Thanks ladies for your advice, I will def be pressing for a scan to have it looked at and monitored more closely,
Re the rest, looks like its not going to be much of an issue, due to my days off in the last 2wks I've lost my job as an agency supply teaching assistant, unfortunately we're not covered by the same legalities so there is nothing I can do, no need to worry about having to go to work every day so until I know whats going on I'm putting myself on bedrest and taking it easy. I can def feel the difference already and even bending to put washing in the machine has caused me to spot this morning.
Pelvic rest is also not an issue, I've had absolutely NO interest in sex since I got my BFP so this now also means I don't have to feel guilty for telling OH no.!
Spoke to my mum this morning who's told me that both she and my grandmother also bleed quite badly though all their pregnancies, and were both on bed rest for the majority of them!! Does anyone know if theres a genetic/hyreditry (sp??) link to Sch??

I asked about a genetic cause because I had a small sch my last pregnancy also...well,the specialist asked if there were and blood clotting disorders in my family. I really dont know,but it may be worth my time to check into it.

Ive had another major bleed today
hosp did nothing butlisten to babys HB!obviously Im overjoyed that they found HB but just feel like I was rushed in and out!
Ihad a scan on the 10th June ans that showed baby doing fine,clot was well away from baby and placenta,directly above cervix,so really hoping that the bleed Ive had today is the last of the clot coming out!
praying LO is ok!
prayers and PMA!!

ps dimensions of clot on wed were;4.64 x 4.01 x 6.47cm does anyone know if thats classed as big ??? confused

emma, how you doing now? Glad they found the HB easily and fingers crossed it was the clot you mentioned and now its gone.

Had my booking in appointment and asked the MW's (there was a student one in there as well so had 2) about Sch, they both just looked at me blankly and said they'd never heard of it! Looks like I'm goig to have to push it with the OB/gyn. They did however say that if bed rest has eased my concerns and stopped the bleeding then to stick with this until I see the OB. So thats what I shall be doing. Unfortunately this leads to its own problem as due to a prev history of DVT I'm already at high risk for blood clots in my legs if I don't stay active, bed rest increases this risk again!!! Think its time to get out my sexy thrombosis stockings!

Hi honey

I've read your journal and I am so sorry you are going through such worrying time again. Very pleased you heard the hb though, just hang in there with positive thinking but put your feet up please. No housework, no work, no lifting anything. Its important that your red bleed becomes brown again.

Now, regarding measurements, I've seen the following formula on the SCH Forum in Yahoo. I am not sure how accurate that is, but it seems that all the girls there are using this to get an indication of size for their SCHs

The formula is :

Length x Height x Width in cm x 0.52= volume in > mls
  • Less than 25 is small,
  • 25-75 is medium,
  • 75-200 is > large,
  • and more than 200 is very large.

I think yours is about 62 which is considered medium. But again, I dont want to cause any of you girls worry or panic, I really dont know how accurate this formula is.

big hugs

Hi everyone

Sorry havent been around much, yesterday was really naughty went to warwick castle climbed 532 steps i used to work at the school and because im crb checked they asked me to go. I wish i hadnt now cause last night i was so ill, had bad stomach pains all night think i over did it today was constantly worrying that i was going to start bleeding again but fx i havent.
to all you new ladies sorry your going through this, it makes me laugh that even the professionals dont know what sch is if they did maybe they would give us more support. I would push for your scans i had to and ive finally found a doc who listened to me xx

Hi girls...

Dropping in after a recommendation from Fluxuspoem (thank you!)

Basically I was suffering from really bad cramps and backache last night for a few hours then I started to bleed quite heavily. Ended up at the assessment unit at 1am I started to pass clots and was in so much pain I was in tears and thought it was all over but they did a scan and baby was active and the heart was beating Cervix was also closed which was really pleasing to hear.

The doc said that he didnt really know why I was bleeding and was a little hazy on details. He told me to just rest and see what happens but hopefully the blood will turn brown over the next few days...

WHen I got home though I passed a HUGE clot - (sorry TMI) It was huge and I panicked so I 'examined it' and it was a string which was as long as a maternity pad and about just over a cm thick - really solid - tissue not just blood. Im still so worried.

The pain seems to have mostly subsided today. (fingers crossed) but I am still bleeding.

After reading this group I think my symptoms sound really similar but a sch was not mentioned at all. Do you think I should push for another scan (even though I had my nuchal scan Wednesday gone and nothing was mentioned). I mean have you got to be looking for a sch... might you miss one if you were just doing a normal dating scan?!?
