Fibroids &amp  Pregnancy
Would like a second opinion, I went to my gynae on friday 6th august, and it was confirmed that i have a fibroid. I am 13 weeks pregnant. He did not seem to pertubed about the fibroid but did mention that it could affect the babys growth and space? Gynae is hoping it will shrink?
I want to know is do i have to be worried? Am i likely to miscarry because of this fibroid?

How big is the fibroid and where in the womb is it? Most women do not miscarry with fibroids, expecially if they are less than 5 cm.
