First endoscopy (no hernia), today's (yes hernia)

I just came back from my endoscopy. The Dr. said that he found no food in my gut (Thank God), he found some water, and he found a small hiatus hernia. This last part bothers me. I had an endoscopy in January, and there was never a mention made of a hiatus/hiatial hernia. Could it be that it's so small that the first doctor bothered not to mention it. Or can it be that I've developed it since then? How could I have developed it since then? How can I keep it from getting bigger/wider/worse? I want to start working out again eventually, and I don't want to do any exercises (abs and chest) that are going to make the area worse? Any advice?
