Thin Uterus

I understand what you are saying, however, some women do have a medical condition that their uterus is thin all of the time and having another baby with this condition can make your uterus rupture and from my understanding happens more often then you would think.

All i know is that my first dr with my first baby found that I had a thin uterus and did not want me to have any more children as (I am guessing) it was too thin to have any more. Well she did NOT tell me and now I am 8.5 months pregnant with my second child and my now dr thought i was aware of the situation and asked me if i wanted my tubes tied. I said no my hubby really wants to have the option of a third child and he said "you know with your condition you were not supposed to have a second child and a third could be VERY dangerous" I had NO idea that anything was wrong and now if I have one contraction or dialate 2 cent or more he is taking this one ASAP. My mother in law found a site that said if you go into full b__wn labor that is when it is more likely that your uterus will rupture. Needless to say I AM getting my tubes tied as I do not want my kids growing up without a mother and my husband to be a young widow. Its just not worth the risk or losing me OR a baby because it can be hard on a fetus as well!

I had a GYN appointment today and I found out I have a thin uterus lining and that I should consult a fertility specialist. I haven't had any children and we were about to start trying, but I was concerned for my lack of menstruation. They did a bunch of tests and an ultrasound and told me my uterus is thin. I have a follow up in april and we'll see what happens then. yes, you read it right, april. good old military healthcare.

I know this post is several years old. Has anyone had a successful pregnancy AFTER being told that they have a really thin uterus wall? If so, how far along were you when you delivered? Please let me know. Thanks so much.

We havent had any luck so far, but we are still trying. Our main issue, well second issue, is our work schedules. We are both in the military and gone alot, so when we are together, it usually isn't the right time in the ovulation window. Hopefully I can come back in a month or so to say "hey, we're pregnant", but we'll see what happens.

I have had 4 C-sections, each one necessary for a different reason. On # 3 was told uterus was very thin, with caution to deliver 2 weeks early should there be a next time. Did so on #4, but uterus was even thinner, alarming docs who warned against having more. Fast forward 2 more years, I started having serious pelvic prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. Now, 12 years after last birth, I have just been diagnosed as an Alpha-1 Anbreastrypsin Deficiency carrier. (Low alpha-1 anbreastrypsin serum levels can be detected by simple blood test. with genetic testing to confirm cause of low level). In reading all about it, I am wondering whether the thin uterus and incontinence are caused by low A1AT levels. (A1AT is a protein that blocks enzymes that degrade elastin, most notable in lungs, but some studies show low levels in vaginal wall of women with incontinence and prolapse.) I am theorizing that a pregnant woman with low A1AT may have a thinning uterus because she does not have enough A1AT to protect the tissue from enzyme degradation. Does anyone with a thin uterus have A1AT deficiency? (people hardly get diagnosed with it, unless they display the worst symptoms it causes -- COPD and liver failure, and these are not likely to show up during childbearing years, so you probably wouldn't even know, but it might be worth exploring.)
