I found out at 8 weeks that i had a SCH. I never had any bleeding or reason to think something was wrong. I went for my first ultrasound at 7 1/2 weeks. The tech was acting really strange and would not let me see my baby. As she was finishing I told her I wanted to see my baby and she told me it was hard to see cause its so early. I told her I know its small but it has a heartbeat and I want to see it. she showed me briefly and I saw the heart fluttering and she moved it away. I had such an uneasy feeling because of her reaction and went into the doctor 5 days later for my first appointment and found out about the sch. My Doctor told me I could be miscarrying but said there is no proof that bed rest will make any difference all I could do is pray. So I did take it easy and went in for a follow up 3 weeks later where I found out there was no heartbeat and I saw my baby on the ultrasound. I had a d&c the next day because my body never recognized my baby had died. I passed more placenta after d&c and had to have a second d&c two weeks later. Now it has been a month since I found out my baby did not make it and I am still bleeding and have a hcg level of 70. I ham having such a hard time with this. I am blessed to have 3 healthy children already but still I don't know how to get over losing my baby. It doesn't help that my body wont heal and my heart wont heal until I can get rid of this constant reminder. Everyone says it happens because the fetus wasn't right or healthy, but with the sch, does that just mean it was a healthy baby but the blood clot kept it from growing? I am sorry to anyone else going through this. It is such a scary situation to sit and wait to see if your baby is going to be ok. I hope and pray anyone reading this who has this problem has a healthy pregnancy and baby.
