Hi Lockzie, It is good to hear good news from you. We had our anatomy scan yesterday and our little girl was perfect, all the measurements were on track and she was all over the place. The only concern the Doctor had was that they noticed some blood in her bowels. She thought maybe the baby swallowed some blood from the SCH. She did mention this could be a soft marker for DS or CF. Since we did our NT scan and it was perfect and all the bone measurements are great, she was not worried about DS. We did a blood test yesterday to rule out CF or any infections the baby might have. So we are hopping and praying it is just blood from the SCH or worst a minor infection that can be cured with antibiotics.
These little ones of ours are sure sent to try us!!
NewDad39 - I hope everything is is clear with the blood results, how long do you have to wait for the results? I wonder what it is like to have a straight forward precnancy!!! Will keep checking for an update from you xx
Goodluckbear - So pleased to hear your scan was good and that your hematoma is insignificant........ that is fab news. I am sure there will be no sign of it by your next scan xx
mommyoftwo84 - Thank you for your good wishes, I hope your hematona has gone by your next scan xx
Hi, I have a large SCH, at 8 weeks I started bleeding, it was so heavy I had to stay in hospital the docotors said I was having a mc but a heartbeat was still there the following day, I am 10w 6 days now the hematoma keeps changing in size but the doctor has said that due to blood movement and uterine shape changes it will seem to change in size.
Hi Lockzie and Goodluckbear.. We are hopping the blood is from the SCH for sure. We are still waiting on the blood tests to come back. We might not know till Monday or Tuesday since it is almost the weekend.
The thing is the DR who told us the news was the same DR who said my wife might miscarry because of the SCH earlier. The minutes she walked into the door, I knew she is gonna say something is not right. I call her DR Doom .
So the wait is on for now until the blood work comes back. I am hopeful it is something minor and it will go like the SCH went bah bye . I will keep you all updated for sure
veev, sorry you had to deal with this. I know it is nerve wrecking for sure. If you read my posts, loczie and Goodluckbear, you should have a good idea of what we went/going through. I would start reading with post 189 or so. Most important thing, is to listen to your DR, take it easy, do not lift anything heavey, stay away from vaginal sex, tampans, and drink lots and lots and lots of water and rest as much as you can. Good luck
Veev - it is very worrying as you have no control over it at all and a mother wants to protect her baby no matter what so you will find it hard not to worry as long as the SCH is there.
Best thing to do would be write down a list of things you want to know and ask your Dr as many questions as you can and get as much advice from him/her as possible
I've read this thread from the beginning and all of the posts are really interesting i have definitely learnt alot from them, some women bleed for months and months bright red and go on to have healthy full term babies but some dont bleed much at all and lose the baby and vise versa, It just seems like its a waiting game to see what happens.
I know lots of women on here have gone on to have healthy babies and lots of those women went on a pretty strict bed rest whilst the SCH was still around.
I think bed rest has definitely helped with my bleeding and i notice if i am very active one day im likely to bleed the next so just try keep off your feet and relax if you can.
I hope things get better for you, keep us updated x x x
