I AM RESPONDING TO DANA AND KIM RE: HERNIA & PREGNANCY, I HAD A HERNIA OPERATION WHEN I WAS 15,THAT WAS 15 YRS.AGO.I RARELY HAVE HAD ANY DISCOMFORT THERE SINCE ECEPT,WHEN I HAVE ALOT OF GAS.OR BAD CRAMPS DURING MY PERIOD.BUT NOW I AM 33 WKS PREGNANT AND IT BOTHERS ME CONSTANSTLY.SOMETIMES I SUDDENLY GAT A SHARP ALMOST NUMBING PAIN THERE(IN MY LOWER LFT ABDOMIN) .SOMETIMES WHEN I'M DOING NOTHING AT ALL ,ALMOST AS IF THE BABY IS KICKING ME THERE,IT SOMETIMES MAKES ME JOLT FOWARD FROM THE PAIN IT'S SO SHARP!I HAVE DISCUSSED THIS W/MY DOCTOR AS WELL, AND HE DISCARDS IT AS IF IT IS NOTHING AND TELLS ME I CAN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT UNTIL AFTER THE BABY IS BORN.BUT AS NOT EVEN DISCUSSED DELIVERY W/ME ,I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO GO NATURAL BUT I ALSO HAVE THE FEAR OF THE PAIN, AND AM GLAD TO KNOW THAT I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE (AS MY DOCTOR MAKES ME FEEL) ARE THERE ANY OTHER COMMENTS OUT THERE ON THIS MATTER ?I SURE CAN'T FIND ANY , BUT NOW I'M SURE THERE ARE MORE!: : : I have diagnosed with a hernia in my lower abdomen. It is the size of a golfball, a little smaller, and HARD as a ROCK. It hurts a little here and there when I sneeze or cough too hard.
: : : I am also 8 weeks pregnant (2nd one) and I am afraid I will not be able to have natural delivery. (My previous pregnancy was a C-Section, due to preeclampsia). I would love to try natural delivery, even if I find out later that I can't and have to do a C-Section.
: : : Does anyone know anything about having a hernia, or has anyone had a hernia during their pregnancy and been able to go through labor and contractions, and deliver???
: : : Info would be helpful, cause my Dr. doesn't really have any advice for me.

: : I would find another doctor that can give you more medical advice on the condition.

: I think I worded it wrong, my doctor basically agreed with me that I should schedule my C, but I recently changed my mind, and wanted to do a natural.
: We really havent spoken much on it, also because i have only had ONE dr appt, I am only 8 weeks. My next is in 3 weeks.
