I was born with small intestines – now held together with pins, I’m pregnant, will pins hold?

I’m 20 years old I was born with my small intestines not together and I had to have surgery at birth and I have a pin holding my intestines together. With me being pregnant is that going to affect the pin? I’m 12 week and I haven’t had pain in the area where the pin is. I just wanna know can I still have a healthy pregnancy?

hi
I dont think you should have any problem with your pregnancy with the pins inside. The pins are in abdomen,while the baby lies in the uterus. There will be no direct contact between the two and the pregnancy should go away smoothly.
Thanks.

Hi and welcome to question doctors .com
You should stay calm and relaxed it has been a very long time since you had this surgery and pin inside ..your pregnancy will go well without impact over this…
Unless you have any abnormal symptoms and signs of severe pain..high fever or severe constipation that does not go for days…

HI
ITS ABSOLUTELY SAFE DEAR.DONT WORRY. YOU MAY EXPERIENCE SOME PAIN IN LATER STAGES OF PREGNANCY WHEN THE SIZE OF BABY IS LARGE AND IT MAY COMPRESS ON THE PINS. BUT IT WONT AFFECT YOUR PREGNANCY AT ALL. GET REGULAR ABDOMINAL SCANS DONE

hello there
pins will definitely hold till the last day of pregnancy. the reason is that the increasing baby size will cause only mechanical pressure on your intestines. It wont stretch the intestines apart.
get a usg of abdomen now to see the status of the pins
