I have a retroverted uterus. My dr. said my bump will grow up and not out as much. Has anyone else had this?

He said it will make me not show as early

  • Yes, it's because your uterus is tilted so far back. This was the case with my last pregnancy.

  • isn't that just where your uterus flips backwards?? my gyno just told me that last week.. however i showed at normal times.

  • i kind of have the same problem except mine tilts to the right and its shaped funny i guess. im showing normal as far as i know. if yours tilts back i would imagine you just wont show as early but i wouldnt worry about it nothing wrong with you its just the way you were made.

  • I have a tilted uterus and I was 200% belly with my last pregnancy. I'm not sure if that is the same thing though.

  • I have a retroverted uterus and I looked like all other pregnant women with my last pregnancy and with this one. Doesn't make a difference. I've had multiple doctors tell me this.

  • I have a etroverted uterus and I didn't show early with any of my 4 children. Also, as soon as I deliver, I no longer look pregnant at all. Most women still look 5 months or so pregnant for a week or so after delivery. Not me, I just look chubby.
