<flower>Some women have a heart-shaped uterus, a condition called uterine didelphys or bicornate uterus, depending on some other factors. Patients with this condition (as well as those with large uterine fibroids) are at risk for preterm labor and delivery, because the uterine cavity does not expand in the same manner to permit enlargement of the term-sized fetus, possibly resulting in preterm contractions.

It's known as PUPPP, short for "pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy," and is the most common pregnancy-related skin condition, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.
