Justkeeptrying-i thought so too about progesterone but my left side seems to be utterly stupid and just goes on as normal!i jope you het your didelphys diagnosis thursday and you re back on the train soon!i think it is a didelphys just because you have two cervixes!keep up updates and good luck hun i ll be thinking of you!

Tink-hey hey hey! So happy to hear from you!! Can i ask did you bleed for long with your son?and were you put on bed rest? I am soooo sooo happy for you and that this pg is progressing so well!thank you for the encouraging note it really really helps!

Ches-hey hun! I think (but not 100% maybe justkeeptryin can say for sure) that with didelphys you dont have septums or bad parts so baby can implant and grow anywhere with no problem...it s just that is has less space. As for the cervix they can keep checking the length every couple of weeks so if they see it shortening they can put in a cerclage. I think it is because of the pressure the baby puts on the cervix!hope i helped! Good luck with your scan and keep us updated!

I have a bicornuate uterus and had bleeding from week 14 until 18. A thorough ultrasound at 14 weeks determined I had a very large (the size of a lemon) blood clot--they weren't sure if it was even bigger possibly extending into the left horn (babe is in the right horn).

I was put on modified bed rest...take it easy, no lifting, etc...my OB was very realistic about the risks...especially given how big my clot was.

At my last ultrasound (last week) the clot had almost completely resolved!! YAY!!! The little man is very active and I feel him all the time (which I LOVE).

My pregnancy is being followed very closely by a highrisk OB (ultrasounds and cervix checks every two weeks). Make sure you get all the care you need...it really helped me stay positive...I know how hard it is when you feel like you have no control over the situation.

I am now 22 weeks 3 days and things are looking up Try and stay positive. Sending good vibes your way!

Hey tinyfeet thank you so much for your post i am so happy when i read nice encouraging stories it really lifts my spirits!!so the blood clot was in the baby's side but didnt affect it right? And did they say what caused the clot to form? I am waiting for this stupid haematoma to be reabsorbed (as i am not bleeding as of monday not even brown but the doc said the left side was full of it) so that i can relax a little bit and hopefully have the cerclage put in.
It must be so amazing to be able to feel your lo (boy?) i cant wait!!yaaaayyyy for such a food progress and good news and i wish you have to wait another good 17-18 weeks to meet your lo! Keep us updated on how it goes we all love hearing good news we can grab onto!!

Hi, I am just home from my hysteroscopy. Its been confirmed that I do have uterus didelphys - two seperate normal sized wombs. I feel so glad to finally have got to the bottom of this and start ttc again. My right cervix leads to a normal sized womb with normal endometrial lining. My left cervix is apparently a bit underdeveloped but again leads to a normal sized womb but the lining isnt as rich as the right side. But both sides are completely capable of holding a pregnancy. I definetely dont have a uterus septum which Im so relieved about. So my next course of action is to try again and when a positive pregnancy test I will be taking a low dose aspirin, heparin blood thinning injections and also progesterone to support the pregnancy. It really does seem clear now that my blood clotting problem has been the cause of the miscarriages and not my womb. Ive read such good outcomes about didelphys so not going to concern myself too much.

Lorraine- YAYAYYAYAYSYAYYAYAYAYYAYAYAYYAY for such a good diagnosis!!!yay yay and again yay! it seems logical to assume that your blood clotting problem caused you miscarriage..even if your womb wasnt normal sized it wouldnt cause a mc so early on! so now you know the cause and the treatment i am 100% sure everything will run perfectly smooth next time! Plus you wont have to worry about were baba implants cause that was my biggest worry all along! congrats again hun, i am so happy for you! jump on that train (and dh) and we ll soon be chatting away on baby names!!!

The clot was beside the baby (and was bigger than him at one point) --my doctor is not certain what caused it...my placenta looks fine and he assumes it was bleeding that occurred very early on in my pregnancy.

Here's to an uneventful pregnancy for all of us!!
