Double everything - except kidneys


Hi

I just stumbled upon this forum after a year of discovery on the fertility front. During an internal scan with my first ever pregnancy the sonographer starts asking lots of questions which is never a good sign (sigh). Well after several other ultrasounds and lots of umming and aahhhing by respective sonographers about the shape of my uterus I eventually insisted on having an MRI done. Sadly my first pregnancy just under a year ago ended in early miscarriage (~6weeks) and I just wanted to know why.

Well fast forward 2 months (which is pretty quick by NHS standards) and the consultant is telling me the MRI shows 2 ovary, 2 uteri, 2 cervices and 2 vaginas (separated by a thin septum). Well I was gobsmacked by that news to get to the age of 39 and to not even have a clue! Apparently I should have been sent for a scan years ago when it was found out I only have 1 kidney, as uterine abnormalities are common alongside missing kidneys.

Anyway I get pregnant again 5 months later and all they can say is I have a slightly higher risk of preterm labour but equally there could be no problems. Well sadly I gave birth at 21 weeks with no warning at all. I felt a bit unwell and started to bleed a bit so went straight to the hospital. Within half an hour of arriving my waters had literally popped and gone and 5 minutes later my baby boy appeared with virtually no pain and definitely no pushing from me. Such a shock so now I am trying to learn more about whether didelphic uterus might be responsible. No-one spoke to me at all whilst I was in hospital and I have my consultant appointment next week which I am dreading. Does anyone else here have any experience of this?

Hi all,

I'm not pregnant yet but am going to have an IUI done this Friday. If I get pregnant, this will be my first.

In 2015 I was diagnosed with a unicornuate uterus. I spoke with a perinatal specialist to have her sign off on fertility treatment and not only was she confident that I could successfully carry a baby, she was confident I could carry to term (at least to 38 weeks).

My question is for anyone who has experienced this: is pregnancy in a unicornuate uterus considered high risk, and therefore not eligible for birth with a midwife or at a birthing center? I ask because I truly despise hospitals...I despise IVs unless they are actually needed and I would very, very much prefer to give birth at a birthing center. Does anyone have experience with that?

Thanks for your input!

Babydaydreams hi! We ve "spoken" on the IC board but wanted to welcome you on this thread too!

Co-fostermom hi. With a unicornuate uterus there is a very high risk your baby won't be head down. It's not impossible but they normally turn head down when they re a bit larger at which point there is usually not much space to turn in an MA uterus. So I m guessing that a birthing center might be difficult if your bub is footling or breach. If it's head down then I don't see why a uu would be an issue.

My first was breech second head down. I’m uu w/left horn.
It is high risk. Most of time you will delivery early as well. You’ll have to deliver in a hospital because of the potential of complications at delivery. Most likely you’ll need a c section. Usually around 37-38 weeks.

I guess I should get used that now then. There is one "birthing center" inside the hospital I want to give birth at should the iui I had yesterday be successful and the pregnancy goes well...if there are complications then I'm already at a hospital. I do appreciate everyone's input though! It helps me prepare for and accept a different kind of birth.

Cofostermom I guess what you said last is the most important thing..to be prepared mentally...it's not impossible but it's best to be prepared...ds1 was head down and full term, 2mc then dd1 a footling with IC born prematurely, another mc and dd2 full term and head down....of this all what scared me the most was being unprepared. I truly hope it all works out perfectly and we get to follow your pg

So hereís a new question: how many of you had a successful IUI? What were your pre-bfp symptoms and were you able to tell the difference between them and the hormone meds? Iím 13dpiui today and still getting bfns so Iím pretty discouraged. Any help or encouragement is super welcome!
