    My only issues I've had is that we've had lots of miscarriages and they put it down to the uterus shape.
    I have read that quite a few people got diagnosed with Bicornuate & it was actually septate.
    That does concern me. And ultrasounds aren't the clearest to an untrained eye hmmm

    I was initially diagnosed as bicornuate and have now been told it is a supseptate. Both by obgyn's

    My exact diagnosis is bicornuate supseptate uterus. Talk about confusing!

    Yes I was told originally that I had a 'double uterus' which is the bicornuate only to find out later on it was the subseptate. Don't think a ultrasound can determine it until you physically have exploratory surgery.

    I had a baby girl in April. I delivered via c-section due to placenta previa. During the c-section my obstetrician noticed that I had a heart shaped uterus. It had not been picked up earlier during any of the scans.

    This did not cause me any complications in TTC or during the pregnancy (my OB said the placenta previa was not due to my heart shaped uterus). My OB did say she was surprised that my DD wasn't breach, because a lot of women with a heart shaped uterus have babies who get stuck in a breach position and are unable to turn. She said I had a higher risk of a breach baby and another c-section next time.

    She also told me that other than a possible breach baby, I shouldn't have any other issues as a result of this next time around.

    Yeah my LO was breech as a result of my heart shape uterus. My obs says there is a good chance subsequent pregnancies will be breech and require c section too
