I've heard it is common in about 20% of women to have a tilted or "backwards" uterus. I didn't know that I had one until this pregnancy (it is my 6th pregnancy, so it must have tilted sometime between).
I am 9 weeks, 4 days pregnant, and I am definitely experiencing cramping. I went to the doctor and asked for an ultrasound since I have a history of miscarriage - at the ultrasound, the tech said everything looks good, but I am still very "backward" with my uterus tilting. Everything I've read says that by about 12 weeks it has to move into the forward facing position and usually does that naturally before then simply because there isn't room for the growing uterus outside of the pelvis when it is leaned backward like that.
So... I am still tilted backward, and almost 10 weeks. I know it is early to be concerned about it not having moved "forward" yet, but I'm wondering if it is the reason I am so uncomfortable? Anyone else with a tilted uterus feel this way?
