I'm 16 weeks pregnant and have a 2mm defect in the lower part of my uterus which is 6mm long. I'm at high risk for a separation of the uterus. I'm very tense and worried that I may not make it through incase of increased pressure by the baby.

Does anyone know of or heard about someone being in the same situation. What was their outcome?

Let my try to help. It sounds like you have a small separation of the placenta. This can be seen on ultrasound and cause bleeding but may have no symptoms. The medical term for this is subchorionic hematoma. If I understand your post correctly and this is what it is, you will be fine.

 

These are very common and usually do not cause any problems. There is a rare condition where this separation can get larger and cause a miscarriage but this is very unlikely in your case. At 16 weeks with a tiny defect you have nothing to worry about.

 

Here is a link for more information:
