Pregnancy (Definition)

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.

8wks ultrasound showed tilted uterus (flipped backward) how a tilted uterus will affect my pregnancy and baby do I have a chance of miscarriage?

8wks ultrasound showed tilted uterus (flipped backward) how a tilted uterus will affect my pregnancy and baby do I have a chance of miscarriage?

No problem: 30 percent of women have a tilted back uterus. That is similar to being left handed. A tilted back uterus might have more low back pain with periods or while in labor, but won't affect getting pregnant or carrying a pregnancy. Good luck and don't worry.

Does having a tilted uterus make it more common to have an ectopic pregnancy?

Does having a tilted uterus make it more common to have an ectopic pregnancy?

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.

Is it more likely that you'll have an ectopic pregnancy if you have a tilted uterus?

Is it more likely that you'll have an ectopic pregnancy if you have a tilted uterus?

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.

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.

Does early pregnacy cause a uterus to tilt?

How early?: It could, but likely wouldn't, especially early. A tilted uterus is not abnormal, not is it a sign of pregnancy. If you can be more specific, we might give a more helpful answer.

During my two pregnancies uterus was anterverted. After second child it was retroverted. Now it s anterverted. Is that normal to be changing shape.

During my two pregnancies uterus was anterverted. After second child it was retroverted. Now it s anterverted. Is that normal to be changing shape.

Uterus: Anteverted and retroverted uterus is not about the shape of the uterus, it is about the position of it. Possibly the pregnancies stretched the ligaments supporting it and it's changed its position. Both positions are well within the normal range, though.

When should your uterus start to thicken during pregnancy?

When should your uterus start to thicken during pregnancy?

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.

How bad is it to have blood in your uterus during pregnancies?

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.
