Carla Thebubblelush on youtube has a bicornuate uterus.  She has had two healthy pregnancies so far.  Not sure if I remember seeing anyone on the Bee with it.

I have a bicornate uterus. Two healthy pregnancies and two teenage dauGhters to show for it!  No difficulties conceiving either. They discovered it during my second pregnancy during ultrasound. Doctor didn’t express any concerns. I also had two easy labours, start to finish 4 hours and 2 hours 🙂

My cousin has that. Her DD was born at 32 weeks and spent 17 days in the NICU. Despite the scary beginning, she is now a happy, healthy, smart 10 year old 🙂

My sister has this. We were so worried about it at first because of her first miscarriage (it was believed to be the cause). We were told that she would go into labor early…etc. She was a week “overdue” and has the most beautiful happy healthy baby girl! 

 

I don’t think it’s as uncommon as people think! Good luck!

Just saw this thread! I have one too, which I honestly believe contributed to my first pregnancy ending in miscarriage and my second implanting in the muscle of my right “horn” as opposed to my uterine cavity. From what I’ve read, women with bicornuate uteri often have shortened cervixes (which can result in preterm labor”, and babies are often in a breech presentation. Do any of the pps that are bicornuate mamas want to share their birth stories?

My mum had this- no problems conceiving three times, three healthy pregnancies to term and three normal deliveries. All three times though she had a D&c post delivery for retained products. Good luck sweetie- try not to stress too much x

A very dear friend of mine has this condition. I wish I could say she had a happy ending, but she didn’t.

Best wishes to you and your family.

A close friend of mine has this, along with endometriosis. It took them about 2 years to conceive but they had a perfect little boy last spring. She said due to the bicornuate uterus, there’s a risk for earlier deliver and she did end up delivering 4 weeks early. She was monitored closely through the entire pregnancy, and while she did have her stressful moments, she has the most beautiful little guy to show for it. Best of luck!  🙂

Blech, I have an ultrasound at the end of the month to check for this. I’m not pregnant, but apparently people with kidney abnormalities (which I have in a mild form) can be linked to uterine abnormalities also. Did any of your doctors ever comment on your uterus being different or anything during a yearly exam?

If I have a bicornuate uterus, it’s very VERY mild on the outside.  No one can for SURE rule it out though.  lol  I definitely at least have an arcuate uterus though, and until last year, I also had a septum on top of that arcuate uterus.  For me the trouble has lain with the septum.  I’ve lost 6 pregnancies because of it.  I’m in my 7th pregnancy and for the first time, things are going strong!  I’ve also been warned about pre-term labor/birth, the potential for needing a c-section if the baby can’t turn properly, etc.  Because of the 2 surgeries that I’ve had on my uterus to get rid of the septum, they will be doing a scan at 17 weeks to measure the length of my cervix to make sure we aren’t dealing with a weak or incompetent cervix, and then at 28 weeks, we’ll start doing weekly growth scans to make sure the baby is getting enough room to grow.  🙂
