. Fortunately, they shrunk later in my third trimester, and eventually they dissolved. In your case, I don't know if your fibroids will be an obstacle in how your pregnancy continues. I know fibroids can get pretty large, but to what extent they pose potential risk to a developing fetus, I don't know. Talk with your doctor about it, get the answers you need. Fibroids are very common in pregnancy, your OB should have given you better insight. I wish you the best, and please keep us posted.
I am not sure how to answer this. I too have fibroids, but as far as I know it shouldn't get in the way of seeing the baby. Now I am certainly not a Dr., and I have no doubt that every case is a bit different. What is your Dr.'s opinion and what are your HCG levels? I wish you well, and am sorry you are going through all this stress.
