Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Hi I'm 23 and this is my fourth pregnancy. I also have a tilted uterus. I have been able to carry everyone of my babies and deliver them vaginally. They were all born facing up which hurts worse but I can't say for sure that it had to do with my uterus being tilted. It hurts worse for them to check me than it would for someone with a normal uterus but its tolerable. I don't think you will have any complications from it but if you are worried then you should talk to your dr about it. They will be able to put your mind at ease better than I will. Good luck and congrats! :)
