I'm almost 13 weeks pregnant and I was diagnosed 3 weeks ago with a sch. Yesterday I found out it was very large and put on a month of bed rest. The Dr said there's a 10-20% chance with the size of this bleed I will lose the baby. The internet is the devil..lol. I've googled and googled n scared myself to death. I've never had this with my previous pregnancies and one if my friends told me if this group

Newbie with SCH


Hey ladies ,

So i started with a lot of pain last Monday night with scant pale pink discharge. I went to the ED was there 5 hrs and was referred to "early pregnancy problem clinic" EPPC the next morning for a scan. Scan showed a pregnancy in uterus at 6+4 with HB. Then on Wednesday I had a moderate bleed , so back to EPPC and baby was still there with a HB. I spotted and had pains on and off up until yesterday morning . I had a very heavy red bleed it was gushing and I was terrified. So i went to the ED and thankfully I was sent to gynae very quickly. I had another scan and baby was there had grown another weeks worth measuring 7+4 and had a good HB. Then the radiographer noticed that I had a substantial SCH just above the gestational sac. It was bigger than the sac and has a lot of clots . Passed one clot last night. Today I've had brown discharge and some bloody stuff. I feel absolutely exhausted and still very tender. Was told i could still miscarry as I'd been producing fresh blood in higher quantities as the week passed. I've heard lots of reassuring stories but I'm still worried sick.

Hi Lightbright. Sorry you are here under these circumstances. It's so scary.

Did they tell you how large it was?

I have had large and moderate size sch' s in my last two pregnancies at the end of the first trimester and my first was born full term, and this one is now 25+6.

Bed rest is a good idea, it certainly seemed to help my bleeding slow quicker.

Also lots of water to drink... like loads. Keep hydrated as it will help the uterus relax.

Has your doctor prescribed progesterone? This isn't a standard response but I have had it both times and have really seen a reduction of contractions in my uterus while there was active/brown bleeding still occurring.

Sit tight, and hang in there. You will always fin d bad stories on google, but if you read this thread you will see that the vast majority of sch's do still result in a healthy baby.

There's a few of us who still hang around. My sch was over 3 years ago, but I check in here from time to time.

Hi - I'm new and looking for some support. :)


Hi,

I am not one to typically join forums or chat rooms but I've found reading past posts that this group has offered a lot of comfort.

Here's my story:

This is my second pregnancy. I miscarried last year in December at 7 weeks one day after seeing the heartbeat at the dating scan. It was truly a tragedy in my life and a huge sense of loss for me and my partner.

After 6 months of trying again we fell pregnant and we are now expecting in February 2018.

At 13+1 I woke up in the night to a gush of red blood. Naturally I panicked and we went straight to emergency assuming the worst. Fortunately we were seen quickly and an ultrasound showed us our baby was alive and well with a strong heartbeat. I have never felt such love and relief. The red blood stopped almost immediately within the hour after it happend and was followed by a small amount of brown bleeding.

Since our visit to ER we have seen our family doctor and also a radiology clinic which allowed us to get a more detailed look of our baby. We were diagnosed at that time with a "small" SCH which is directly above my cervix. A Dr. spoke to us and told us that it was not of a concern to her and that it would likely resolve itself before my 19 weeks scan on Sept. 22nd. We left feeling optimistic.

After a week of hardly any spotting (just a little brown upon wiping) I thought we were on the road to recovery. Now at 14+1 I'm not so sure...

Last night my spotting became heavier again. Although it is still brown and "watery" (no clots) it seems the healing process is going in the other direction. It seems more active at night then almost completely stops during the day. This has lasted 48 hours so far. I haven't had any cramps but I do feel some pressure on my cervix.. it almost has a light throbbing sensation. Does anyone know what that is caused by?

I have read that brown blood means "old blood" and that it could actually be a good thing that its coming out. I am just not sure what to believe as I had brown blood before I miscarried on my first pregnancy. I am extremely anxious and not sure what to expect in the coming weeks.

Today I ordered a doppler in hopes to hear the babies heart beat at home for more confidence.

I guess I'm rambling now but it just feels good to get it all out. Would love to hear some thoughts of reassurance of people that are going through or have gone through similar experiences. Amongst the worry it can feel very lonely at times.

Looking forward to any responses.

Hi and welcome.

Whilst I can't definitively guarantee that it is all fine, I can tell you that it is typical of sch's to bleed out over quite some time. Especially when over the cervix.

I have had two over my last two pregnancies at c. 12 weeks (which also occurred after a miscarriage) and with both the initial bleed stopped (in this particular pregnancy it stopped after about 3 days). But then I had a number of subsequent bleeds (usually brown) up until 18 weeks.

This time I could go 1-2 weeks in between bleeds and think all was resolving and then out of nowhere I would bleed again for a couple more days.

Each time I got thebaby checked and she was fine.

One sonographer told me it is part of the sch resolving. After the red bleed, it clots up, then either dries up and gets reabsorbed or turns back to liquid (brown) and comes out. But it's horrid to see.

I am now 29+6 weeks and haven't bled since 18 weeks but the sch was visible at my 20 weeks scan over the cervix, but was no longer visible at my 28 week scan.

I hope this helps.

Hey , my sch was diagnosed at 7+4 after an extremely heavy bright red bleed . After the red blood I had nothing for 24 ish hours then I had lots of very gunky brown discharge with stringy bits (sorry tmi!) every day until just over ten weeks. I do find I'm more panicky every time I feel wet below thinking oh no am I bleeding again. But it's just normal pregnant cm. My SCH was fairly large as well . I hope yours settles soon and/or drains out so you can have peace of mind xxx

Thank you Ferreroroche and nordicpixie83 for the reply.

I very much appreciate the support group. It is good to know that other people have gone through or are going through similar experience. From what i have read most of us will make it out as SCH graduates and end up with healthy babies when it's all said and done.

I am now going on two weeks since my initial red bleed. Spotting has been on and off since. It seems I will go 24-36 hours with nothing and then I'll have a little bit of brown spotting/staining show up. Usually it's first thing in the morning which I have also read is a common pattern.

What I am most curious about is people's opinion of bed rest and/or pelvic rest... The Doctors I've seen in Canada don't really seem worried about my condition at all. They have not referred me for additional ultrasounds (next one is scheduled for 19 weeks and I'm currently 15+2). They have not recommended any sort of pelvic or bed rest but I have read a lot of women swear by it. I have noticed that when I am pushing myself harder in the day it is usually when the spotting increases. Does anyone have more information on whether bed rest or pelvic rest has been recommended to them and/or if it's worked for them? Otherwise am I just being over cautious?

Thanks again!

Hey ,

So the sonographer in Ireland couldn't have given two hoots and told me to tell my regular dr that I was a threatened miscarriage . Unfortunately I had my big haemorrhage just as we were moving back to Scotland. I was able to put myself on bed (or at least sofa with minimal activity) rest for four weeks , it definitely lessened my cramping and I think helped my pregnancy.I still had the dogs and my daughters plus light house chores. But that was the extent of my exertion. Definitely no sex or orgasm. Now I'm 13+3 had a great scan the other day and baby looks great ! Heard it on my Doppler tonight . Was such a blessing
