HERNIA during pregnancy


Q: Hello, IVE been through three pregnancies s, and this is my third one. AT this moment it is to be believed I have umbilical hernia. I hadnt noticed, it at all before my pregnancy because It did not bother me. WELL I am 25 WEEKS pregnant and over the past 6weeks It has been becoming more painful and uncomfortable. YET I seen my ob he says nothing can be done. I mean my stomach feels like it is, going to explode. IT is much bigger, than it should b and all this occurs above my belly button. I just feel like I dont want to eat or drink because there isnt any room. I cant see how I can make it through the pregnancy carrying on like this. I have limited mobility I, cant even be a mother, to my teo beautiful little boys. THIS is so hard for me. ANY, suggestions on options. What could possibly be done. THEY sat it eill come back if anything is done now but im to the point I feel as if nothing is done will it explode, excuse me, I dont know medical terms, but Im scared if I dont get, something done im not making it, full term ir too much, longer, st, that matter. PLEASE help me with suggestions on what I shoukd do or what I, coukd do. I really need some closure on this, it is a major concern for me .
