 I am pregnant, for the fourth time, sadly the first three I lost. The longest I've gone was 12 weeks.

 I am 2 days shy of 12 weeks.

 

 With every pregnancy I've had, there has been a lot of cramping and general discomfort. The doctor told me that for many woman with UD this happens a lot? Not know anyone else with UD it's hard to ask others if they also had a lot of cramping.

 

 I was on bed rest because I had started spotting and babies hert rate was low, but at 10 weeks, baby was the right size and heart rate was perfect so Im no longer on bed rest...

 

 Oddly, I am no longer feeling any cramping and if any, it's quite mild, Im feeling.. pretty good to be honest and Im not sure why? I think most people would be happy to report that they were feeling great in their pregnancy, but I only know feeling very crampy to be normal, and Im not sure if this means the  baby has stopped growing?

 

 I live in a very remote area with no ultrasound in sight for miles, and even if I drove those miles, those towns are also so small that they only have one ultrasound tech they share once a week, or less so getting in to see someone when Im not spotting isn't likely. I have to wait until August to have another ultrasound. (I've tried to demand sooner but that doesn't work up here)

 

 I wonder if anyone else has experienced similar symptoms.. did you have cramping? did it go away? did you end up carrying your baby?

 

 I hope someone can tell me some sort of similar situation that ended on a positive note.

Thank you

Hi Katie,


I am so sorry to hear about your past loss but congratulations on your current pregnancy!


I am currently pregnant and I will be 11 weeks this week. I am pregnant in my right uterus which is a little bigger than my left.  I have had lots of cramping. It comes and goes but I am always feeling something. (only once or twice has it been a little painful but no where near as painful as what my periods were like). Its mainly mild cramping. Sometimes on one side, sometimes on both, it changes in my abdominal area.


I have not had any spotting at all, just the cramps. The baby is growing normal and there is a heartbeat. So far so good.


I have never been pregnant before as I was unable to due to my septum which I had removed in Jan this year. I got pregnant a month later.


I am stressed, everyday I worry and with every cramp I am scared I am loosing the baby. Always running to the bathroom to check. All i can think is that I have had these cramps for 7 weeks and nothing has happened so maybe I will get through.


Like you its hard to find anyone to talk to and the dr keeps telling me its normal but I am not sure it is. I have also read a lot of experiences online of cramping to be very normal and in many cases I have read women who sound like they have such bad cramping it wakes them up at night...and they all say they carried full term.


My mum who does not have uterus didelphys and had a normal pregnancy said she had cramping as well and it went away around the third trimester so maybe your cramping is easing.


I am sure every pregnancy is different - especially ours!


I am so sorry to hear you live in a remote area with no access to ultrasounds. My doctor told me that its important to have the regular scans to confirm all ok which I am sure it will be but just to also ease the mind. Also there is a possibility with a shortered cervix in our cases. He mentioned the one at 12 weeks is important. I have scans every two weeks which puts my mind at ease a little because I honestly would go crazy. 


I am so sorry I cant tell you that I ended on a positive note because just like you I am waiting but I will pray for you and hope for the best and will keep you posted with any good news.


I wish you all the best and a successful pregnancy which I am sure it will be. Take care, rest well and don't worry.


best wishes


Yvonne

Hi ladies,

Just checking in to see how your pregnancies are going - have you continued to carry? I hope.

I am now 31+ weeks with my second baby.

Something that I know relieved my fears during both pregnancies was a fetal doppler to listen to the baby's heartbeat. It always brought me so much comfort and relieved my anxieties. I would recommend you do the same - it is so comforting...

I hope all is well, and if you have any questions - feel free to write me.

God bless!

Nicole

Hi Nicole,


Yes thankfully I am still pregnant and I heard from Katie last week and she still is too. 


I am 16 weeks and feeling great. Still have the cramping but determined to keep thinking its just the growing.


I have thought of buying a doppler but I have read that sometimes the baby can be in a position where it might be hard to hear and I just know if I don't hear a heartbeat once it will drive me insane. I think I just prefer the DR to let me know every too weeks :)


Thank you so much for your post and advice.


So good to hear you are 31 weeks good luck and take care hope you have a great delivery. 


Y x

Hi there,


I just wanted to keep everyone updated on my pregnancy as I know how encouraging it is to hear positive stories on this forum. If you read my earlier posts you will notice that I was told by drs I was in store for not only having trouble conceiving but loads of trouble carrying and plenty of miscarriages. 


I am now 31 weeks and everything is going super well. I am in the 'safe' zone if you like meaning if my baby is born now there is a very high chance of survival.


I will keep you posted as I progress. :)


take care


Yvonne

These posts are so reassuring to me. I have suffered two early miscarriages and been diagnosed with uterus didelphys. I have however been told thatthis does not cause early M/C. Im currently awaiting blood tests results to see if they can find a cause. I just get quite down about it all thinking I have so much going against me. Something causing the early miscarriages and on top of that teh double womb risks. I need to keep reading all of these success stories. Congratulations to all of you xx

hello everyone.


i'm currently 30 weeks pregnant with my first baby. she is in my right uterus. i am planning a home birth, assuming i make it to 37 weeks and she is not breech. i also have two vaginas, but there is no concern about a a vaginal birth.


i did have some mild cramping, during months 3-5. i also had some pink & brown spotting my entire pregnancy, up until about a month ago when it suddently stopped. they think it was probably from my left (non-baby) uterus, but they weren't concerned since my placenta is in the right place and my cervices are 4cm long. apparently spotting is very common for pregnant women, UD or not.


when i found out i had UD at my 20 week ultrasound, there was talk of premature labor because often women with UD have smaller uteri. this didn't make sense to me because uteri are stretchy…they stretch for multiples just fine. as it turned out my right uterus expanded normally and the baby just pushed the left one to the side and made room for herself.


she is normal size and incredibly active. i first felt her movements at week 12, which is apparently uncommon. i'll keep everyone posted : )

it is believed, that 3 months pregnant women start to glow. The hormonal changes are in a full swing and now the woman produces the female hormones in double – it’s hard to hide the sparkling eyes, shiny skin, and the growing bump. http://motherhow.com/3-months-pregnant/
