If you have a uterine fibroid during pregnancy and it causes spotting - is that something that could injure the baby? Would you consider that an emergency?
My ultrasound picked up a uterine fibroid on Monday (I am 6 weeks today) and the doctor is having me come in on Monday.
I started spotting again, which is a symptom of the fibroid apparently. I am wondering if I should press for an earlier appointment - her colleague is available tomorrow, but said that it was no big deal to wait until Monday.
What would you do?
I experienced that issue with 2 pregnancies. I bled heavily after birth, but it did not significantly effect my pregnancy. I would assume that it would depend greatly on the location of the fibroid.

Next question overall
Did you express interest in your man right away or did you play it cool?
