Having a double uterus is pretty rare, as far as I know I don't know anyone else that has one, it isn't the kind of thing that you hear about everyday. However last week I was talking to someone at a toddler group and she was telling me about her sister who is currently pregnant with her first child, and how they are worried and thought it would never happen. Then she went on to say the reason they were worried was because her sister has 'two of everything'!! At which point my ears prick.

Obviously I don't know all the ins and outs and the exact nature of her uterine anomally, but she was saying the doctors have told her sister to hope for 28weeks at least. It was such a reasurrance to her to know that it isn't always that way. Yes there is a high chance of premature birth, but it was nice to be able to reassure her that it isn't always the case and I have had 2 healthy full term babies. I think just to have someone else that understands the worry of running out of space and premature birth etc. I know when I was pregnant with N every week was a bonus and a little sigh of relief.

I've passed on my email address, I don't know if I'll hear anything, but it is sometimes just comforting to know you aren't the only one.

When I was pregnant with my first (Dustin) I went in for my first ultrasound to figure out how far along I was, and they told me that I have a bicornuate uterus. And it is heart shaped, I have like "two sections separated by a wall" I was lucky and it didn't effect my pregnancy though.

I had never heard about that stuff until I watched The Tyra Show one week before finding out, and I thought is was such a coincidence.

I hope everything turns out ok.

That is how I found you, searching for bicornuate blogs.
