    I'm 9+3 days pregnant. Yesterday I had some blood when I wiped. I went to the ER and they said baby was OK, but they didn't see the reason for the bleed. They gave me progesterone. Today I went to my doc and he said that it's a slightly abrupted placenta (8x3mm). He gave me even more progesterone and said I need to stay in bed. He also said that I can't fly on Wednesday (was supposed to return from Europe to Canada). I'm seeing him again on Thursday.
    I'm so worried. It's now a high-risk pregnancy and I've been reading online that it could end in miscarriage.
    Has anyone got any success stories? I'm so upset. It took us 2.5 years to get pregnant :(

    Is this due to a subchorionic haematoma (sch), if so there is a gestational complications section where people can help. X

    I found out I had a subchorionic haematoma at a routine scan, which I think is the same thing? Anyway, I never experienced any bleeding but it'd gone by the time I was 13 weeks :)

    Ive seen a lot of women on here have it, more commonly with bleeding too and everything has turned out fine.

    Hey I have it too. My doctor didn't give me anything and I put myself on bed rest. I was bleeding for 5 weeks. It just stopped after I passed some small clots. I have a scan on Tuesday but I'm really thinking about changing doctors.
