Subchorionic Hemorrhage?


Ok, well last night, I went to the bathroom, wiped and had a little bit of bleeding. I went straight to the emergency room, where they did blood work and scanned baby. The doc said I have a subchorionic hemorrhage, or hematoma, one of the two, (cant remember) and that I need to be on bed rest, and rest my pelvis, no sexual activity, and to call my OB on monday for an apt. I am scared! We saw peanut again and peanut looked fine, looked bigger and heartbeat was 122....
Has anyone else had this happen?
Doc said that these things normally resolve themselves and baby should be ok, that only about 10% of these go bad, but I cant help but worry........

I had a inter-uterine hematoma, but mine was outside the gestational sac (so not sub-chronic) and near my cervix. It had reabsorbed at my 12 week scan but I had 3 occasions of bleeding before then as it came away.

i had one with my dd. But mine again was below the sac. I had 2 lots of bleeding and it was gone by 12 weeks. I used to work in a early scan department and we saw these all the time. Think a few a week at least.and with them all i can only remember 1 time that it didnt end well. All the rest sorted its self out x

hi - i also have a haematoma but it isnt near the sac it is on the opposite side of the uterus....

i have had 2 bleeds and so far 2 scans, one when with the 1st bleed and another 2 weeks later - the little bubba had grown and was ok but i was told to expect more bleeding... i have another reassure scan in 2 weeks and then my 12 week scan in 4 weeks, am hoping it would have been reabsorbed by then...

it is very frightening bleeding, esp as i had a mmc in the summer so thought was losing it, the scans were very reassuring and my doctors didnt seem to be too concerned...

hope everything is OK - have they offered you another scan in a couple of weeks? if not, i would ask for this.

I have a Subchorionic Hemorrhage as well. I also had a small amount of spotting so I went to the ER where they found it. It's a small one, 1cm and the doctor doesn't seem too concerned about it. She hasn't put me on any restrictions. I have a scan this week to see if it's gotten any bigger. I was seven weeks when they found it and I'll be 10 weeks when I have my scan.

hya hun i have a subcronic hematoma on the lining of the sac it started out at 1cm then by the time i was 8 weeks it had gotten to 3cm i started bleeding really heavy so i went the next day for a scan and it had reduced in size the next day i lost a really really large clot when i went to the toilet but it was in a sealed bag like thing and was sitting in the bottom of the toilet (sorry TMI) it was like it was in its own sac or sumthing i thort i had lost the baby so they put me in for another scan and it was still 1.7mm so it is disolving slowly. I was told by my doctor that nearly all of them decrease in size and disolve by 20 weeks and that they just keep an eye on it to make sure it doesnt get any bigger and if it does they just watch it as it can cause early labor. Youl be fine hun they are very common. Good Luck to you xx

Thank you so much for all of your responses! The doctor told me I need to be on bedrest, no lifting anything, no sex, etc. etc. so I am definitely following her orders. She didnt say anything about the size, or where it is, etc. etc... she just drew a picture and explained to me what they are, and how more then likely everything will be ok, even though she says it, it doesnt help though, worry all day now Yes she told me I do need to see my OB, and hopefully my OB will do a scan, just to see how thing are looking. I guess it is just hard, I know there is always that risk, and I just dont like the fact I am going to be bleeding, and the doc tells me not to worry...How am i not supposed to worry when I am bleeding while pregnant!/? Anyways, thank you so much ladies for the responses, all the stories do seem positive, so it does help to with the positive thinking

I had one in 2004 with DS, scared the heck out of me. I had a huge bleed at 9 weeks, diagnosed with a subcronic hermorage. It resolved itself at about 20 weeks and everything was fine. I think they are fairly common.
