Is it psbl to have labour pains n amniotic fluid leakage n still cervix is not dilated..38 weeks pregnant?

Your doctor can do an exam to see if you are really leaking amniotic fluid or if it is something else like urine or a heavy vaginal discharge. Best wishes! ...Read more
Retroverted uterus, 16 weeks pregnant. When my uterus moves position, could it cause brown spotting?
Pregnant: spotting: Retroverted positionwill change at about 16-18 weeks because of the sacral promentory (back bone) which limits where the top of the uterus can be, and pushes it forward. This will cause the typical "baby bump". Brown discharge is not because of the forward movement of the uterus, and should be investigated by a health professional. ...Read more

Monitor yourself carefully and get checked if needed. ...Read more
7 weeks pregnant twins no fetal pole. I have a bicornuate uterus & possible subchorionic hemmorage. Bleeding & cramping when active. Am i miscarrying?
Direction?: I haven't heard that term used to describe a uterus. Maybe the person that said that to you was speaking about the direction of your uterus? Uteruses (uteri) can be tipped forward, anteverted; not tipped at all or straight; or tipped backward (retroverted). Maybe that was what they were referring to? All variations of the tilt or tip of a uterus are normal, by the way. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No differences!: A retroverted uterus is one that's tilted towards your back, rather than your abdomen; it occurs in 20% of women and does not have symptoms, RARELY associated with discomfort. It can't be prevented and there's no need to treat b/c it won't affect your fertility/ability to continue a pregnancy/have a vaginal delivery.
