What do other pregnant moms do when they have a tilted uterus?

“The doctor didn’t seem concerned with it at all. I’ve had lower back pain; today, my back, spine and neck have been especially sore. I’ve just attributed it to the hormones and relaxants in my body right now.”

“I have a tilted uterus. The midwife said that they almost always go back into the proper position at 10 to 12 weeks and that lower back pain is a very common complaint for women with the tilt this early on. My heating pad in bed and the heated seats in the car have been my best friends.”

“I have one that was discovered years ago. I’ve never had any issues, and I brought it up again at my first appointment with my OB, and she said, ‘It’s like someone being left- or right-handed; some women have a tilted uterus.’”
