Re: tilted uterus anyone?

I have a tilted uterus.... but to be honest I don't know which way it tilts! My midwife has never mentioned that it makes things easier or harder, but I hear it makes for more painful menstrual cramps (?). I felt my 1st baby move at 20wks, my 2nd at 19, and this time around it was 16wks, so if my uterus is tilted forward then it's not really helping in that area!

Laboring on your back isn't really good for anyone, but I did it the first time around because I was induced and pretty much tethered, and the second time around because my legs didn't feel strong enough to hold me up (though I did change positions, which helps immensely). I kept my back straight, though, rather than laying flat.
