Hi,dont take much stress.Yes go for Tvs .Is truethat fibroid will grow with pregnancy more than otherwise. It should be localised whether inside uterine cavity or wall.If in the wall it will not much harm
Its seen that baby will grow normally but you should be under frequent observation.

OBGYN Dr. Shanti Vennam's  Response
Firstly, diagnosing a fibroid is not easy during pregnancy, owing to the myometrial thickening. You can have a trans-vaginal scan for a better view. Also, your radiologist could be more specific when he reviews you after 2 days. Uterine fibroids are most common in women of reproductive age group but mostly they are asymptomatic. 10-30% of pregnant women with fibroids develop complications; spontaneous miscarriage and bleeding in early trimester and abruption, placenta praevia, preterm labor and fetal anomalies in late pregnancy. Pain is the commonest symptom of a fibroid. A fibroid may grow during early pregnancy but regress during the last trimester. Please correlate your ultrasound findings with your clinical examination and discuss with your doctor regarding further management. Wish you a safe delivery.
