So yesterday I had an OB appointment. When I went to the bathroom to leave my urine sample, I noticed blood tinged mucous when I wiped. In addition, I wasn't feeling great, so I got a little worried and mentioned it to my OB during the appointment. He said that everything looked good, pregnancy-wise - my BP is awesome, I'm not having protein issues, no GD issues, no contractions, and no history of premature labor, but that it might be a good idea to check my cervix anyway. So he did. What he found was a nicely closed, thick cervix, and a nabothian cyst on my cervix that is about the size of a ping pong ball! That's huge! It's most likely that, coupled with the fact that DH and I had BD'd the previous night, that caused the blood tinge in my mucous. He said that he's not worried about it being cancerous, but it is large and there is a possibility that we may want to drain it... but he thinks there is a possibility that if we do that, it may just fill back up again... which scares me as far as my delivery goes...
He said that if you imagine the cyst compared to the baby's head, size-wise, that you'd think baby's head should win, so there may be no issues at all. But what worries me is that it may affect dilation, and cause my labor to not progress which would, of course, probably lead to interventions and a possible c-section. He mentioned that we can talk about it more at my next appointment with him (in 4 weeks - my next appt in 2 weeks is with a NP) and discuss the possibilities.
Have any of you dealt with this before? Should I press for him to drain it before I hit 37 weeks so that it is smaller when I go into labor? I'm pretty sure that once I'm in labor there is no chance they will want to touch it... nor will I want them to touch it!
I'm really discouraged already that this may impede my natural birth... I need some advice.
