Good Day
The size of the Fibroid is relatively small to be significant. But you may need to keep monitoring if it grows in size of spontaneously it may bleed in and may cause pain. Please report to the Doctor if you ever have severe abdominal pain in this regard.

Hi there,

Welcome to

It is very common to find small fibroids in most women by the age of 30.
They tend to grow during pregnancy due to the hormonal changes and might cause issues if they grow big enough.
But regular monitoring by your Obstetrician will ensure that the fibroid is not causing any issues.
So all I would suggest is relax as of now and go for regular antenatal checkups with your Obstetrician.

Hope this helps. Take care of yourself and the baby.
