here in USA they do not recomand bed rest ....but i am trying to take it really easy anyway....

i totally agree with emma2810 i feel like we are kind of left on our own with this....the doctors have the wait and see approach ...it's so unfair...

hope everyone will have a great week end...! the weather is fabulous in San Francisco today!!!
Hi there

The approach in the UK was the same, they were like if a pregnancy is strong enough to last it will last regardless. I just couldnt deal with the thought of leaving things to chance that is why I came back home, in hope that I will help the baby.

Its really bad that there isnt much support generally for SCHs even though it is not uncommon. I find that there are a lot of girs here in Bnb that are not even told of their problems, and just by reading their posts it is obvious they have SCHs. Also there is no word of recommendations or precautions from doctors at all. It really scares me!

Anyway,on another note, the weather here was lovely this weekend, and my mum and dad took me down to the beach today with the car and had an hour or two relaxing looking at endless blue colours, it was lovely

I hope you all had lovely blood free weekends ladies XX

I had bleeding before at 11 weeks just thought was spotting so carried on as normal and i was out with my mum, dd all of a sudden felt wet looked down blood everywhere i managed to get to the toilet i was just covered. Had to get my mum to go buy me some new stuff to put on. I was put on complete bed rest but found it so hard having the 3 girls plus being at college so been carrying on as normal, been having brown spotting but few weeks ago had red blood again. Im on aspirin as have a clotting problem with my blood which sends me into pre-term labour, I get so scared at times im willing my little man to stay as long as possible. Has anyone joined the group on yahoo? xx
Ive added some information at the top of the page if anybody wants to add anymore feel free to.
I am supposed to have scans every 2 weeks my last scan was cancelled because the hospital never had my notes (i'd transferred hospitals due to bad experience), i feel they arnt taking it with much seriousness as emma said on her post im 100% this is why i had abruptions in the past as i bleed all the way through with all of my other children.
In answer to your question about the yahoo group, yes I am registered there, I dont post, just lurking reading the info. It is a fab group I highly recommend it

I hope your hospital gets their act together, sounds pretty bad that they lost the notes! X

Im a member of the yahoo group and I love it My midwife is awesome, she told me to go on modified bedrest immediately to give the baby the best chance of survival, and she does weekly u/s to keep an eye on the sch...did you know bedrest has been shown to drop the miscarriage rate from 25% to 8%?? That seems like an awesome statistic to me.
Ive also noticed alot of women talking about bleeding but their dr.s dont send them for a u/s or diagnose the sch...I shocked how often it seems to happen. Ive read stories and alot of dr.s have told women to abort and try again because of the sch...how ridiculous...and heartless!!

Hi All,

I am 10 weeks 3 days today. I went for a dating scan (private) last week as the local hospital couldn't offer me an appointment until 9 July when I will be 15 weeks. I should see a consultant then as well but I am not holding my breath.

This is a precious pregnancy as I had a m/c in 2004, had my son in 2005 and this is the first pregnancy since then. I am also 42 which is worrying me no end.

Anyway at the scan last week (FMC in London) they told me I have a retroplacental haematoma high on the left hand side of the pregnancy sac. I have not had any bleeding but they said because of where it is located than I might not. The haematoma is 39mm x 14mm which seems HUGE to me given that the baby was only measuring 31.4mm CRL. I was not told an awful lot else other than it is a risk to the pregnancy and that it might resolve itself.

I am now completely terrified as I made the mistake of trying to find out more on the net. It is basically all doom and gloom. It seems that SCH's tend to have a more favourable outcome that RPH's. It is pretty much all I can think about right now, day and night and every twinge worries me.

I saw my MW this morning for a booking-in appointment and told her about the RPH, gave her the report from the FMC and she was quite dismissive of it, it seemed to me. She did not say I should take it easy or anything else, just that I should ring her if I have a bleed or get bad cramps. She said I would not even know about the RPH if I had not had the scan last week. Yeah. Great. But I do know.

I am going for another scan at the FMC on 18 June and am hoping that the haematoma will have resolved itself but if I am totally honest with myself, I am not feeling that hopeful about things. I just wish there was a bit more reasssuring information out there.

You ladies who have been put on bedrest, are you lying down most of the time? Or resting by not doing too much. I have my 4 year old to take care of and a job to do as well. Luckily I can work from home, but is sitting at my computer "restful" or should I really be lying down when possible? Just wondering.

Thanks for your stories though. They do help a bit and this group makes me realise I am not totally on my own in this situation.

to you all

sitting down at your desk is considered resting. We dont have to be laying down unlike women with incompetent cervix's. I have a 16 mth old so Im trying to sit on the couch and read books to him,and have him bring toys to the couch so we can play together. Its not easy but its working The biggest thing my midwife said was no lifting,and absolutely no sex. Your not alone, and I hope we can share many success stories

i own a flower shop so you see it's difficult for me to be on bed rest...but i try to reduce the amount of work and lifting by 50 to 70%...it's not easy...

i have no more bleeding since last monday except brownish discharge...so taking this as a good sign...

have you notice girls but everytime i had a bleed big or not i never had cramps with them...what about you ?

Im having the opposite problems, tons of cramps that feel just like bad contractions (after having 4 kids I know what a real contraction feels like) I saw my midwife today and she is continuing the bedrest indefinately because everytime I stand up I start getting the cramps. I have my level 2 u/s tomorrow and she is having them measure my cervix because she is worried about it shortening. She has a feeling that I might end upon meds to stop preterm labor in the future.

Good luck with your scan tomorrow Jennifer, let us know how you get on! I hope that the news are good and that your cervix is not shortening! XX

When I had my massive bleeding incident I didnt experience much pain which appeared to me very weird at the time.

Its funny, I usually dont experience any pain when I am bleeding red but I get occasional AF cramps when I am bleeding brown. I assume it has to do with the old blood being stuck inside causing contractions.

I think lack of pains is a good sign, it may depend on size of hematoma and if the hematoma is active or not perhaps? who knows!
