Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

9 Weeks now; had a pap at 6 weeks, results came back abnormal.

I am really nervous, because I have never had an abnormal pap smear before and this is my first pregnancy. They said that the abnormal cells were "mild to moderate" and they're not going to do further tests (colposcopy) until October 25, then I will have to wait a week or 2 to get those results! Has anyone else had an abnormal pap while pregnant? Also, I have my first ultrasound October 20 at 12 weeks, which I am very excited about.

I'm sure they're prob just running extra tests to be safe. The abnormal cells may be caused by a yeast infection or something like that. If they were very worried about it they would do more testing before then. Good luck.

I was in the same boat as you, abnormal pap early in pregnancy and then had a colp. My doctor told me that this isn't uncommon and not to get worried or anxious. After the colp everything was "normal". Good luck!!

I had an abnormal pap the first time i got one, they told me they found cells for cervicle cancer but they werent to worried about it. they said its extrememly rare for someone under 20 to have it and that they might go away after i have the baby. so theyre gonna test again after i have her and see if its still abnormal. i wouldnt worry about it until they give u a diagnosis
