    Default Bicornuate uterus

    Does anyone else have one?

    When I was preg with DS the docs said it was just a heart shaped uterus and nothing else. Nothing was said when I was preg with dd about it. This time they are making a big fuss saying its a big one and that I'm lucky to have kids, and that I need extra monitoring this pregnancy (I am already high risk)

    How did you find out you hve one and how has it affected your life? Xxxxx

    Default Bicornuate uterus

    I don't have one but a friend does.

    She has had 3 miscarriages as a result and a preterm labour, thankfully her DS is fine.
    She is currently a few days gestation behind me (37 weeks) and has been monitored consistently throughout the pregnancy and at this stage has weekly scans.
    They are classing her as high risk but she has made it to term.

    I'm not really sure about it, she's only told me the basics.
    Fingers crossed you don't have too many issues.

    I'm rejuvenating this thread as I've found out today I have a Bicornuate Uterus (currently TTC) and would love to chat to anyone else with this. Those who are ttc & those who've had babies

    Im currently preg with my first baby and i have a bicornuate uterus. Mine was diagnosed when we were ttc so knew i would be a high risk pregnancy from the start.

    They are aiming for me to go to 34 weeks but have said it will be closer to 30 weeks.

    Happy to answer any questions you may have.

    Huge hugs any form of diagnosis with ttc is hard

    Thanks for your response.
    What led to your diagnosis? Did you have any issues ttc? My Dr said it shouldn't cause any issues, but I'm not so sure. Hence my reaching out to others in same position.
    How far along are you in your pregnancy (congrats btw!) ?
    And what kind of monitoring are you having?
    Are you having a c-section?
    Sorry for all the questions, I just feel like I have so much to get my head around ATM

    I have this condition. I also had a septum dividing my uterus in two, so I had it removed prior to TTC.

    I've had one pregnancy and have one child. He was delivered prematurely but not for reasons related to my b.u.

    Happy to answer any specific questions

    We knew i had pcos before we started ttc with a fs. It was part of the routine testing that it was found.

    Im currently 20 weeks pregnant. We had two miscarriages in the two years we were ttc. One thing we were told is that it can increase the risk of miscarriage but they think my mcs were due to the pcos.

    We are aiming for as natural a birth as possible, there is no reason to think i will have a cs as yet.

    My pregnancy is a little different as i have been diagnosed with gd and require insulin. They are monitoring with more frequent us in the high risk unit to monitor bubs size and my cervix to prevent premature labor as much as possible.

    Hi Degrassi. Was it the septum you had removed?
    Did you fall pregnant ok after that, even with the b.u?

    I hope you get the birth you want Munchkin!
    What hospital are you booked in with? I see you're in SA, me too
    When my time comes I hope I can avoid a c-section but will do what's best I guess.
    I had some bloods too & it's shown I'm also insulin resistant, but Dr wants to repeat in about 6 weeks to get a better idea if its an issue.

    That's right, it was the septum that was removed. I wanted to give myself the best chance of having a successful pregnancy & my Gyno agreed that it was best to have it taken out.

    I fell pregnant within the first month of trying so the b.u didn't hold me back in that respect.
