Hi all,
Just wanted to follow up on my last post. I had laporoscopic surgery early July to remove the septate, waited one cycle and got pregnant the very next cycle. I am currently in my 6th week, HCG levels are doubling, and had early scan last week which confirmed implantation in the uterus etc. Will be going back in 2 weeks for a scan to detect the heartbeat, so fingers crossed. Will keep you all posted and best of luck to everyone!

Hello ladies

OMG...I cant believe I finally found a message board about Septate Uterus..

Here is my story I hope it gives other's hope:

At 22years old (January 1999)fell pregnant with 1st child not really expecting to get pregnant on 1st ultrasound was told that it appeared I had a bicornate uterus which could mean early labour.

Went through the pregnancy without much problems except thought I was going into labour at 6mths went away though so musnt of been. At around 7 months pregnant decrease movement of baby only really felt movement on left high side (later discovered it was arm movement) kept complaining of this but on checking baby they informed me everything was fine heart beat good etc and to stop complaining it is nothing. At 36weeks Obstetrician said that baby was breech and booked me in for a caesarean 2 weeks later at 38weeks.

Day before caesarean went for ultrasound to check position head up feet up bum down the sonographer also stated baby was small about 5 pounds. Went in for Caesarean after cutting me open the doctor exclaimed of my f**** god get the forceps the baby is stuck.
So my son was born by forcep delivery in a caesarean section. His weight was 7pounds 2ounces.

After the caesarean the obstetrician came to talk to me I have a complete septate uterus but only have 1 cervix & vagina. My son Jake was in the Left horn and the right horn had not grown whatsoever. I also had a deformation of the lining of my uterus like a golf ball all dimpley so the egg has to land on top of the dimple not in one or the baby miscarries & from what he could see I had miscarried without knowing about 8 or 9 times.

With this I was told to forget about having any more children and I am very fortunate to have my son. They cant remove the septate because it is too thick and the uterus will collapse. And even without the septate having the deformation of my lining make's it even less likely to have another.

With that I would love to tell you all that 7 years later at 30 I am currently 26 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child and this child is in the Right horn of my septum. Within the 7 years I have only ever known of falling pregnant once in 2001 but unfortunately miscarried at 7 weeks.

I had finally given up hope of having another child and sold all my baby gear the following month I found out I was so never never give up hope good luck to everyone trying to conceive.

Tamara

P.S. Both my pregnancy's were natural No IVF because of my lining it is not considered to be any more successful.

Hi Staciepa, I was wondering where you were hanging out these days (I guess on the Feb board). I'm so glad to see that you are pg!! I hope this is a healthy pg for you. I had the HSG procedure done, and they did not see a septum in my uterus, the doctor thinks it may be arcuate (sp) and he says that wouldn't affect a pg. So we are trying again, I should know this weekend if I'm pg!!

Hi

this is very confusing and frustrating right?! It's the not definately knowing what's up that drives me nuts. So one of my obgyns has said he thinks it suggests a septum (mri), but when I had my u/s last week the ultrasound tech said it looks bicorunate! Who knows. I just hope everything works out well with this pg.

Hope you get answers soon.

Hi Stacie-
I just read your message and it sounds just like what I have been going through...had an HSG and found what looked like a septate uterus. Had MRI to confirm. Came back "borderline". "Could just be arcuate." My doctor is getting a second opinion from a few fertility specialists given my history (2 miscarriages -9/05 and 5/06 in first trimester) as to whether or not it really is a septum. He believes that is what is causing it. I hate the waiting game.

Hi Lily

Also answered on the other thread, but just to re-iterate, I had the op to remove my septum last August (was also an almost complete septum)but the op was absolutely fine and I was able to go home that night. I was put on baby asprin and waited a month before TTC. I unfortunately am also insulin resistent and this brings about many of it's own problems when TTC - after 5 months of trying naturally, we were put onto fertility injections to assist with my ovulation and low progesterone. You can imagine our delight when we fell pregnant 2nd month and am happy to say that I'm almost 20 weeks pregnant with a very healthy and active baby.

Before I had the op, I had had 4 miscarriages all at 10 weeks and I am so glad that my specialist decided to remove the septum once and for all - Good luck to you I'm sure the outcome of your op will be positive!

