i am looking for any stories or experiences from ladies who have a septate uterus & became pregnant. I could really do with some more 'real life' info on this!
i am 31 years old, had a missed miscarriage in February (medically managed at 10 weeks but docs think baby died at 6). I am now 7 weeks pregnant again.
on sunday (at 6+ 4 days) i had some bleeding & got very upset & anxious thinking i was going to miscarry again... Went to the ER on advice from my OB triage nurse. My beta hcg was good at 29,164. TV ultrasound showed baby measuring 6+1 (so growing fine) & heartbeat at 115bpm which is good from what I've read.
my worry is 2 things:
1) the scan showed that i am bleeding in my uterus. The ER doc couldnt tell me why or what this might mean going forward.
2) they told me that the scan showed I have a septate uterus... Which is the first I've heard this! They didnt give me any more info re: my particular case... Eg how big the septate is or where the baby is implanted.
now i'm pretty scared about what this might mean for the chances of this little one making it... I've read up as much as I can... Official research / information talks about an extremely high miscarriage rate but i've read a few stories from individual women who managed to have a successful pregnancy.
i have a followup scan on tuesday with my OB & am so worried! Also trying to be as prepared with info about this condition as i can be so I can ask questions at the appointment.
hoping there are some ladies on here who can help!
