    Just had a huge surgery and one of the only ones done in most of Australia where they made my uteri into one uterus, I still have two cervixs but I'll be leaving them along becuase once you mess with a cervix there is no turning back

    Wow. Its so bizarre how the human body works.
    My left tube doesnt pick up my eggs from my right ovary as its up way to high but when we did ivf they were able to take eggs from both ovaries. So we were lucky.

I am booked in with the gyno first thing Monday morning to discuss further. Ever since I had the scan I've been so scared that I may never be able to achieve a successful pregnancy - I had a MC earlier this year and I've had a feeling that something was not quite right as whenever I've had scans they've made comments on how my uterus is a strange shape. It all makes sense now. I am so pleased to hear that you have both been able to carry full term, honestly I have been so worried and your stories have given me hope! Thank you thank you
    Hi annee,

    It is not a very common condition. It also appears there's mixed success, but that is true even with women without a UU. Many of us do have trouble free pregnancies, so there is definitely hope!

    There is a group called "UU sisterhood" on yahoo groups that has interesting discussions. I have even heard of someone successfully having twins.

    I had to have a scan to check my kidneys, but I have both, so no probs there. Apparently some women with UU also only have one kidney.

    All the best with your TTC journey.

    thanks Falkor, and Sethysmum, I cannot tell you how good it feels to have met people with this too, it just seems so uncommon, I'll definitely check out the UU sisterhood group. I think I have both kidneys so at least that is a blessing. I'm wondering if anyone is based in Sydney? Because of it being so rare I would prefer to see a gyno that has some experience with it, if there was a specialist in the Sydney that anyone could recommend I would really appreciate it. I think I'm still a bit in shock to be honest....

    Hi Ladies!!
    I know this thread is almost 2 years old but worth a shot posting there is not a lot of info out there for us ladies!!

    I have a unicornuate Uterus and am currently 16 weeks pregnant. I have a scan this weekend to make sure my cervix hasn't shortened.

    Just wondering what to expect for the rest of the pregnancy? How often did you see you OB/have a scan? Were you put in bed rest, etc??
    I'm having a tough time 'enjoying' the pregnancy as I find myself worrying about preterm labour, miscarriage, etc.

    Hi @Barca07 . Congratulations on your pregnancy. I saw my private OB every 4 weeks up until 30 weeks and then every 2 weeks until I had my ds at 37 weeks. He scanned me everytime he saw me and I was put on progesterone pessisaries from 24 weeks to help prevent premature labour. I went on mat leave at 32 weeks and was not allowed to do anything strenuous eg. vacuuming and by 33 weeks I was not allowed to leave the house and had to basically only sit on the couch or lay in bed in case I went into labour. Not that I showed any signs of going early my doc was just being very cautious. By 37 weeks I developed pre eclampsia so ds was delivered by c-section the following day which was only 1 week of from my scheduled c-section. My ds was 5 pounds 14 ounces. Tiny but perfectly heaIthy. I found my pregnancy really hard and I was worried and anxious the entire time as not only was I worring about my bub coming early but my little girl was stillborn 10 years prior and they could never tell me why so I was worried it was going to happen again.
    I know its hard not to worry but I have a very healthy 2yr old boy so there are many success stories. Feel free to PM me if you need anymore info or just want to chat.
    Fingers crossed you have a problem free pregnancy.

    Congratulations on your pregnancy!

    I didn't have much extra monitoring during my 2nd pregnancy, other than a growth scan @ 35 weeks. That said, I made it to my 39 week CS day the first time round, so they weren't concerned about cervix issues or risk of pre term labour.

    I now have my 2nd precious bundle in my arms - a little girl born 1/9/15. She was 7 lb 1oz - excellent size for a UU (her older brother was 6 lb1 Oz). I opted for a repeat CS & all went well.