Candice


After 4 miscarriages we're finally pregnant with our first baby.
Due 27th November in sunny South Africa.

Hi Stacie,
Just joined this website...congratulations on your pregnancy and I hope all goes well for you. I just had surgery to remove a septated uterus last week; the fertility specialist told me I should wait one cycle before trying to conceive. Did you or anyone else have the surgery and how long after the surgery did it take to conceive successfully?
Thanks!

I'm glad things are going well so far this time...let's keep it that way!
I bled my entire 1st pregnancy and they were able to determine that it was from the other horn as well.
My septum is thick and long and I was nervous when I found out I was pregnant again because of the description and measurements that I learned about after my c-section with my daughter. We made it to 36 weeks. If you have any contractions early on, not matter how early get to the hospital ASAP. If I had waited or hoped it was nothing and waited I may not have my daughter. I first went into preterm labor at 20 weeks and the faster you get to the hospital the better the chances of stopping labor are.
We had to do a c-section for several reasons. My doctor told me from day once practically that I would be having one because fetal malpresentation (breech, transverse etc) is very common with septate uterus. Plus because of the septum it would not be safe to try and turn the baby. My daughter as transverse the entire time. The other reason was because I had 30 weeks of bedrest (almost my entire pregnancy)so I had muscles that atrophied etc and I couldn't handle labor plus I also developed preeclampsia and they had to deliver the baby because my condition was getting worse.
I will be having to have another c-section this time too because of the way the septum is configured and how thick it is it's unsafe to try a vaginal birth. I'm okay with it but wish I could at least try but I would rather have a healthy baby and keep me safe.
It is scary when you hear that you have a 25% chance with this condition. For me the name of the game was getting the little one to not implant on the septum and then after that just prevent preterm labor and stay on top of that.
I'll let you know how #2 is going. So far I haven't bled at all this pregnancy and the other horn is clear...no blood. As opposed to last time the other horn was full of blood and clots almost the entire time but the baby was fine.
Hang in there and personally I have become fascinated with this whole septate thing. I hope things stay uneventful but be prepared for more frequent doctor's visits than your average pregnant woman and the possibility of bedrest at some point...you may not have it but just be aware it's a possibility.
Keep me posted and I'm not usually on this board so if you need to chat or ask a question you know to find me on the May 2006 board!!!
Good luck and isn't it fun to be unique!!! : )

Hi,
Thank you so much for your story...
I have had 4 MC, and they are certain that they are most likely because they were implanted in the Septate because of the timing of the MC's but at least partially because of Progesterone as well... Though I am not sure if that is not an effect of the baby being attached to the right place... Who knows....
The Specialist that I saw was actually about ready to have me go in for surgury... But I ended up being PG. I had an US at 6 weeks to determine placement and it looked good. My Septum is large, but not complete, so I am hoping that it doesn't cause me to be too early...
I have had bleeding through this PG. It has been mostly light, but fairly consistant. I had a week off and I am back to it again. I just hope that it it just the other half. According to the US I had yesterday that is what they determined. I have an appointment on the 18th, so I will be going over more information about what they think I should expect. Did they do the C-section because your dd hadn't turned or was it just because it was risky?
I am so glad that you shared your story! It is very rare indeed to hear of another with this sime Uterus. So I am glad to have a sucess story after my Dr told me I have a 25% chance of carying a baby to term.. That is a scary number to say the least! But to know that you have done it gives me hope that I too can be in that 25% group!
Thanks again... And I will for sure keep in touch with you as things progress with me... and you... I am 11 weeks, so you are just a couple months ahead of me... It will be nice to have some footsteps to follow.
Stacie,
Hang in there I hope they can give you some definite answers with your MRI! Keep us posted!

Hello!!

I am so glad I found your thread!! I am actually getting MRI results tomorrow to see whether I have a Bicorunate or a Septate Uterus....I am soooo nervous right now. I've known I've had a different shaped uterus since high school, but nothing was certain....I got pg in November but sadly m/c in december. I know that the m/c probably didn't have anything to do with the shape of uterus, but it still worries me with future pgs...I am so nervous my doctor is going to tell me something bad...Your story is hope for me, thanks!!
