My name is Kristin. I had my very first doctor's appointment today and I am 12 weeks 4 days. I have not been classified as high risk but that could change depending on what the specialist says.
I have this very round belly, that I thought was just where I carried all my fat, I've had this belly for well over a year now. And its very hard. My doc took one look and feel and thought right away I had fluid or a cyst in my abdomen. I went straight to the radiology department to have an ultrasound of the baby (who is doing wonderful) and of my abdomen. We spent an hour in there getting lots of measurements and pics.
The doc called me shortly after I returned home with the results that the tech wrote up and it confirmed I had a very large cyst. He is referring me right away to Loma Linda hospital (I live in California) which is a very excellent hospital with lots of great specialists. Which makes me feel better. My doc thinks at the least I will need to have it drained within the next few weeks before I get further along in my pregnancy. He thinks the cyst will interfere with the growth of the uterus and baby and would cause other complications.
Little nervous about all this and not sure what it all means or entails. But thought this might be a good place to hang out just in case.... hope that is ok.
hi kristin...so sorry to hear about the cyst...it's good that they found it so early and you're getting it treated (maybe the baby helped you out by alerting the doc to it!?!)...all the best to you and keep us updated!
