Unhappy Incarcerated uterus??

Does anyone have any info about or experience with an incarcerated uterus? This is where a retroverted uterus does not correct itself and then does not pop up and out from behind the pelvic bone as it is supposed to. I have the following symptoms of it:

- frequent need to urinate
- sense of incomplete bladder emptying
- urinary retention (inability to empty bladded)

I have had to strain very hard just urinate sometimes. Not all the times, but often. Its as though I have to act like I am having a difficult bowel movement in order to urinate and let a litte out at a time. This is a very difficult way to urinate and to fully empty my bladder. I often cannot empty it in this way at one time. Symptoms for incarcerated uterus generally start at 12-14wks. Mine started about 11 weeks. I am now almost 16 weeks.

The problems of this are very bad, and if not fixed early enough can cause miscarriage. I am quite concerned. My belly measurments have also not changed in a month, which also leads me to belive that my uterus is not starting to move beyond the pelvic bone.
