ok ladies I am not finding much info on this when I try to research it so I shall now post and see if anyone else has been through it! I went for my second untrasound yesterday at 11 weeks 6 days and she starts measuring one spot over and over and comparing to notes from a sonogram done at 6 weeks 6 days and I speak to the doctor when she is finished who then says I need to be on bed rest due to a subchronic hematoma where the placenta has started to pull away and it has gotten bigger in 5 weeks and if ir continues to get bigger I will have a mc!!!! And input would be appreciated good or bad
i had a small detachment at 8 weeks but they scanned again at 9 weeks and found nothing, it had fixed itself. all i did was rest as much as i could. so get those feet up and do bugger all for a while, and hopefully it will right itself. good luck xx
Yup, I experienced SCH with Olivia from 5 to 15 weeks, I bled almost continuously and passed a number of clots. I would definitely recommend lots and lots of rest, and drin loads of water. Most clots will either re-absorb or will bleed away. Luckily, everything turned out fine for us and typically by 20 weeks, most people will find the sch disappears. There is a SCH support group in the lounge section. I would definitely advise staying away from google
I had what doctor called a "blood clot near the placenta" at 10 weeks with a small episode of bleeding...they never called it an SCH and they did not put me on bed rest, but from my research that's what I think it must have been. They didn't tell me I might MC, although from my research that seemed like a possibility depending on if it got bigger. I've not had bleeding since so I hope and pray it's resolved and gone. She said most of the time they "bleed out" and resolve themselves, so I'm hoping that's what happened. Mine was like 1.68 cm (I think) at the time. It seems a lot of the risk depends on how big they are, so I don't know if they told you that info or not. As I said, I wasn't on bedrest, and it seems the research is mixed as to whether it helps or not, but it also seems like SCH's are fairly common and many times turn out fine. I hope that's the case for you!
There was a great big SCH thread I saw all the time a few weeks ago--maybe that will help you.
