  • I found out I have a fibroid earlier in my pregnancy. I'm 33 wks. now. You need to talk to doc about that because you can have babies but there can be complications. I'm having a c-section because my last pregnancy I had one. Even if my last pregnancy wasn't a c-section it would of been possible to get a c-section anyway because of the fibroid. Plus if your 35+ your considered high risk for your baby having down syndrome, like mine. I'm getting my tubes tyed after this one.

  • This is something you should be asking your Dr. He can better tell you if, for instance, the fibroids are making it more difficult or if there may be something else at play. The only thing I can do is tell you the experience of a man my husband worked with back in the 80's. This couple had 5 girls...they had 5 girls because they after the first girl, they tried for a boy...and so on. Well she began developing fibroid tumors and the Dr. told them if they wanted to have another child, to do it soon or they may not be able to. They talked about it and decided they could afford one more child and hopefully it would be that little boy. She got pregnant and 9 months later delivered a healthy happy baby a matched set of 3. I know this doesn't in any way answer your question, just thought you might find it a bit encouraging. DO discuss your concerns with your Dr.

  • how old are you... if you are under 35 then Drs will talk to you about fertility treatments after actively trying for a year... if you're over 35 then 6 months
