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

I had a fibroid that was discovered at a pregnancy scan. Dd was using it as a pillow! I had no idea it was there until then. The person doing the scan said it was very common for women to have no idea they had a fibroid until they had a scan but I should bear it in mind if I had problems period-wise in the future. About 7 years after dd was born, my periods suddenly became stupidly heavy and yes, scans showed that my fibroid had grown. I had it removed via d&c and no further issues.

Try not to worry flowers
