    I have actually just moved from SA to the ACT. Don't recommend moving 1200 kms pregnant!! So i am booked into the Canberra Hospital. I was limited to my choice of hospital here due to my high risk pregnancy.

    Before i fell pregnant all my insulin tests came back perfectly. If you have problems with your levels now i would suggest following a gd diet even before you fall pregnant, your placenta am hormones play a big roll in insulin levels when pregnant so anything you can do beforehand helps!

    I've got a subseptate uterus which is very similar. My uterus is heart shaped.
    I'm currently in hospital after having a baby girl at 38w+5d via section. We got UTD second month of trying. Because of the septum baby couldn't turn and obs didn't think it was safe for a vaginal breech delivery.
    I asked him about resecting the septum and he said that was only generally a good idea if you were having recurrent miscarriage (if the egg implants on the septum, there isn't enough tissue to hold the pregnancy).
    He said obviously I can get pregnant so it's better to just leave it.
    Any operation has a risk of getting adhesions post op which would make future pregnancies harder.

    Subbing as I have one too & am interested to hear others experiences. We are still ttc & I was wondering what sort of complications I'll be likely to deal with when pregnant..

    How did you all get diagnosed with b.u?
    Was it through ultrasound alone?
    I've been reading up & some people have suggested getting an MRI or laparoscopy to find out exactly what you're dealing with.
    I'm going to ask my dr to look at ultrasound pic again as I want to know exactly how much the 'pointy bit' protrudes down iykwim
    Apparently this can vary a bit between women.
    I've not had any m/cs which I guess is a positive, but on the other hand we've been trying for 7 months with nothing happening.
    So glad I found this old thread to vent/discuss

    My diagnosis was through an us and they took measurements. Mine has a thick inoperable membrane which is almost dividing my uterus in half. Thankfully it looks as though bub is in the larger horn as on my us now you can't even see the other half.

    Mine was initially picked up when I had a laparoscopy to remove endo. My Gyno informed me after the procedure but I didn't give it much thought as I wasn't ready to TTC.

    I went back to her years later to discuss TTC and she recommended an u/s to check if my uterus had a septum.

    I am currently 32 weeks pregnant with a bicornuate uterus, haven't had any issues and doc has never said I'd be likely to. Fundal measurements are currently 3-5 weeks ahead, so no problems with growth restriction it seems! Was diagnosed in an ultrasound after mc last year, and again at my 12 week scan this pregnancy.

    I've got a subseptate uterus which is very similar but my septum comes down 3/4 of the way. Was originally told that if I did get pregnant I would have extremely premature babies via c/s. DD1 came along and had to be induced with her as I was 2 weeks overdue. She was a natural birth.
    My only issues I've had is that we've had lots of miscarriages and they put it down to the uterus shape.
