I had an early scan a couple of weeks ago and they found a fibroid at the top of my uterus. She wasn’t concerned about it (it’s not close to the baby), but my midwife has said that I’ll need to be under consultant care and have regular scans to keep an eye on it. Just making me feel anxious about it!! Anyone had anything similar?

A follicle or a cyst? Your follicles are usually in your ovaries?

@Amy hahahaha thank you SO MUCH for this - I got my f’s mixed up 🤣🤣 it’s a fibroid not a follicle 🤣🤦🏻‍♀️ can I claim pregnancy brain in my first trimester?

You absolutely can!! I don’t know much about fibroids, only cysts, but it’s good you’re being kept an eye on ❤️

I have a few fibroids with the largest being about 7-8cm and already look like I’m 20 weeks instead of 10 weeks. I’m yet to see the midwife(next week) but wouldn’t be alarmed if I’m being referred to the consultant too. Fibroids are very common among black women and must people I know have at least 1. Fibroids love an environment with rich blood supply and nutrients and may growth in size along with pregnancy, hence the possible reason for being cautious and letting a consultant handle things. However,if you didn’t notice until now that you have fibroids, it probably wasn’t causing you pain, heavy periods or bleeding which could happen with fibroids. Just trust them and ask questions from your care team. Would let you know when I see the midwife 💪🏾

@Naomi it hope this helps

@Missy thank you SO much this is super helpful!!! Really grateful for your response. I got a letter today booking me in for a telephone appointment with the consultant in September, so presumably they aren’t too concerned yet 😂 they won’t be able to see the fibroid through the phone 😂
