So I've just been to my 1st scan for my 2nd baby. Everything is well with bub!! But on the ultrasound they showed me I've got a "15 x 10.5x 15.4 cm subserosal fibroid at the fundus of the uterus extending to the umbilicus" ??? I've got an appointment on Monday with an consultant to talk to me and my partner about it but I'm totally clueless, I've had no symptoms or heavy bleeding ?? Apparently the baby is ok but has anyone had this? Or knows anything? I'm a bit stressed. My parter is at work and it's kind of marring out new baby announcement. If it's bad news be kind please xx I'm Delicate x
This kind of fibroid is very common, and often symptomless (at least until vast).
The snag is if they grow during pregnancy (and not all do), then - together with the growing baby - this can make your abdomen rather crowded. The consultant may well recommend addional scans, just to keep an eye on what it is doing.
