Tilted Uterus

L - August 17

I have had 4 pregnancies and just found out my uterus is tilted during an ultrasound. Never was told before. Didn't have any ultrasounds before the 8th week of pregnancy either so I don't know it would affect picking it up in the very early weeks.

I have retroverted uterus and 6 weeks pregnant. The only discomfort is having rectal pressure. I asked my doctor and he said it could be because of my tilted uteus. Has anybody experience this too? Any exercise you know that can help the uterus move forward to allow room for growth of the baby?

Hi everyone, I have been reading all your stories with great interest. I have recently been for an ultrasound regarding an ovarian cyst that I have. While I was there, I was told that I have a retroverted or tipped uterus. I have been researching this on the internet and have been very interested to hear what everyone has to say and their experiences with this. Now things make more sense. I have had no major problems just things about constipation and bladder that now fall into place, because doctors do not offer much information sometimes. I will now have to ask next time I am at the doc's, if I have had this all my life or if it has happened during one of my pregnancies. I have had five children with no complications or problems during pregnancy or birth. Good luck to everyone with conceiving, confortable pregnancies and safe births. Hugs and healthy babies to all.

I was born with a tilted uterus. I am five months pregnant with my second child. We never had any problems hearing our babies heartbeat or seeing her on the ultrasound. I can tell you this. My first pregnancy I had severe back labor. I had urinary incontinence at the end of my pregnancy and I had severe back pain starting my sixth month. I could not even lay in bed. I had to sleep sitting up on the couch. My ob said that all of the problems I had were due to my tilted uterus. He said each baby that I have it will just be worse. I can tell you this one I am having the same problems with but it has started earlier. I have pain in my abdomen and in my lower back. I cannot walk very far. I guess no Christmas shopping for me other than on-line :)

I'm finding all these stories interesting. I was told years ago that I have a tipped uterus. I am 12 weeks pregnant and have noticed for the past two nights that I'm am having trouble urinating when I wake at night. I have to push hard and frequently produce only a trickle! It's frustrating and quite disconcerting and I've been finding it hard to get a good night's sleep because of it. My twelve week appointment is tomorrow. Guess what I'll be asking about?!?

I also have a tilted uterus. i had to go to the ER last week an they did an U/S and they had to do a v____al one because the belly one you couldnt see anything!


claire - November 22

the things i've experienced were rectal pressure when i was on my 1st month, then on third month, i had difficulty in urinating, one case that i had to be caterized to drain the urine (that was probably the uterus was about the tilt forward as the baby grows (15 weeks). the embryo was seen as early as 9 weeks.

I am currently pregnant with my 3rd child. I have a tilted uterus, and with all my first ultrasounds around 7 weeks I had to have a transv____al one. By 12-15 weeks tho, you should be able to see the baby with a regular ultrasound.

I am 7 1/2 weeks pregnant with my fourth child. Last week I went to the emergency room b/c of v____al spotting and cramping. They did an interv____al ultrasound, which is when the technician told me I had a tilted uterus. I was totally unaware of that, no Dr. has ever told me during the previous three pregnancies about that problem. My OB did an internal and said my cervix was closed (which is a good sign) but put me on complete bedrest due to a threatened abortion. I am not scheduled to go back to the Dr. until next Tuesday for another HCG quant_tive and ultrasound, but my bleeding has worsened and the crampinh is constant........I feel so helpless and that I am losing my baby? Has anyone else experienced this and went full term?

In early pg, they do transv____al u/s and the baby should be just as clearly seen as those without T.U. I was just told yesterday at my 7w3d u/s that my uterus was tilted to the back. They usually "untilt" by the end of the first trimester when the uterus is above the pubic bone. IF (and this is a rare if) it remains tilted past that, it can contribute to m/c, but that is so amazingly rare, it's not even worth thinking about. The big thing about a tilted uterus is that it can sometimes cause trouble ttc. As far as pg goes, every once in a while it makes it difficult to find the hb with a doppler before the end of the first trimester, but a lot of OB's don't try before then anyway. So no, there shouldn't be any trouble finding the baby in an u/s.

I have a retroverted uterus and I saw my baby for the first time at 6 weeks. Now I'm 23 weeks pregnant and had another ultrasound, baby is growing like it should has a good heartbeat.

Well, I just saw the doctor yesterday for a First Screen Ultrasound, and I apparently have a tilted uterus too. He didn't seemed concerned about it at all. He said that it will probably reposition itself correctly as the baby grows. I had my first v____al ultrasound at 8 weeks and we could see the baby.

I have a tipped uterus, however i have never been told what type by a doctor. I recently read Taking Charge of Your Fertility which requires cervical checks.. So it appears that my uterus is tipped to theleft and back. I have also found by reading this book that I may be anovulatory. I hear conflicting stories on conception and a tipped uterus. So what is true?

I have a tilted uterus and while i had no problem getting pregnant the doctor could not find the heartbeat by dopplar at 12 weeks and had a very difficult time finding the baby by u/s, other than that it caused me no other problems or pain throughout my pregnancy.

I am currently 32 weeks pregnant and I couldn't see my baby with an exterior ultrasound until 21 weeks. As I had a few troubles in the early stages all my ultrasounds (4) were done internally. I also couldn't hear the baby's heartbeat until about the same time.
