First i want to say that i was recently in your shoes. I unfortunately do not have a success story. I will say that friend of mine did. she had a healthy baby boy. I however, lost my baby girl at 21 weeks due to a Subchorionic Hematoma. I would like you to hear my story and others to hear it as well. you need to know THERE ARE OTHER TREATMENT OPTIONS BESIDES "BED REST AND PELVIC REST".
I was 6 weeks pregnant when i found out i was pregnant. I had a military insurance because i was married to a man in the military and he passed leaving me with the insurance benefits. I live in Florida so you have to have Pregnancy Medicaid in order to be seen. I applied at 6 weeks pregnant with a proof of + pregnancy. i was denied 3 times after having medicaid for about a week or less. i would make an appointment and the day before they would tell me "we are sorry but you other insurance is overriding the medicaid, we cant see you." I went through this the entire time but still managed to be seen. its a long story. lets get to the point now. On Halloween night about 7pm i started bleeding suddenly without warning. very heavy bleeding. i was out with my 7 month old son taking him trick or treating at the local mall. as i was leaving that's when the bleeding started. i called my husband to let him know what was going on as i was driving home to get my son home. i was far from any hospital but close to home. i got home and my husband had a look of complete horror in his eyes. he called 911.... the paramedics arrived and by then the bleeding had slowed alot. i was about 12 weeks pregnant. i was diagnosed with a "threatened miscarriage"... I was told to contact my OB just to let them know i had been to the ER. I did. they told me to go to a specialist. I mad an appointment and was seen and told i had a subchorionic hematoma about the size of a lemon. very devastating. i feared the worst like all of u did and asked if there was anything that could be done to treat it. they said bed rest. I came home and googled "treatment for a SCH" there are options. What i found was shocking. i asked my doctors about the blood thinners that were mentioned in the research i had done and they avoided the option. said that bed rest WAS the only option. so i did it. the bleeding has slowed to almost nothing. i was relieved. 2 weeks later i had a massive bleed again and ended up back in the ER at 19 weeks. at about 16 weeks i had the specialist do another ultrasound and found out that the SCH was smaller, about the size of a grape. after getting the ultrasound in the ERat 19 weeks, it was large again.... back to the size of a LARGE lemon. it was between the placenta and the uterine wall. i was devastated yet again. but remained hopeful. I had what seemed like a heavy period for over a month. went through 8 pads a day. when i was 21 weeks i had another ultrasound appointment but for 2 days before that i had sever diarreah and mild cramping. a week before my ulrasound at 21 weeks i felt and saw my baby girl kick. at the ultrasound they told me that the baby no longer had a heartbeat........I had to deliver her. I just recently reviewed the autopsy report done on her....the SCH was not the size of a lemon. it was the size of 4 of them......they were only seeing it at a width angle....not length. She also had Intro unterine growth ******ation. The hematoma is the cause of that and her death..... PLEASE ASK YOUR DOCTOR ABOUT OTHER TREATEMENT OPTIONS. If the SCH was seen sooner and treated more invasivley i would have given birth to a healthy baby girl a week ago.

I just had a missed abortion I guess they call even though I do not like that term being used, my baby passed away inside, Ihfound out at my 15 week check up. I had known since 6 weeks that I had a SCH. but the drs all told me not to worry, that it happens all the time. Now after having a D and E 2 weeks ago tomorrow, I am still waiting to get the results of the chromosomal testing, the Dr. said if that come back normal than they believe it was the SCH that caused me to lose my baby. I am devastated, all I want is for the hole in my heart to go away. I just feel empty. I know everyone says time will heal you, I get it, but I will never forget my baby nor the pain I felt when I seen my baby for the last ultrasound with no heartbeat.

i had a sch with my late term loss and it was because of the sch that i lost him... then i got pregnant with my youngest dd who also had a sch but made it just fine to full term with bedrest and no sex... i also had a large sch with this pregnancy... i actually passed the biggest clot and thought i lost this little one but i didnt so i have had 3 sch and only lost one baby so it is definitely possible!!

I lost our first baby at 8 wks, cause unknown.

With my second pregnancy, I had a SCH diagnosed at 8wks that lasted until about 15 weeks, and the pregnancy survived, I have a beautiful DD!

I am now pregnant with DD#2 and did not have a SCH with this pregnancy.
