Tilted Uterus And Pregnancy
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
8wks ultrasound showed tilted uterus (flipped backward) how a tilted uterus will affect my pregnancy and baby do I have a chance of miscarriage?
Not really: This may make things a little more challenging to see.
Probably not: Ectopic pregnancies occur when the sperm and egg meet and fertilize and then the fertilized ovum does not make it to the uterus. This is usually a tubal issue (scarring, obstruction, etc). The fertilized egg continue to grow and the tube cannot handle the size and growth and ruptures. Tilting of the uterus in my opinion would not be a recognized cause for this condition.See 2 more doctor answers
Depends.: If by tilted you mean flexed, then it is possible; that can be due to endometriosis and/or pid/salpingitis that predispose to ectopic pregnancies. In general, if this a congenital uterine position, there is no association with ectopics.
Can you please tell me if it's more common to have an ectopic pregnancy if you have a tilted uterus?
No: Absolutely not, that's a myth - good news! ~.
NO: Not at all.Get a more detailed answer ›
How can I locate on my own where the top of my uterus is located at at 19 weeks pregnant? My uterus was tilted backwards earlier in my pregnancy.
Near your navel: At 19 weeks your uterus should be around or just below your navel.
7+4 wks, hCG levels 15750 went up to 18000 after 48 hrs. Empty sac, tilted uterus. Some cramping w/ light brown spotting. Viable pregnancy?
What does doc say?: It surely sounds like this is not a viable pregnancy. But, you asked this question without sharing with us what the physician caring for you says.
During my two pregnancies uterus was anterverted. After second child it was retroverted. Now it s anterverted. Is that normal to be changing shape.
See below: At about 4-6 weeks, but everybody's different.
Yes: As has been said before "nature always finds a way". It is important to followup with a doctor soon after discovering a pregnancy so the appropriate care can be given and complications from the mesh can be alleviated.
Before pregnancy: The endometrial lining of your uterus actually thickens in the second half of your menstrual cycle (the secretory phase) after ovulation, in preparation for pregnancy, as a result of an increase in the hormone progesterone. If you do not get pregnant, your Progesterone level drops, and your uterine lining sheds and is expelled during menses (your period). The cycle then starts over.
Better not to.: Some women do have small hematomas (blood collections) behind the placenta or between the membranes in early pregnancy. Usually these go away on their own without trouble but having a big one that keeps growing can lead to miscarriage. Pregnancy risk of certain complications will be higher.
Palpable means: That it can be felt. So, the uterus is large enough that physician can feel it when examining you.
Grapefruit sized...: At 3 months, the uterus is the size of a grapefruit. At 4 months its the size of a volleyball. Best wishes!
Fist sized: Some people will also compare it to a small pear
