|Diagram Bicornuate Uterus|
This struck me, not really understanding why this was a big deal. I thought about it all that afternoon and when I came home dropped "Bicornuate Uterus" into Google. Wow. Just, wow. "Several studies show that women with a bicornuate uterus have about a 60% success rate in delivering a living child but have a higher risk of cervical incompetence," said one site. 60%. 60! "Premature labor, a breech presentation and/or a retained or trapped placenta are also common complaints with a bicornuate uterus," (italics mine) warned another. I couldn't believe it. I'd had no problems. None getting pregnant, being pregnant (minus the usual several weeks of nausea) and until the accreta issues with Ashlyn's birth, no issues with delivery. But that trapped placenta. . .
Reality is, though, I've got two little miracles. I mean, I already knew this. I really did. But I'm a little stunned by this, this thing I never knew. Still working it all out. But love these two. A lot.
