So the ultrasound yielded mixed results. The fetus is still there, there's still a heartbeat; however, I have a subchorionic hematoma. The prognosis is very mixed in this case. I have to rest and simply wait it out. I will bleed some more most likely. Ugh! I wish there was a clear answer, but there isn't. On top of it, I have to "relax", which is like telling a monkey "don't climb trees". *Sigh*

Melly - so glad baby is still there but so sorry for the stressful diagnosis. Can you put your feet up for a few days? Possibly tell your in laws you are sick and not to come?! Or is that impossible?

Just think relaxing is the best you can do at this time. Watch a boxset or something. Make DH do all the housework & cooking.

Hugs to you hun xxx

Melly- so happy baby is OK!!! Sorry for the hematoma and the extra worry but I am so relieved for you the baby is well. I agree with jazz bird, can you relax a few days take it easy and rest? Will telling your in laws be helpful or more stressful? I have seen other women on the first tri boards with the same thing and all turned out OK. I know its scary. Hugs!!!

Melly2--I've heard of that but don't know what it is (will google after this post). It sucks to be told there is anything awry, even if there's a chance for a positive outcome. I'm sorry you have to go through this. But as the others said, try to concentrate on your needs right now. If you don't want to share your pregnancy news with your inlaws right now you could always fib a little. Say you sprained your ankle and have to lie on the couch, or you're under the weather. Hey, I'd do it! I'll be thinking of you. Let us know how things progress.

I was quite moody yesterday and went to my bedroom and vegged out. I told the in-laws I was busy with work and couldn't join them at the restaurant for dinner. I just didn't want to deal with anyone...especially my mother-in-law (though she has good intentions). We have NOT told them anything, nor do we plan to. I felt in better spirits today after I came to terms with accepting that this pregnancy may be a loss. We actually went out to the lake and lounged on the boat for awhile. However, I started bleeding again while on the boat. Luckily I had a pad on, because bleeding out can occur at any point for the next several weeks (maybe longer). Now, I'm just taking an easy, but still doing stuff, just not overdoing it. I don't have cramps, but I am bleeding slightly again. I think (I hope) the hematoma is bleeding out; just don't take the baby with it.

It sounds as if the in-law visit went better than imagined. If they thought you were aloof you can always explain at a later date when you do share pregnancy news. I can well understand you not sharing it with them now. It sounds like you are expecting the worst, hoping for the best. It's a strategy that has worked well for me in the past. I am thinking of you and hoping your baby stays put. Be gentle with yourself.

One thing I can verify, subchorionic hematoma will test a person's mental strength! You feel like a ticking time bomb. There's nothing to fix it, nothing you can really do, except rest. You have to wait a week or two for your next ultrasound and pray that it is getting smaller. That's it. I had some bleeding on Saturday with more cramping, but it has went away. I have not had a bleed since Saturday except for brown spotting yesterday, so I'm hoping that it is old blood. This put a whole damper on my pregnancy and it's hard to be excited anymore; I'm just filled with worry and looming dread.

Melly, could the brown blood indeed be old blood and be the tail end of this this turmoil? I really don't know much about the condition but I hope you get to enjoy this time without this dreadful inconvenience. I'm so sorry you have to go through this.

I'm praying this gets resolved and healed soon so you can go back to being happy and excited for what's to come
