I think I have a hernia!!! Please help

When I was younger I had sergery for a hernia, I think it has come back out I am 26weeks pregnant and I am scared. Will this affect the pregnancy? Will there be any complications? I have a doctor's appointment on the 15th so that will confirm if that's what is it or if it's something else...Please help

  • I had a hernia when I was pregnant. It's normal for your hernia to feel as though it reappears b/c one of the layers of your abdominal muscles seperate and the others stretch. THey can't do anything for it when you are pregnant. Mine hurt sometimes and I'd have to push the intestine back in...gross I know. But, after I had the baby it got better.
