I went to the doctor on the 8th and had my first Sono. Little bean is healthy with a heart rate of 175bpm. When my doctor's nurse came in she was all smiles, congratulated us and said that Everything was healthy and looked great.
Her words were, " You do have a uterine fibroid. These are common in African American women. They are benign growths and that grow with different hormone level changes. Yours is the size of a golf ball right now. From the looks of things it should not have ant negative affect on your pregnancy. It will continue to grow during the duration of your pregnancy, but again, there should not be a problem, but we will continue to monitor it."
If she says that I am ok, AM I?. Has any one else had a uterine Fibroid during pregnancy and if so were you able to deliver naturally? Does a fibroid mean that I should look into just having a regular hospital birth and for go trying to find a birth center and do it the natural way outside of a hospital?
My next appointment is Nov 5th and I will be asking them all these questions. I just wanted to see if anyone on here has some insight.
