Coming from the masters of hype (What to Expect):
|In 20 percent of women, the top of the uterus is tilted toward the back instead of the front. In most cases, the uterus rights itself by the end of the first trimester.|
Where did you read that? Because I have been unable to find any info on it. Is there a specific problem from your C-section that you are referring to that produces the problem?
I have no idea about my adhesions. I'm about 12 weeks and it's still tilted pretty far back. It was tilted my last pregnancy also.
One question about adhesions though. Before I got pregnant this time, I could feel a "bump" under my incision... Is this going to be ok for a VBAC? I'm wondering if my uterus incision feels the same...

So what I understand is that if I went to him at say 20 weeks, he would have never known, cause it would be no differant than normal. Now that's just my understanding, but I have never heard that tilted uterus means c-section, ever.
My midwife told me the same, it does not matter since as your pregnancy progresses your uterus moves. Mine is tilted back normally. I had 10 lb and 9 lb babies vaginally.

I think that advice must have come sgortly after "women with a tilted uterus can't get pregnant"
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
I'm sorry but it sounds like some sort of invented reason because your ob wants you to have another section. Get a new provider.
my grandma once told me that her uterus was "upside down and backwards" and her dr didn't know how she kept having babies.
