    Question Retroverted/tilted uterus in pregnancy!

    Hello ladies,

    I'm 15w2d and I was wondering when i would start having a bump considering I have a retroverted uterus.
    I am quite slim so I thought I would show quite early as there is nowhere for me to "hide" any of it, but so far there isn't much to see, apart from when I'm bloated, usually in the evenings. I'm just wondering if it has anything to do with the fact that my uterus is still tilted backwards.

    Also, anyone know when it's supposed to shift forward? I keep reading it should happen between 10-14 weeks, but at my 12w scan it was still tilted, and I believe it still is.

    And last but not least, can it also make feeling movements more difficult? or delay feeling the first flutters?

    Any information on retroverted/tilted uterus in pregnancy is welcome.

    Thanks in advance for your help ladies!

    I also have a retroverted uterus. As far as I know it tilts forward somewhere between the first and second trimester. I'm sure yours will soon. I doubt it will have any impact on when you show or the movements you feel I felt my first bub around 19weeks and my second around 16weeks, and definitely showed quicker second time round.

    i was almost 6 months pregnant with my first and people started going around saying i wasn't pregnant and that it was a lie i'm also quite slim... around 50kgs.

    with DS2 i had a retroverted uterus at my dating scan so they had to do an internal U/S as they couldn't see bubba at all from outside, didn't really pay any attention to when it shifted, sorry. but don't worry about not showing, there is alot more room inside your stomache to use before that happens, from what my dr told me with DS1 slim/toned ppl are actually less likely to show as your stomache isn't full of fat cells and everything shifts to make room easier and better.

    Me too. Week 16 was the 'change' week for me when I went from being just slightly rounded to definite bump.

    I can also feel bub squirming away now, so I think that should kick in once your tilt happens.

    I'm currently almost 32 weeks pregnant and people still find it hard to believe I'm pregnant at times. I had to have an u/s on my cervix last week and they ended up having to do an internal because it's still really tilted back. My other 2 pregnancies I've 'popped forward' around the 20-25 week mark.

    Thank you ladies.
    You all really have different stories, so I guess I won't hold my breath! It will happen when it happens...
    But I really appreciate you all sharing your experiences. Unfortunately I'm addicted to Dr Google and that only gives you one view, and when you realise you don't fall into that category, you (I.e Me!) start to become paranoid that something's wrong.
    So thank you for putting my mind at ease.

    I have a retro uterus too and didn't show properly until 27 weeks although I was also super-fit and running 10kms a day so had abs of steel... ah those were the days!

    I felt flutters at 16 weeks.
