At my ultrasound my tech asked if I knew I had a tilted uterus. I did not, lol. I have looked up stuff on the internet but I was wondering if any of you ladies have one and what, if anything, it means with pregnancy?

I do! It hasn't affected anything for me. First pregnancy was normal, second was twins and normal and both were normal deliveries.

My step mother had that. She said it made it difficult for her to conceive. But that doesn't seem to have effected you that way!

I read somewhere that about 20% of women have a tilted/inverted uterus. It's pretty common, then. And I can't find anything that says it affects pregnancy in any way.

I did not have one before I gave birth but now I do. My OB could barely find my uterus at my 5.5 wk u/s it was so tipped back. But then at 7.5 wk u/s it was much easier and she said it had untipped quite a bit. They get into place as the baby grows.

She says it's like green eyes, unusual but not that meaningful from a medical perspective.

I have this too! During my u/s the tech said it was tilted back, and that it's not anything to be worried about. This is my first pregnancy so I have no idea if it has any impact on it or not...from what I've heard though it doesn't.

I have one. It straightens out as the baby grows. Never had a problem with it. Just one of those thi.gs. My sister has one too. Apparantly, it's genetic.

I have one too. The only affect it has on me during pregnancy is when it comes to using the doppler to find the heartbeat. Apparently my uterus doesn't come back forward until after the 14-16 week mark. After that, they can use the doppler just fine to locate the heartbeat. My midwife said that some women with a tilted uterus experience PMS cramping in their lower back instead of cramping in the front. I just don't get cramps when I have AF. It's never been a problem with TTC as all of my children were conceived on the first try. I've also had normal vaginal deliveries.

i have one too! found out during my first prenatal for my first pregnancy. it made it a little harder to manually tell how far along i was so they ended up doing an u/s but it doesn't really effect the pregnancy itself. she asked if i had back pain a lot during my periods and i said yes and she said well thats why! lol. it made sense! and you might show a little later in pregnancy too since it might take a little while to adjust forward. i started showing around 18 weeks w/ my 1st but everyone is different :-)

I'm not sure what they call mine but I have a very sharp curve in mine. It made it difficult to do the 2nd IVF transfer but they both stuck so it didn't seem to hurt them. During the first IVF it was less of a curve and the transfer was easy and the baby didn't stick. So I don't really think it has much of an impact.
