Bicornuated Uterus??

Hello everyone! Tomorrow I will be 6 weeks along. This is my third pregnancy as the first two resulted in MC. It's been a long road... the first one happened so quickly I didn't get the chance to even go to the dr and the second my insurance was messed up and by the time I did get to go, I had already passed everything so did not have documentation of either to see where they went wrong. Upon going to the dr after the second one they found a 7cm cyst on one of my ovaries I had laparoscopically removed in June when they also found a speck of endometriosis (wonderful) and due to that my dr told me I may be at a greater risk of tubal pregnancy (anything else??). Well, due to the combination of my history and I had a little little pink spotting a couple times earlier this week the dr did an u/s Mon (just showed "fluffy" good endometrium in uterus) and another u/s Thursday that showed our little bean and heartbeat in the right place (YAY). During that u/s the tech said to me "Has anyone ever told you you have a bicornuated uterus?" I said no and of course went home and Googled it... Bad decision. Everything about it sounds terrible like high risk of MC and deformities d/t lack of space, preterm labor etc ugh! I can't get a break. I'm wondering if anyone else has this or has heard of it? I'm not sure of the extent of mine, but I would've thought with all the u/s and the cyst removal surgery someone would've mentioned this to me sooner. The u/s tech didn't sound concerned, she just mentioned it and said "it's a normal variance of the uterus" but after researching, it seems like it could be pretty serious. I suppose there's not much I can do about it now, just hope everything is ok this time around. I'm having a hard time being excited for this bc of our history. DH is very supportive and just keeps telling me to stay positive which, of course, is easier said than done when you're constantly a nervous wreck. I know what will be will be, but I don't know if I could go through that terrible situation again. It just seems like every time there worse news or something else to worry about.

Hi ladies! I'm happy to say I will be 20 weeks tomorrow. :) We have our anatomy scan on Monday and will hopefully find out what we're having if baby cooperates. Everything has been going really well. I've had a few scares here and there along the way. Some bleeding at 8 weeks, spotted through the rest of first trimester, then thanks to the horrible weather we've been having here, I fell on the ice a few weeks ago (ugh), but baby has been a trooper so far through all of it. I'm hoping the rest of the pregnancy goes smoothly and quickly. Quickly also would be nice as I'm in nursing school, too, through all of this and that's a whole other stressor in itself. haha Anyway, thank you for the responses.

Eeeee! So exciting, I've been thinking of you and I was starting to get a bit nervous. I fell on ice too, my OB assured me that the baby is pretty well protected in there. Damn ice though! 

So glad to hear everything is progressing well, come back and update us when you find out the sex!!

Hi ladies! We found out Monday baby is a BOY! DH is obviously over the moon he got his wish ;) Of course, we'd be happy as long as it's healthy. That's all you really hope for. MKCalderon, I completely know the feeling, counting down every day closer to be past that trimester, but I'm sure everything will be ok! It's so hard not to stress and worry every time you see that. My dr said it would stop after first trimester, and of course I was skeptical, but literally right around I think 13 or 14 weeks, it stopped and I haven't had any since (knock on wood).
