I'm sorry you and your lo have this worry. With a hernia, there's the possibility it could become strangulated. Meaning the blood supply becomes compromised. But it might not be because of this concern. As your GP has all the details, and has seen lo. They could be being cautious, or would just prefer a second opinion from the specialists. At the end of the day everything will probably be fine, but it's best to be seen. Sooner rather than later just means it can all be sorted out quicker. If lo needs an operation, it's scary, but it's a very common procedure, and recovery is usually quick. HTH. xx

My LO was born with an umbilical hernia. I never remember the HV's or doctors being that worried about it tbh. I was told most went away quite often of their own accord by around 6 months old or so, and this was exactly what happened fortunately! How old is your LO?
That said DD does still have a small hernia there, and I know they operate around the age of 5 or 6 generally if it's still too large. Guessing DD's will be followed up if necessary in time?

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
