Tiffany here. So, I went to the hospital yesterday. I found out that I have a heart shaped uturus. I have no ide what that is or what it can do. I'm so scared. This is my first pergnancy. My babys just fine for now. I'm 7 1/2 weeks right now. My baby is in my left uturus and in my right would be an empty sack with blood or something in it. I'm waiting for a call to see if I had twins and if one didn't make it. I'm so scared. I don't want to lose my baby. I've been wanting this for so long. I don't know what to do or how to handle it. Can someone please help me?

my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for 8 yrs. we've had 5 miscarriages, all by 6wks. the dnc I had last week revealed to the doctor that I may have a heart shaped uterus as he took his time and "felt" his way around . it seems the baby was on the left side which is the smaller side. We have been tested for everything even genetic testing (blood test). i know it might sound strange, but, know at least we have a chance to address a reason for these miscarraiges, my doctor also said depending on how "deep" the cleft is, he may be able to just - kind of sc___pe- it to smooth it out, if it's a little deeper, he may be able to "cut" it through surgery. but this gives me hope because it tells me that if i just have to keep trying eventually my baby will settle on the "right" side! a wonderful husband, supportive job/bosses and faith in God gets me through it.

I found out I had a heart shaped uterus when I was pregnant with my third child. They told me it's something that I was born with. I asked them why they never saw it with the first 2 pregnancies and they didn't know. Well I had some bleeding in my first trimester with the 3rd pregnancy and every time they did an ultrasound and everything was fine. I went in for my normal 16 week exam and the couldn't hear the heartbeat, which wasn't out of the ordinary because 4 weeks earlier the same thing happened and they did the ultrasound and everything was fine. Well this time they did the ultrasound and the baby had died. So I had to give birth at 16 weeks to a dead baby and then 3 weeks later had to have a d and c because I had afterbirth still in me due to having a retained placenta after delivering. Well then I got pregnant again 6 months later. At 6 weeks approx. they did my first ultrasound and didn't see a heart beat yet so they wanted to see me back in another week. They told me not to worry, but I did anyways. Well a week later they didn't see anything. The baby never formed. So I just had to have another d and c a week ago. I actually have to go back to the dr's tomorrow because I am still cramping a week after having my d and c and the dr said that's not normal. When I go in I'm going to be asking alot of questions due to 2 miscarriages in 8 months and what chance it is from having a heart shaped uterus. I wouldn't let what I'm telling you discourage you because my first 2 pregnancies were normal pregnancies and had 2 healthy boys.

Hi everybody!! I am so excited to find a forum that's still active. sympathize with each and every one of you who've experienced a m/c. I have two times, and my heart broke every single time! There really aren't words to describe how it feels....it just hurts. I keep whispering to myself, BE STRONG, BE BRAVE, BE PATIENT, but even firm believers sometimes need rea__surance, and you all rea__sure me that it will be ok and I will have my beautiful baby one day. I am now seeing a fertility specialist and am not infertile, i can conceive, just m/c around 6-7 weeks. Found out i am positive for antiphospholipid antibody and will need to be on baby ASA for life and Heparin injections when I get pregnant again. Had and histosalpinogram (sp) today and the Dr says my uterus is heart shaped. He immediately said, its a good thing because it can be fixed..but it feels like another barrier to prevent me from having a baby. However after much thought (and reading your beautiful entries, I WILL get pregnant, take my injections and baby aspirin and everything will be okay I hope. Find a doctor you feel good about and confident with, and don;t give up. Please keep this post going, I need it so much.

im only 17 and i just recently found out i was pregnant. im only 6 weeks and 3 days. ive been in and out of the doc the last 3 days now because i have been cramping and bleeding and i was afraid i was having a miscarriage. they said all of that looked ok and it was normal to bleed at first for some women but they did and ultra sound and said i had a heart shaped uterus. my doc told me i would more than likely have to have a c section and that i might have a premature baby. i have been very very nervous. this website has given me a lot of comfort. i hope all goes well, for me, and for all of you other women!

Hello, I too have a heart shaped uterus. I underwent surgery about 7 years ago where they remove the septum. I have a five year old daughter and currently 32 weeks pregnant. Its been a long journey for me...Find a doctor who knows more about your situation...

I found out after baby #3 that I too have a heart-shaped uterus. After my first v____al birth, I lost a lot of blood but my doctor was able to repair everything with minimal damage. After the 2nd vag birth, I had a D&C 5 weeks postpartum because some placenta was left behind. After 3rd vag birth (all natural!) the placenta would not detach because it was attached where there was scar tissue from previous. I don't want to scare anyone but my midwife called in the doctor and he basically sc___ped me out from the inside and I came very close to having a hysterectomy after hemorrhaging, having another D&C, and losing 4 liters of blood. I had a blood transfusion and another D&C eight weeks later. The doc couldn't tell if there was still placental fragment left behind because there is scar tissue so it was hard to tell by feel if there was placenta or just scarring. I guess the doc said this will happen every time. He said once the placenta attaches on the septum, it will attach there every time which elevates risk of hysterectomy and death. I really want to have another child at some point but I am going to see what my options are...maybe c-section? All I know is I don't want to bleed to death and leave my hubby alone with the kids. It was a scary experience that I had never heard of prior to it. So I suppose it is good to know in advance if you have this condition to avoid unnecessary complications. Definitely want to have a doc who has delt with this before!

Hi, I too have a bicoruate uterus. i have a 4 year old son. He was born with 7 lb and 4oz. I am now pregnant but I have some problem. The last time I saw my periiod was in November. December was fine and now I am bledding with discharge of clots. I went to the emergency as it was on week-end and the doctor told me that there is a 75% chance that this one will be miscarried. My husband suggested that i took a pregnancy test and last night I did to see if I am still pregnant after bleeding for two days with clots and I still am. Can anyone help me with this? the only thing I am doing now is pray. i went to see my doctor and she told me to continue taking the prenatal vitamins and eat well. Lots of spinach for the iron that I am losing, and stop having s_x until the first trimester is done. I hope this will help anyone with the same conditon as mine. I think that by the end of this week I will took another pregnancy test and see if I am still pregnant. God bless you all
