I am writing because I am feeling kind of nervous. I have a bicornuate uterus and always heard all kind of horrifying stories about getting pregnant and complications: miscarriages, prem babies and mandatory c-section since the baby will be likely to be breech. The doctor who diagnosed me ages ago even told me I couldn't have babies - wish I had him in front of me to slap him on his face! -
Well, defying all odds I have passed 37 weeks, the baby managed to turn and they told me I can have a natural birth and they have booked me for induction because the baby is too big and it has to come out a bit earlier. I am a bit nervous about it because I was always convinced that it will be a prem baby and with a c-section. I am glad the baby is now full term, now my only worry is that in my head I am not prepared for a natural birth, I am worried if the weird shape of my uterus could cause complications, I also didn't take any induction course, just antenatal classes. Has anybody been in this situation and offer some advice?

Biggest complication is that due to the shape the uterus may not contact effectively and you will need syntocinon to keep lower going. And a higher risk of PPH.

I also carried to full term, but had a c sec at 38 w 5 days due to breech. I am sure you'll be fine, trust your body, and if things aren't going as well as you'd like the drs and nurses will be on hand to support you. Good luck with the next couple of weeks.

My cousin has a bicornuate uterus and delivered her DD naturally at 38+4 weeks with no syntocin required. They just monitired her afterwards in case of PPH, but other than that, she said it was a straightforward birth.
