How's everyone getting on? Anyone still on bedrest and bored?

I had my first big bleed at 12 +2, at 16 weeks today and baby still doing good for now and its a boy We saw perinatology at 13+4 and the bleed was over the cervix and going up and lifting the edge of the placenta, I believe he called it marginal. The placenta is at the fundus. The bleed is upto 15cm and I'm still bleeding everyday, usually its worse when I wake up in the morning. Starting progesterone shots today and hoping they help alot

Seriously, this whole spotting during pregnancy thing is gettin' old.

I'll be 10 weeks tomorrow, bleeding on and off since I was 4 weeks. I hope that since I spotting Monday and am again today, that it means my SCH is going away. That would be really nice.

My next scan isn't until March 26th, when I'll be 12w3d, but I'm seeing my Doctor next Wednesday. Will probably request another u/s that week so I can see how things are doing.

I just want this stupid spotting to go away so I can enjoy being pregnant!

Just wondering if anyone could help me? I went for a private scan today. I had a scan a week and a half ago and the person who scanned me said I had a bleed adjacent to the gestational sac with no echoes. Ive already posted in here I was worried it was SCH.

Today, at the private scan they scan you with a big monitor right in front of you so you can see everything going on. The "bleed" is still there, but you could clearly see that there's something inside it. She couldnt say what it was but you could see white/grey inside the black area. Do you see something inside of a SCH?

She said that its either a blood clot or that it was an early twin pregnancy that I lost

An encouraging story for those of you who are anxious.

I was diagnosed with SCH at 9 weeks pregnant after 24 hours of heavy bright-red blood loss. I was admitted into hospital (I was there two days) with threatened miscarriage. The US showed a viable heartbeat and we were sent home and told we had an 85% chance of everything being OK.

The SCH showed up on the 12 week scan but they told us not to worry any further and we didn´t.

Baby girl was born 10th February, two days after her due date, a healthy 8lb 14oz.

Hey everyone - Just wanted to update that I no longer have my SCH. At my 14-week scan it was still there but much smaller. Yesterday at my 20-week scan it was gone. BUT, I did end up with a circumvallate placenta. It's likely unrelated...just another new hurdle to deal with!

Anyway, I hope that offers some hope to those of you who have a SCH. Mine was considered very large and I was on bedrest for the majority of the first trimester (diagnosed at 6+6). I really think the bedrest is what helped me get through it.

So confused...

I was diagnosed with a small SCH around 7.5 weeks. It was "1 cm" (no other dimensions given). At 8+ weeks, it was 1.7x1x 06. At 10 weeks it was 2.3x 1.9 x 0.9. I've had spotting on and off since week 5.

Today was my NT scan. I'm 12w3d. They saw "something" but weren't sure if it was my SCH, or the empty sac of the twin that didn't develop (we knew about the second sac from week 5).

If it IS the SCH, it's grown a bit...2.7x2.3x1.6. Still small, but should I worry? My OB says he's pretty sure the "thing" is not the SCH, but the vanishing twin...should I trust him? Or should I still worry?

I've been on bedrest, but am due to return to work this Friday. If my SCH HAS grown, despite bedrest, that makes me nervous to go back on full duty...on the other hand, if the OB thinks it's the vanishing twin, should I just trust him that it's safe to work???

I'm so torn....

To top it off, I may have a DVT, so they might put me on Fragmin. I am prone to clots due to a clotting disorder. *sigh*

Hi everyone. im 7 weeks pregnant and went for an early scan at 5 weeks 5 days and although they found the heartbeat which they said was a very good sign, they also found and Retrochronical hematoma of a size of 18x6x17mm. i have had some cramps but no bleeding at all. i don't know anything about this and so just want to know what i can expect. is there a threat for the baby even if i don't bleed and what happens if i don't bleed but the bleed just gets bigger in size? thanks for your answer

Hi Annagain - Don't panic. The majority of these do reabsorb or bleed out with no impact on the baby. DON'T GOOGLE IT. All you'll find are horror stories. While there CAN be complications that can cause miscarriage, the chances are in your favor. Based on the size you gave us it sounds like yours is relatively small. Mine grew quite large (bigger than the sack early on) and eventually did reabsorb. I did have a few bleeds so don't be shocked if you bleed. If it's brown blood, that's a good thing. It's old blood. If it's red blood I would contact your doctor. Were you told to go on bedrest at all? I was on bedrest for the majority of my first trimester and I truly think that's what did the trick. Just don't do any heavy lifting or strenuous activity if your doctor didn't prescribe bedrest.

Keep us posted. Try to relax as much as possible.

Thanks mama d this was found during a private scan so i called up the epu after the scan but midwife was very dismissive that they dont care unlesd i bleed and that was it. Im calling up the mw tomorrow to have the booking date confirmed so i will ask her about the rest and if they would re scan me. Otherwise i have another private scan booked for monday. Its just a bit said that nhs doesnt care unless you are in real crisis. Anyway i will try and take it easy although it will be a bit hard as have a 3 and a 17 month old and have no family around. The worst bit for me is the stressing. I only had a mmc in dec and there was a hematoma there but never bleed there either. Just the baby didnt grow as it should have and eventually stopped at the size of a 6 wk b thatut by then i was 11week. So im really worried that this is the begining of something bad again

hi everyone just a quick update. i had another scan at a different place and baby is doing great measured a few days bigger than i thought. this sonographer hasn't even mentioned the hematoma so at the end i asked if there was one and she said yes but it's very high up and i should not even worry about it as it will just disappear. i asked her to measure it and it's the same size but i noticed that it's not round any more, it looked very long and thin. she really made me feel better and maybe i can start to belive that i am pregnant and there is a baby
