    6 cm hemangioma- and hoping to get pregnant

    Out of lots of early morning googling I found this site. I'm hoping to find some answers or at least some friendly ears. I am 35 years old and my husband and I were going to start trying to conceive in December.

    Around the 4th of July I began having some abdominal and shoulder pain. Subsequent testing showed a 6cmx5cm hemangioma in the right lobe of my liver (which may or may not be the cause of my pain). The testing also showed a 1 cm hemangioma in my left lobe. My PCP said that I shouldn't worry about the hemangiomas unless I wanted to have kids (ummm yea I do), in which case I need to speak with specialists because estrogen is basically steroids for hemangiomas.

    Now of course I'm freaking out and it will be months before I can get a referral to an actual liver disease specialist (stupid HMOs). Anyone successfully had a baby without adverse hemangioma consequences (either with the pregnancy itself or with growth of the hemangioma)?

    Also, anyone in Colorado and have doctor recommendations?
