Hi Amy,I just came across your post and am in a VERY similar situation. I too am pregnant with 4 very large fibroids. I am currently 18 weeks pregnant and have many of the symptoms that you are experiencing. I feel so alone and sad. I worry constantly about the baby and what affects they will continue to have on this pregnancy. Today I am home again due to heavy bleeding and will see the doctor this afternoon to see if everything is okay. I had a similar episode at 14 weeks, luckily baby was fine. I did end up on bedrest for 1 week. I would love to hear from other ladies who are had successful pregnancies with large fibroids. My fiboids measure 10x11cm, 9cm and 6m. I worry every single day. Please feel free to private email me at I would love the support of others in similar situations.Tatjana

I am 11 weeks pregnant and I have a very large fibroid 12centimeters by 13 centimeters. My uterus is the size of a 20 week pregnancy already. I am very concerned about having a miscarriage. I had one miscarriage already this year due to fibroid. I am considering terminating my pregnancy. I am not getting much help from my obgyn. He said that many women have carried and delivered. I also have very bad back pain, shortness of breath and urgency to urinate and my ribs hurt all the time. Does anyone have any suggestions for me. I am also only 5 feet tall and I am going to be so big. My doctor is already talking about the earliest we can take the baby out. very hard to be happy about a baby like this.
