How many c sections are safe if you have a bicornate uterus?

I just had my second c section, my third child. This time they told me about my uterus. Had no idea with the first two.

How did they not know about it?  I would figure they would have saw it during an ultrasound.  My good friend has a bicornate uterus, and she's pregnant with twins.  They said she might have to have a c-section, so I don't think it's any less safe than a c-section with a normal uterus, but I'm not sure about repeat c-sections... so here is a bump!

I have no idea, especially since they would have noticed during my first c section, and I had 3 u/s with this pregnancy.

Did you ever have preterm labor?

At 5 months with #2, but ds1 was in the hospital at the time, so it was attributed to stress. I was due in January 28 that pregnancy, went into labor on the 9th, again a week later, was sent home both times for failure to progress, then was induced on my due date. That's when we found out he was breech.

Oh hmm, maybe that could have been from your uterus, because it can make you go into preterm labor.  They already gave my friend a tour of our NICU at like 20 weeks because they are expecting her to go so early with her bicornate uterus :(

I hope those babies are able to bake as long as they need to be healthy. Keep me posted on their progress.

I know my heart breaks for her!  My son was born early, he weighed 1lb 14oz and spent 72 days in the NICU....so I know she's got a very long road ahead and the poor girl is scared out of her mind....so sad :(
