The lack of information

I always thought the internet was a mine of information, which it is, it's great to be able to just type into a search engine whatever it is you want to find out about and up pops lots of information. However that isn't always the case. A search for maternity gothwear for one brings you next to no useful results. So what about when that supposed mine of information turns out to be me???!!

I had noticed a few of you had found your way here by typing bicornuate bicollis into google, so I thought I'd have a look myself. 5th, not 5th page, but 5th result that is where I found myself! How can it be that this one very little blog can be one of the top results in a world of 6 and a half billion people! Is there really so little information out there about this? Yes there is loads of information out there about bicornuate uterii, but that doesn't really quite cover the half of it for some of us. A bicornuate uterus can have any degree of indentation, from slight to severe, it really doesn't cover the whole bicollis part of it of having 2 cervixes. I just think it is shocking that I'm so high up this list!! For those of you who do find your way here though I hope you find some information from my ramblings and also check out the link to the blog list I have, erm which seems to have disappeared somewhere, I'll make sure that goes back up. It is stirrup queen anyway and she has a huge lists of blogs covering allsorts of pregnancy, parenting, gynae, adoption, ivf type stuff, including a list of blogs from people with uterine anomalies.

Anyway as I draw to the end of another waffle without much direction I shall finish with these 2 things I found on my web search of the day. Firstly this.If you are a bit squeamish you may not want to look, but I found the pictures really interesting. I did note though that they say t

To our knowledge, such uterine anomaly has only been sporadically reported as revealed by our survey on bicornis bicollis uterus in the literature for the last over nine decades
Hmm, I think I may change my facebook status to 'is a sporadic anomaly'
Secondly was a comment here saying that actually bicornuate bicollis actualy has a much better pregnancy success rate then just a standard bicornuate. So there is some good news for you bicollis people out there!
