Has anyone else had a hernia while pregnant?

My doctor told me I have a small hernia on my left side. It's a little tender, but not too bad. I was too surprised to think of questions at the time, and am now waiting for her to call me back. But in the meantime, I'm scared to do anything and am more than a little grossed out. Will i need surgery? How can I push for delivery? Any feedback at all would help!
Thanks to all!

  • I've never had a hernia before, not even while I was preg.
    I did get cramps in that area sometimes, but the pain would be gone by the time I went to bed. If its a small hernia, I don't think you'll need surgery and I'm prett sure that if it's small it should go away by the time you need to push.
    Good Luck
