Hi, I am 20 years old, I am 15-16 weeks pregnant. I have a 7cm fibroid. I have been to emergency rooms, my obgyn, & even urgent cares just to make sure me & the baby are still okay, because I have been bleeding on & off and they all have said it's because of the fibroid. My cervix is closed and the last time I bled which was the second time, I did not have any clots and it wasnt nearly as heavy as the first time but the baby was still great and my cervix is still closed. The bleeding only last for a few hours then will start to dry up and go away Now, I am always nervous that I will bleed again and I will miscarry. I have never been pregnant before so I am really new to all of this and I know every pregnancy is different. All the doctors say I am okay and the baby is still doing great. For the past 3 days I have been experiencing sharp discomfort in my right side on my abdomen, the baby is on the left side, and I dont feel any discomfort there. And I have been feel pressure in my vaginal area, but havent been bleeding. I dont know if it's gas or the baby may be moving alot more now, or if it's the fibroid. My doctor and the emergencies told me I will feel discomfort from time to time because of my fibroid. I'm not having cramping pains though. I have been having head aches, but just at night. Has anyone else been going through this and had the same answers from the doctor. I'm just so worried, but I feel like I can never be too sure when it comes to my child.

My sister had a fibroid the size of a softball when she was pregnant with her daughter and had a lot of pain with it. What you are discribing is simular to what my sister went through and she had a normal healthy little girl.
