I have read about this. SCH only occur in 1% of pregnancies, so it's pretty rare.

The size of the hematoma and location increases the risk of miscarraige. The mother's age at the time of pregnancy increases the risk of miscarraige. The location of the hemotoma increases the risk of miscarraige, and the age of the pregnancy increases the risk of miscarraige. Increasing size of hematoma increases the risk of misscarraige. The hemotoma can lift the placenta from the unterine wall, which is why it's such a huge risk. You can read more about it here.

I am very surprised your doctor seems so ... unworried about your condition. I am not trying to scare you, but everything I am reading seems that an increasing hematoma is not a good sign. Hopefully, bed rest will help this time around.
