Hi. I am 33 years old and 14w5d pregnant with my 5th baby. I found out I was pregnant after 6 weeks because I started passing large blood clots and had a normal period two weeks earlier. After having my first ultrasound I found out that I have SCH, I have been monitored over the 8 weeks and the clot has not changed despite the heavy bleeding I have experienced and blood clots I have passed. Several times I thought I had miscarried. And each time the heart beat is strong and the baby is hanging on. This past Monday I went in for another ultrasound after having some heavy bleeding over the weekend. It had been 2 weeks since my last ultrasound and the blood clot still was present and didn't get any smaller. However, the amniotic fluid around the baby decreased quite a bit, so I was sent to have a level 2 ultrasound. Today, I had the ultrasound but it was not a level 2 because I need to be further along for that but I did see the specialist at the office and she basically said this pregnancy probably won't make it. But after asking all of our questions she did leave us with some hope because the baby continues to grow according to my dates and the heart beat is still good. The amniotic fluid is still low which is concerning. And to add to the chaos I had 4 previous c-section and the placenta looks like it is attached to where my scar is so I have to worry about placenta acreta. I was informed that however this pregnancy goes I may lose my uterus and never be able to have another baby. I have to worry about hemorrhaging is things just rip loose. I am so scared, I have 4 boys who need me and a growing baby who I would love to meet and raise in my family. At first the specialist was saying that we need to decided whethernto end this now or see if it ends on it's own within the next 4 weeks. But I am not comfortable ending a baby who has a strong heart beat. But am I being selfish because something can happen to me and I don't want my boys not to have a mother. Anyone experience anything like this? Thanks for reading
