Hi everyone!
I am new to this forum and I am very happy that I found this support group.
Here goes my story:
I got my BFP on Dec 9th. At 5 weeks, I started spotting a little bit, so I went to mt OB and he said there was a little pool of blood close to the gestational sac and that it was not possible to know if I was going to miscarry or not. So he recommended bedrest and progesterone. 2 weeks later, at my next appointment, everything looked great on the U/S and my doctor couldn't find the hematoma anymore, so he said all was well and that I could resume normal activity.
Unfortunately, at 8+4, I had a big gush of red blood (a lot!!) after having sex (and orgasm, sorry if TMI!!).. so I panicked as you can imagine and went directly to my OB. He did an U/S and baby was fine, but he found a tear of the sac where it was attached to the uterine wall, next to one of the edges of the placenta. there was a tiny hematoma right there (of about 1 cm x 0.5 cm). He said it would probably heal on its own and recommended bedrest again..
The bleeding stopped that same day and I continued spotting for a few days after that. Then spotting stpped completely and I was hopeful that the tear and hematoma had healed.
Today, I went to my OB again, and baby was already 4 cm (11 weeks)!!! I was able to see tiny legs and arms and was very happy. The bad news were that the hematoma was still there, though still very small..he measured it and it was 9mm (didn't get the other measures). Also, my blood pressure was sky high..i hope it was high because I was VERY nervous. Anyway, more bedrest for me. Next appointment in 2 weeks
So, thanks for reading my story! I really hope everything goes fine for all of us!!!!!!!!!!!
hugs to everyone

Welcome BBelly! I have found a lot of support from these ladies. It's hard dealing with this. I'm on bed rest and my SCH is getting smaller. I hope yours goes away. Hopefully your blood pressure was high due to being nervous. When is your next appt?

I have started bleeding red blood again. I am so worried. How much of this can my baby stand? It stands to reason that if I am bleeding fresh blood again the hematoma could get bigger. I just want to cry and my dh trying to make lite of it is not helping.

I know exactly how you feel. Everytime I think the bleeding has stopped for a few hours, it then starts up again.

It's getting me really down and it's very stressful.

The way I am trying to think of it is this. My husband said to me when I was particularly depressed about it. If the bleeding is still happening, it means that it's coming out of you and not pooling in there. Which (and I could be completely wrong!), makes me think that if it's not pooling the hematoma won't get bigger because the blood is escaping. So it's a good thing actually.

That's how I'm choosing to think about it until I am told otherwise. Maybe that thought can help you?

I think I may be losing my sanity. I have my 12 scan on the 13th. It seems so long away and I am terrified something has/will go wrong. Most of my symptoms have disappeared and i have resumed semi normal activities, no heavy lifting, pushing etc but as i have only had a few days of brown discharge I am worried that the hematoma is getting bigger. I had a scan at 8+4 and hematoma was still there but baby is fine. Am i being ridiculous? I cant shift the feeling that something is wrong i just dont know it yet. I hope everyone is doing ok today.

I don't think you're being ridiculous. I think this whole situation messes with your head. It's just so not how it is supposed to be. You finally get pregnant and things seem just fine, then all of a sudden, it's turned on it's head and it's very confusing.
We are conditioned to think that bleeding in pregnancy is bad, then we have it and we are told don't worry it's fine. But in all actuality, it is very hard to not worry.

And sometimes being in your own head is the worst place to be.

Keep your chin up, and just try and stay positive. We're in this together.

Hi everyone! I am soo glad to have found this site. I went to the hospital on monday morning because I was bleeding and cramping up. Have been spotting off and on throughout but that time it was a lot heavier. Had an ultrasound at the hospital and got to see the baby's heartbeat on the screen. They said there is a small 9 mm sch but that there is no way to tell how it will effect the baby. The bleeding stopped but then lastnight I had some 'special' time with my husband and ended up bleeding quite a bit with a few clots now I am freaking out a little. This is my second pregnancy, I miscarried in 2008 but was only a few weeks along and didn't even know. This baby is all my husband and I have ever wanted and I just want things to be ok. I also have the added issue of having Fibromyalgia and am trying to ween of my pain meds. Wasn't sure if that had anything to do with the bleeding or not. Either way my next visit with the dr isn't till the 28th and 12 week ultrasound beginning of march. It's nice to be able to vent about this problem with people who actually know what I am going through. Happy and healthy thoughts to all!

hey KrisCodd!
I hope you are feeling better now. I just wanted to tell you that sex and/or orgasms are a no-no when you have a sch. I had a small one at 5 weeks that healed at 7 weeks (my OB said he could'nt see it anymore), but at 8 weeks, I started gushing bright red blood after an orgasm! So my OB did another U/S and he found a small sch (around 1cm) near my placenta. Two weeks later (at 10+4 weeks), an U/S showed that it has got a bit smaller (8-9 mm) after bedrest, lots of water, and complete pelvic rest (no sex/orgasms). So please, don't have sex...
hugs

Yeah...no sex. It's been a looooong while now and it's really starting to bother me. My poor husband and I are bracing ourselves for the prospect of no sex until the baby is born, as my doc told me this week he expects the slow bleed to continue indefinitely. So depressing. But I guess it will make it all the sweeter when we finally get to do it, haha! Or just make it really really quick!
