Hi Stacey

Sorry it has taken me so long to reply.. I ended up giving birth to a healthy baby girl Francesca Paige at 35 weeks..

I was devastated when I was given the news about my uterus and the person performing the ultrasound wasn't very nice and was more concerned that I only had 1 kidney!!!! I was at my healthiest when I was pregnant but I also believe that I had a really rough pregnancy, my ob/gyn ended up taking sick leave when I was about 30 weeks so I had to find a new ob/gyn who I found a bit vague and was like what ever happens happens. Where my first ob/gyn was very caring and I had fortnightly appointments with him, he put my on hormones to try and stop and early birth. I also had gestational diebetes which wasn't fun either, monitoring your sugar when you are pregnant isn't fun because I was craving all the bad stuff :( Also because little Frankie didn't have much room 1 ultrasound showed that she may be born with "club foot". When she was born her feet were turned in but with home physio they are now fine. Also cankles for me yuck ;-)

My water broke on BOXING DAY at 9am and Frankie was born by c-section at 12.02pm. So it all happened very quickly. She was in special care for 14 days as she needed to learn how to suck feed. It was horrible seeing her in a humidicrib with a feeding tube etc but when I look back she could have been a lot worse and born a lot earlier.

I hope everything is going well with you. We are trying for another baby next year and hopefully I can fall again.

Feel free to ask me anything because asking Dr Google is a massive no no and it took me a while to stop doing it!!!

All the best x

Hi Stacey a family is possible. Try and make sure your doctor/gyno knows as much about UD as humanly possible! If you don't feel thay have your best interests at heart say so, follow your gut. Make sure they know the risks, you don't want to be caught of guard. And relax, eaiser said than done but stress does nothing for someone trying to become pregnant or who is pregnant. Have faith in your body and read its signs. Sorry if this comes across as random, I have had a lot of coffee today!

Hey Stacey, the operation to have the septum removed was easy! they just put you under a general aneasthetic and snip the septum out! Afterwards, it stings a little to urinate and there is a little bit of pain, a bit like period pain! But really manageable with panadol. Before I had the septum removed it was always painful when I had intercourse, a few months afterward the operation I felt no pain! I would recommend having the septum removed. I have read several articles about women being able to get pregnant with this disorder. Most women are high risk pregnancies, have to have ceasareans and need to have the baby prematurely...but in other cases women have had natural births. I hope this helps! All the best, I know how daunting it can be...but I just see it that we are a whole lot of woman!
