Hi Ladies,

I had a bleed at 12+6,wasnt huge but enough to soak my pants, was bright red. After that initial bleed I just had brown when I wiped and light brown stringy discharge for a day and nothing since. I had a scan at 13+1 and baby was fine. I had to ask the sonographer is she could see anything, and she said 'there's a small bleed area there, it's tiny, I wouldn't worry' she did quick measurements and it was 3cm by 1cm. She didn't even write it on the scan report. I wasn't told to bed rest, or pelvic rest but obv I am really concerned after reading some stories online.
I had a bleed with my son around the same time and from memory it was larger and I wasn't put on bed rest with him and it resolved by my 20 week scan.
I don't have a scan until end of June now, how do I know if it's going or getting bigger?

My discharge is back to normal but should I expect another bleed?

I'm sure all will be fine, it doesn't sound that big.

I havent updated here for ages either, hope everyone is doing well Good luck at all the appointments coming up too!

My last update was at 16 weeks with a near 15cm bleed area, marginal over cervix and lifting placenta edge. Now I'm 24+2 and still pregnant! 12 weeks of solid bedrest and the bleed is down to 7cm at 22 weeks at perinatology and back to check on it tomorrow as well as growth scan. I've been bleeding less, only spotting the last couple weeks. Done 8 weeks on progesterone shots, had steroids for his lungs bang on 23 weeks and even though we've had one episode of preterm labour, terbutaline shot was able to stop it I cant believe got here and neither can any of our doctors, between the sheer size of the bleed, my cervix shortening and my history of 4 preemies!

Thinking of everyone going through the worry of this

Emotional day


So we had our ultrasound this morning. We weren't able to find out the sex of the baby. Baby is weighing in at 9 oz. (baby is 19w1d) and has a good strong heartbeat. All organs seen look good and we got a pic of it's hand spread out.

Finally have a measurement on the sch which looks to be behind my placenta at approx 5cm by 1cm. Doc said it looks like there may be another clot above my cervix.

The bad news is that at some point along with my bleeding I've been loosing amniotic fluid. There isn't much left around the baby. Since we don't know when it was lost we don't know how much lung development the baby has. The other main concern is the pressure of the uterus cutting off the flow from the umbilical.

Will be doing a week of antibiotics and having weekly hb checks. If baby can hold on till 24 wks we have to decide if we take it then or try to wait to 26. The situation isn't hopeless, but the odds are definitely against us. Even if baby makes it that far and survives the chances of it not having problems of some sort are not good.

We are going to take things one day/week at time and we aren't giving up on our little fighter. It has fought so hard to stay here and is so big and strong that we will do everything we can to help it out.

My question is that we have to decide if we want to do the first two days of antibiotics in the hospital as IV or just do all 7 days orally. Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks.

have no experience of this hun but just wanted to send you loads of hugs, seems you are going through such a lot. you obviously have a very determined little one in there and the babys weight seems good too, baby will just pile it on over the next few weeks too which is great and atleast they are preparing baby the best way possible incase of early arrival which will help a lot.
hoping baby hangs on in there for a good while longer and gets bigger and stronger before it decides to meet mummy and daddy, keep us updated on how your doing xxx

Hi everyone.
I woke up yesterday (12w5d) to a huge gush of blood. Having lost my first LO I was terrified it was happening again. I rushed to the ER, by then there was only some brown spotting, and had multiple tests done and ultrasounds. Baby is doing great, I saw it kick, wave, roll over, and even saw the heartbeat.
I have a SCH but they did not tell be exactly where it is or how big, and I also have a 7cm benign fibroid on the outside at the top of my uterus.
I have been put on bed rest but I haven't heard about an other scans or anything. Pretty much just "wait and see" which annoys me.

Hi girls, i was dx with a 'small' SCH at 6w4d. I just had very light spotting and 1 tiny blood clot the size of an appleseed. But that was enough to warrant my baby a death sentence, I was told to 'go home an wait to miscarry.' Even if my SCH is small, since I'm so early in my pregnancy, it's the same size as my gestational sac. I don't know where my SCH is, but report says it's adjacent to the sac (is that good or bad?)

hi. i was told i had a sch "area of bleed" adjacent to the gestational sac at 6+6 the bleed area looked as big as the sac with things starting off so small. I didnt personally experienxe any bleeding but it could be seen at 6+6 8+2 9+6 but was gone at 13+2 i think it stayed roughly the same size until it went, just changed shape a bit. i assume my body reabsorbed it.

i know most women go on to have normal healthy pregnancies after this

does it say how big the area measured in your notes? i could dig mine out and look up the measurments of the bleed area

Hi SisterRose, thanks for answering, i'm really freaking out with this. On my report, it says 20x8x16ml, the unit ml was a puzzle, hence i asked my gp. He said, he doesn't know as well, but thought it's a typo, should be mm. He said it's probably mm. Didn't say much except, "this is nature's way of screening the unfit and weak."

I havent had any bleeding for 48 hours, is this a good thing? Shouldn't I be passing out the blood?

Also, I have horrible nausea, which I don't know whether because of hcg or SCH related. My last hcg couny is almost 60000 which was textbook for 6-7 weeks. I tried doing exhaustive research if SCH do worsen nausea cause I just feel so tired all the time, slept more than 14 hours last night.
