Polyp/uterine: A uterine polyp is a growth from the lining of the uterus, and is not a threat to a pregnancy in any way, will not "tear or burst", nor cause an amniotic fluid embolism. Polyps can cause some bleeding when they twist and cut off their blood supply, but are not a cause for concern in pregnancy.
