They never gave me a size for how big my sch was, but if you read back through this thread, you'll see I bled A LOT!

Stay on pelvic rest and if you cramp, drink lots of water and put your feet up. It helps alleviate stress and pressure on your pelvic area. Cramps are normal. Normal in a regular pregnancy, and super normal for them to hurt and throb when you have a sch. Blood is an irritant and it hurts. I bled from 5w-17w and then it stopped. I spotted 99% of the time (brown or pink), and had 5-6 giant, dramatic bleeds. One drenched through my jeans and then when I sat at the toilet, more blood dumped out. It was horrific and we thought for sure we lost the baby. But nope, he hung on and grew well. He was born at 37.5 weeks and was over 7lbs.

Just keep going. One day at a time. It's scary, I know that. After my first bleed, they sent me home with miscarriage paperwork because it was a high possibility. I was devastated. But it all worked out.

Big

Thank you so much. I'm still so scared, I haven't had a single drop of blood and nothing I read helps me figure out if that's good or bad. I'm also not really cramping, the tiniest twinges a couple of times a day. I just know that this is a huge bleed and I'm terrified. What happened to you sounds so scary I'm so glad your son made it out ok.
I feel doomed to another miscarriage

I now have horrendous lower back pain and tightening feelings in my uterus. I feel hopeless about this pregnancy.

The size of your haematoma isn't that big, mine has changed size constantly but has been 6cmx3cmx2cm .l. It obviously seems big at this stage because the baby is so small.

Did they give you any information about where the bleed is located? Behind placenta, above sac, by cervix? If it is above your cervix, even if you do bleed it's not a disaster as it just bleeds straight out the exit.... if above/around the sac or behind placenta it could be a bit more risky at this stage but honestly, it may resolve by second trimester and cause no issues at all.

Stay calm, take it really easy and drink lots.

Are the to rescan you?

Thank you so much ferreroroche, I hope you're right and it only seems huge. How far along were you when it was 6cm?
She didn't actually tell me where it was and only showed me for a split second but I THINK it was actually up at the top. My internet research has led me to believe this is quite bad. My NHS scan got rebooked for two weeks, which is next Friday, so I booked a private scan for this Thursday. If I can make it to Thursday and baby is ok, I will be so thankful.

I was about 16 weeks. But I haemorrhaged at 12 weeks and it started as 5cmx3x2. So it grew a little over those 4 weeks. I have my 20 week scan tomorrow so will ask them to re measure it then.

That's good that NHS are rescanning you in two weeks. At least you can see howbaby is growing and how sch is looking. Whilst it's scary to have it when baby is so small, if baby continues ok, they seem to clear up well in the second trimester. I have had two sch's in two pregnancies and both started right at the end of first trimester and the first never went away but I carried to term. This one has been there 8 weeks now and at the last scan 2 weeks ago it was same size as it had been. No signs of disappearing, so I think it's here for along time. But baby is doing ok.

I found out I had SCH last week when I was 6wk 3days as I had a TINY amount of blood when I wiped so I got an early scan. She didn't say how big it was but just that it may explain the bleeding. However since then I have had 2 episodes of say half a teaspoon of red blood when I wiped. None has stained my underwear. The second episode today had a small clot in it. The strange thing is that this happened this afternoon and since then there's been no bleeding, like not even a tiny spot when I wipe.
Obviously I'm absolutely terrified that I'm having a miscarriage. Surely red blood is a bad sign no matter what??
I'm so frightened, any help would be appreciated. I have another scan at EPU tomorrow morning.

I bled so much. It was ridiculous.

Red blood is certainly scary, but when you know you have a sch or previa, bleeding can be explained pretty easily. Doesn't make it too much easier to see blood when you're pregnant, but at least there's an explanation.

They didn't tell me the size of mine, but I bleed a tremendous amount - all the way into 2nd tri.

Try and take it easy and read back through this thread. You'll see lots of people have had them, and go on to have healthy babies.

Hi ladies I had an early scan due to some bleeding and on the scan they found a little haemorrhage next to the sac very small at 1cm x 1.5cm. My question is could this be risky with it being next to the sac?

I feel so scared! Baby did have a heartbeat but I feel on edge constantly.

It Is natural to feel scared, but if you read this thread you should see that there are many examples like yours and most of them have a positive outcome in relation to the sch.

Try to take it easy right now. Do you have a follow up scan soon?
