Default Lymphangioma and pregnancy

Hey Everyone,

Let me just say I'm not pregnant yet, but my fiance and I have discussed having children in the next year or two. Now I'm wondering, since I have lymphangiomas on my abdomen (which keep slowly spreading across my abdomen from right to left, also up and down) will I have issues with pregnancy? Has anyone had lymphangiomas in their abdomen area and experienced issues?

I just worry that with body changes (hormones and tummy growing) it may cause the lymphangiomas to get worse? Or if I need a C-section, will I have issues/risks of infection and it spreading through the lymphatic system?

I'm going to talk to my doctor when the time gets nearer, but I'm just wondering if anyone out there has had experience with this?
