Wow this is very complicated. Thanks for your reply.
I did a bit of reading on it.
I need to ask more questions at my next scan as my gestational sac seems to be in the middle of the screen, so suggests not in a 'horn'.

My son was transverse when pregnant also so not in a 'horn' then.
Maybe mine is only slight.
Will keep researching and will check back in when I know outcomes (:

the breech position is actually pretty common with bu as usually the baby just passes half the body at the other side and lies transverse. ..but anyway. .I ll be very interested to hear if you ever find out ��

Hi ladies, hoping for some support here after just finding out I have a bicornuate uterus at a scan yesterday. It was never noticed with my ds and I carried him to term 39+6.

Also struggling with hormonal imbalances so ttc #2 has been COMPLETELY different than my ds!

Anyway just saying hi!

fxmummy hi! !sorry to hear you re struggling with ttc #2 but hopefully it's something "fixable" and you can soon share happy news!! Are you sure it's something hormonal?? also how did they diagnose you with bu? it's amazing you carried your son to 39+6 although I too carried my first to 38+4! anyway, ask away any questions, hopefully one of us can help ��

Thanks for the reply! They diagnosed me after a scan. I've just had more news where they've told me my ovaries are full of cysts 🙁 It's been a crap few weeks of nothing but bad news!! Are there varying degrees of bu? Can you have a mild/bad case? Do you know if it can affect growth/small placenta? I had this with my ds and wondered now looking back on it his low birthweight and small placenta was because he didn't have a lot of room in one side due to the bu? The Drs have told me NOTHING about any of this. Seeing a different Dr on Monday hoping to get more information.

Just a normal scan? If so don't put all your money on that diagnosis...yes a bu can have varying degrees (more arcuate or a big split) but many septate uteri have been diagnosed as bu (mine more than once!). I don't mean to say I know better but that maybe you should double check..had I known it was a septum and not bu I would have resected it way sooner and could have avoided 3angels anyway yes both bu and su can cause growth restriction (my son was only 2300kg and had a single artery ambilical cord) and breech position. A su is more likely to cause an early mc while a bu creates space problems and preterm labor in some cases.
I m so sorry about the shitty few weeks..do they know what's causing the cysts?

Thanks for the info, it was a trans abdominal and transvaginal ultrasound. How would they diagnose a septate? I have another appointment on Monday so I can ask then about it. Yeh my ds had a small placenta and cord with a velementous insertion, so that wasn't great. He was only just 6lbs when he was born.

They haven't said what's causing the cysts, other than a hormonal imbalance. I'm really hoping this new Dr on Monday is helpful.

A tv ultrasound is very very unreliable in diagnosing MA. You could ask for a hsg (the one they inject the blue dye), a 4D us or a hysteroscopy. I was diagnosed wrongly twice and then finally had a 4D us which showed the extend of my septum). Anyway I hope your doc can shed some light I know how nerve wrecking this all can be

Hi ladies,
I am new here and I just found this thread. I have a unicornate uterus, myself, and was told I would not likely ever carry child to term. But, 12 years ago, I did. She was born at 40+1 by cesearean because she was a footling breech. She was small, but in perfect health. Since she was 2, I have been trying to conceive #2.
I suspect I have conceived and miscarried early a handful of times in there, but nothing has stuck yet. I can't ever feel certain because, with my daughter, I never did have a BFP HPT. Only in my blood could they ever get a positive result.
I am getting older and starting to feel like my chances may have passed now, but I have always held to the idea that it happened once and, if it is meant to, it will happen again - and this month I feel different. Maybe I'm reading too much into things, but after a decade of this I think I've gotten to be pretty honest with myself and I am hoping against hope that maybe, just maybe, it is my time.
I am really glad to have found this thread. So few people understand what it means to have a condition like this.

Enigmomma welcome on the thread. It is not many of us as you say but hopefully we can help and support each other. I am truly amazed you made it to 40+1 with a uu I barely made it to 39+3 after I had my septum resected!!! I hate doctors with their certain diagnoses...I was told I 100% would never have kids..I have 3 in heaven and 3 on earth so never ever let anyone tel you otherwise! Anyway I really hope this is your month and your gut feeling is right and hope you can share this journey here
