Miscarry?

I am 8wks pregnant. I had an ultrasound today and was told baby looked good strong heartbeat (148) but the kicked is I have a mass the size of my uterus on my uterus, what are the chances I can miscarry? Has this happened to anyone else? I have been moved to a high risk clinic for better care....Yes as far as they know it is a fibroid

  • It's hard to say your exact chances. Most fibroids go away on their own, some require surgery. Your specific risk depends on how big it is and it's location. If it won't pose a huge threat they might ignore it and opt for a c-section to remove it at the time of birth. However it may need to be addressed sooner. Even still it may go away by itself. Your doctor is the best one to answer this for you.
