Hopeitissoon- For some reason my dr told me to get off the baby aspirin that I was on before I was diagnosed with the SCH. Please let me know what your dr says about that.
JM - Sorry to hear about your SCH. How big is yours? Did they put you on bed rest?
Update: I went to the my peri appointment yesterday and only saw the nurse. I didn't think she was going to do an ultrasound but she did. My SCH has gotten even smaller. The bad news is she think she found another one that is grey on the screen which means it is healing. I had just saw my fertility dr on Friday and he didn't mention anything about the second one. He has a way better ultrasound machine then she does. Also she said that she doesn't know for sure that is it a SCH she is just guessing. I see my fertility dr again on Wed and I'm gonna bring the ultrasound pics she gave me and ask him to check it out. I was told I might have to stay on bed rest for five weeks (the rest of my first trimester). Don't think my boss is gonna be happy bout it. I am concerned about the multiple ultrasounds I've had to have. Hope it doesn't harm my baby.
Jame- My Doctor said he didn't think that the Aspirin would be of benefit. He has referred me to an ob/gyn for further care! I will ask the ob/gyn about it as well?? That sounds like good news that the SCH is shrinking and even if there is a second that it looks like it's healing as well!!!!!!!!!! My Doctor has put me on "reduced Physical Activity" for my first trimester too!! 5 1/2 more weeks! I had a lot of guilt at first too, but then I had so many colleagues and friends say that right now the most important thing in your life is you and your baby!!! Do EVERYTHING to take care of what is most important!
jm-sr - I know it's super scary! Were you advised to stay on bed rest?? Good luck to you!!
Rafferty- How's it going? Are you managing to rest? I can only imagine that it is so difficult with a 2 year old!
AFM- Went for Ultrasound yesterday. The first SCH is still there and the tech found another small one. I'm scared but trying to stay positive. On "relax" rest for first trimester.
Hopeitisoon - So are you taking off work for the next 5 1/2 weeks then? I have 4 1/2 weeks more to go. From how it's looking I will be off work that whole time. What sizes are your SCHs? Where are they located? It's crazy how a new one can form so quickly. I had one and now have too also. This is so frustrating!
hey dan o im so glad it seems everything is healing well x
hope you others are coping ok with bedrest, iv been on moderated bed rest and went 9 days with no bleeding, iv had slight spotting today and my scan today has shown two huge SCH, one underneath the sac measuring approx 6x4x2 and one behind the sac approx 5x3x1. my baby only measures 2cm so im really worried, she said all we can do is hope at this point.
im still too worried to get excited at all about this pregnancy
Bumski - how big is your baby supposed to be now? Are you seeing a high risk OBGYN. Don't give up hope! I have two SCH now. One is almost resolved and the other is big 4 cm. The one that is almost resolved used to be around 4 cm as well. I'm really frustrated and confused. I see the high risk OBGYN for the first time next Wed.
Bumski and Jam- i have two large SCH as well! Crazy i thought it was so uncommon to have 2 but here we are. I'm not certain where mine are. I can see them on my ultrasound pic but I'm not sure where they are relative to the placenta. One is apparently right above the cervix so the doc says expect to bleed any day. Makes me feel like a ticking time bomb!
Bedrest is going so so. My mom has been here helping with my DD but it has been hard to let her take over...just hard when I'm used to doing things a certain way. But i did get a fee good stretches with my feet up.
Jame- Yes, I've been taken off of work for the next 5 1/2 weeks but not just because of the SCHs. I have been having severe cramping where I can hardly stand and it is excruciating to sit??? I also have cysts on my ovaries and small fibroids in my uterus. The SCHs are only small, less than 1cm! So I'm hopeful! I just don't understand all of this pain??!! I haven't had any bleeding either for about a week now!!!
Rafferty- I'm happy to hear your mom is there to help you, even if it is difficult to give her the control!
Dan-0 wow!! Keep going, girl!! Looks like this isn't affecting your baby at all!!! Good luck!!!
