Hi, I guess I am looking for anyone else who has had or currently has a Subchorionic Hemorrhage to share their story.
I started bleeding (bright red) when I went to the supermarket at just over 5 weeks pregnant. Having suffered pregnancy loss before I was devastated (only my 4th pregnancy out of 6 has been successful). I had a scan and was told I had a bleed next to the pregnancy sac and that the sac had implanted quite far over to the left. I had another couple of bleeds after this and had another u/s at just over 6 weeks, the SCH was still there but so was a lovely flickering heartbeat.
I started bleeding on Thursday night which was a rusty colour (sorry about the detail) and was pleased as all the posts I had seen online said this was positive and the clot may be drying up. The thing is since then the bleeding has turned to red again with small clots and tissue. I have also suffered with a few mild period type cramps. I do have another u/s booked in for tomorrow but what I would like to know is how much bleeding is too much bleeding? Is red blood bad? Is it normal to cramp?
Not quite the same thing I don't think but I have a hematoma above baby A's sac and it was a decent size at 6 weeks but a week later it looked smaller so I guess some of the blood reabsorbed but I was told I might start bleeding and if I did they'd do a scan right away to check on everything but not to worry too much because it was a 50/50 chance of it either reabosrbing or just bleeding. I am hoping on friday that it is totally reaborbed because I have a history of m/c too and I know how scary bleeding can be! I hope everything is okay and you see that wonderful flicker tomorrow.
Sorry no advice but didnt want to read and run. I did have a pregnancy where i bleed @ 9 weeks, then @ 13 weeks, then @ 17 weeks i did micarry @ 20 weeks due to Incompetent cervix. So some of the outcomes are good if they are not further complications associated with them.
At seven weeks I began to bleed huge clots, and bright red blood. I'm talking about a heavy flow of blood like I had started my period. I was sure I miscarried. I went to the emergency room twice. The first time they checked the baby and there it was bouncing around. Well the next week it got worse. This time I was absolutely positive I miscarried. Went back the er and there was the baby again. Healthy and bouncing around. The doctor told me I had a hemorrhage.
Long story short, Here I am at 12 weeks and the baby is still doing great. Yes there is a possibility to lose the baby if the blood were to surround it completely. But the doctor said that most of the time women with this do not miscarry. Keep positive and dont be afraid to call the doctor if you experience my bleeding. Most likely they will just watch you closer and give you more scans Your little one should be fine.
Just an update from today. Unfortunately it was not good news, there was no heartbeat this time. The sonographer called in someone else to confirm this. The bleed was almost gone and the pregnancy had moved right into the uterus so had a heartbeat been there it would all have been perfect.
I go back next week for an u/s to see whats going on as I am at high risk having suffered a molar pregnancy before and gestational trophoblastic disease following my 3rd miscarriage (another story completely but both occasions resulted in chemo).
Although I was mostly expecting this outcome today I am still very upset as I don't actually know if I can put myself, my family or my body through this again but I know I want more children.
Thanks you for all your support and for anyone who has a SCH who has read this please do not worry that your pregnancy will be the same as mine as each pregnancy is very different and the consultant is not even sure that the SCH was the reason the heartbeat stopped.
