OK Wednesday I woke up with pain in my belly button. I went to the Dr. and he told me I might have a hernia and said to take a warm bath for pain and if it got worse call them. 2 hours later I was in so much pain I was crying just walking slowly. I called the Dr. and was told to Labor and Delivery. Get to L&D and they start checking the baby to make sure he is ok and when the Dr. comes in she says it is definitely a hernia and pushes it back in. Tells me it is an Umbilical hernia and shows me how to push it back in myself. The next morning my Dr calls and tells me that he wants me to see a surgeon in case I have to have an emergency operation if the hernia gets stuck and mentions that they will repair the hernia during childbirth, meaning a C section. I was planning on having a spontaneous natural birth so I am understandably upset. Everything I have read on Umbilical hernia's says that you can have a normal vaginal delivery and that it actually ma be better to repair the hernia after the baby is born and my uterus has gone back down. Please somebody that has had this let me know their experience and if they where able to deliver vaginally or how their repair of the hernia during a c section went. BTW I will be 30 weeks pregnant tomorrow. Thank you in advance I really need some help.
