When I had my blood tests yesterday they did take a tube that was going to specifically be tested for clotting problems, however I think this is more to do with the fact that I HAVE had DVT and clots in my lungs a few years back so am already at a higher risk. It had little/nothing to do with the bleed and clots I passed on Wednesday. I am actually hoping the results come back showing something so that they will at least look at this seriously and do something about it, rather then just saying 'its one of those things'.

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?!?
angelmarie so sorry to hear what happen to you
honestly i think not to many doctor knows or think right away about the possibility of you having a hematoma...you need to be refer to a specialist like a perinealogist so they can take a good look at you ....you need to push for this darling ...said that you are extremely stress and worried...

Just wondered have they not suggested the blood tests to you ladies or asprin? sending you all love and
My doctor mentioned aspirin but he said he didnt want to give it to me as he was scared it could have made me bleed a bit more as it is a blood thinner.

He didnt test me for blood clotting disorders though.

On another note, my mum also had bleeding in pregnancy ( 1 incident only) but end up in bed rest for the first 5 months of pregnancy.

Hm I wonder if indeed there is a hereditory (sp?) link.

Angelmarie I hope you feel better hon.

I definatelly think you should ask them to give you more details on your bleeding, a proper diagnosis. A woman doesnt just bleed for no reason, there must be a reason.

I 'd push for them to be more precise and give me more info, so I am better prepared if it happens again ( which I hope it never does).

Let us know how you get on and how the bleeding goes as well

Spotting has turned from bright red fresh blood to dark red and brown!! Bed rest is doing the trick.

Hi to all you new ladies

Im so glad the bleeding has stopped for some of you, i was having brown spotting and its now stopped so im happy .
Ive had bleeding in my 3 pregnancys so i think its just something that happens to me must be to do with my clotting problem, thats why must have placenta probs as well. I wish there was more support for us ladies who need it the most but we seem to be forgotten about.

I was wondering if any of you girls who had been diagnosed with sch have any scan pictures on which you can see the affected area? I have been searching google images so I can cross reference my pics to see if I can spot anything... if you have can you post them please?
