    Hi

    Has anyone had a prolapse in pregnancy? I am 15+3 & feel it has become worse last few weeks (have a docs appointment booked) did you do pelvic floor exercises in pregnancy? It's worse when I am on my feet like protruding from vagina. I'm not in any pain. My waters wouldnt break early would they? Hope baby is ok.

    Could anyone give me any tips or advice until docs appointment please. Midwife didn't say anything just to advise to see a doc.

    Many thanks in advance

    Gilly x

    I cant say iv ever had one. But i know people who have had one after pregnancy. Pelvic floor exercises are very important. Friends have also told me theyve lay with their legs up for a certain amount of time and thats kept things in for a bit.
    Has it only just came during pregnancy? X

    Is your prolapse from a previous child Gill or has it come on during pregnancy? I didn't suffer one myself but have a friend who did after her first and went on to have a healthy, full term second pregnancy.. Pelvic floor exercises are incredibly important though for everybody as pregnancy and childbirth take their toll! Hope you get the answers you need at your docs appointment x

    Hi girls thanks for your replies. I have a secondary prolapse of the uterus brought on by a forceps & episotomy last time plus the weight of baby this time plus preg hormones has mad me discover it. Seen Dr at hospital who has advised pelvic floor exercises and no heavy lifting at all. He said I could have a normal delivery & as the baby rises it should take baby with it. May experience problems at end as baby engages but not sure. I'm hoping things go ok in delivery x
