Blood clot in uterus... Any experiences?


Basically I'm around 6 weeks pregnant, had a scan, live fetus with hb seen but also a relatively large blood clot (in comparison to the sac) struggling to stay positive right now, I've been told it's just a wait and see game, things might me okay... They might not be :/ I had a miscarriage in November too!


Any experiences?

Do you mean a subchorionic hematoma? I had a small one with this pregnancy and it was gone by the 12 week scan. I don't have any experience with a large one though.

Edit: my doctor did tell me it was the most common issue that they see with pregnant women and are usually caused by implantation bleeding, and that normally they are not a big deal

Thanks for all your replies ladies, I'm annoyed because it seems like a really common problem and they didn't tell me anything about it, just said, you've got a clot in your uterus go home, come back in two weeks we can't tell you if you'll miscarry... And that was it! Cue the panic of course!

I had one in my last pregnancy and worried like mad. They weren't v reassuring and just ssid 'well both babies have heartbeats for now'!
We did lose one but it was nothing to do with the clot and by 12 weeks it had gone.

Thanks lots... You're at the same hospital as me I think, they told me if you start spotting don't ring us until its been a week if you have a big bleed then contact us immediately! I've started brown spotting this morning

Fgh? Yeah... I'd just ring, you might get someone nice on the other end? Or phone ward 1 if no luck?

I haven't myself but I know others who had and they were ok. It just disappeared. I think they can cause some bleeding, I don't know if they can also be just reabsorbed?
If it's any help I have had various kinds of spotting/bleeding in all my pregnancies and they were fine with the exception of one, but my mc was very different to my three children I bled with, as that just carried on and got worse whereas the bleeds with my children always varied and stopped and started.
I would call the epau and see if you can speak to someone more helpful and maybe have another scan for reassurance. Explain you suffered a miscarriage recently and you want reassurance that this one is ok. I did this with mine and they were happy to accommodate me
