Discuss with OB: A thin uterus could mean a higher risk of uterine rupture during the late stages of pregnancy or during labor.Please discuss this at length with the ob. If s/he thinks the risk in your case is small, pregnancy would be an easy option.If not, risk of your own life and the baby would be possible.
