Hi ladies, I finally met my midwife yesterday and asked her a million questions. She didnt know the answers to any of them so has referred me to a specialist.
The specialist has said they will see me 13th feb, a couple weeks after my anomaly scan to discuss what is happening and possibly scan me again depending on how the hematoma is behaving on 27th jan!
I feel like I'm finally getting somewhere x
I am new to this forum, hope everyone is doing good. I am 14w 6d pregnant I am married and have a beautiful little 4yr girl! But sunday (Dec. 29) I started cramping, but not anything very painful, and then about 20 min later started bleeding. I compared it to a light period for me b/c I have very heavy periods. So of course I freaked out and went straight to the ER. They tested for everything and gave me fluids, and I got an ultrasound that showed my little darling just a kicking and moving with a heartbeat of 157! Praise the Lord! But they had no ideal why I was bleeding so they sent me the next day to get my HCG levels checked to make sure they were up to were they should be, we again Thank God they were perfect! So I went to the Dr. and they went to get the heartbeat with there little doplar thing and only could pick up my heartbeat, so again I FREAKED OUT! They of course was like "honey don't panic." Really. They didn't want me to panic? whatever. Anyways they did another ultrasound and PRAISE JESUS there she was just as healthy and moving again with a heartbeat of 164! The DR. came in and said everything looks fine, BUT I have a pretty good sized blood clot (subchronic hematoma) and my body was doing what it was suppose to, recanizing that it was a foreign thing for a healthy preg so it was tryin to kick it out, but it could cause the placenta to detach, but everything looked fine. I am so worried still tho. It really helps to hear success stories. I go back in 2 weeks for another ultrasound and my dr. says we may not even find it then so please send a pray up for me I would appreciate it! Also I bleed Sunday and not Monday but started back this morning (Tuesday) is that normal?
Hey sweetcheeks, I have read that people often bleed out so try not to worry, fingers crossed!
So quick update: I found both heartbeats about 4 days ago and can tell they are much faster, around 180bpm! Anyway I am 12 weeks today and had my scan yesterday and both looked fab and growing well, one is a day behind the other but I think that's fine. They said the sch wasn't seen!!!!! so this time I really hope it has buggered off. I still have lots of pains but think it might be another uti.
Welcome sweetcheeks, yes I've heard it is normal to bleed on and off with a sch. Hopefully it is the clot bleeding out so it will get smaller fingers crossed!
That's great northern! Glad babies are growing well and I hope the clot is really gone.
I've continued to have pains but they have eased slightly so I'm hoping that's a good sign. Gotta wait til 27th jan to find out what is happening. Still hearing the heartbeat on the Doppler so that's reassuring. Me, my son and husband have had the norovirus the last 2 days so I'm worried of becoming dehydrated, drinking as much water as possible but just one sip wouldn't stay down! Feeling slightly better today though so have managed to drink more. Hope you all had a great Christmas! x
Hi girls- I would like to join. I went in to my ob today for cramps (no bleeding yet) and they found SCH on us. My doctor told me pelvic rest, no lifting over 15 lbs, and take it easy. I'm a teacher so I'm off til the 6th so I can take it easy for a week. Not lifting my 4-year-old DS will be hard though. Just praying it goes away on its own...my next scan is the 25th.
I got a call from the ER I was in sunday and they told me that radiation report came back and it should I had a placenta previa (marginal) so I called my dr to see if they got it too and they told me that they did the ultra sound themselves yesterday and all that showed was the hemorage so idk I just go back in 2 weeks for another ultrasound they just told me to rest and drink lots of water. Its just really upsetting to hear more bad news 2 days later.
Sweetcheeks - I feel for you hun, take it as easy as possible for the next 2 weeks and keep positive! Fingers crossed all will be ok.
Heather - did they say how big your SCH was? Great news you've not bled, hopefully it will stay that way & it will resolve itself without any stress!
Frizz - rubbish you're feeling so sick, but good that you're getting reassurance from the Doppler. 27th....eek that seems like a while to wait for your next appointment, I hope the time goes quick!
Northern - fab news your sch seems to have gone, lets hope it stays that way!!! Fingers x'd you don't have an UTI, but even if you do at least it's easily treatable, keep knocking back the water hun!
Update from me, not much really other than my brown spotting / discharge has completely gone over these past couple of weeks (yay!!!), and I came off the Progesterone injections on the 28th Dec (bigger YAY, the injection sites at the top of my bum cheeks were AGONY after 6 weeks of injections!!!). All good so far....... Next scan is due the week commencing 13th Jan (I still need to book it), and this will be the full anatomy anomaly (called morphology here) scan so fingers crossed that shows my 2nd SCH totally gone and a healthy little chap wriggling around!!
Happy New Year to you all, 2014 is going to be an exciting one for us all!
