Hi there! Lurking from May DDC: Where did they say the blood clot was? I have a subchorionic hematoma, which is a blood clot between the layers of the placenta. I had massive bleeding back in November and thought I was miscarrying. Turns out, there was a tiny tear in the placenta that caused a big pool of blood that burst. Scared the living !@#$ outta me. Mine was HUUUGE and for a while there, it was kinda touch and go, but I'm still preggo... baby is doing great.

Have you called your OB this morning to get in to have a more detailed ultrasound? If it is an SCH, just expect to be put on modified bed rest and pelvic rest until it either resolves itself, bleeds out, or until they say it's safe for you to resume normal activity. I've been on modified bed rest for about 6 weeks now and I get to see a perinatologist every so often so they can monitor what's going on.

PM me if that's what it is and I can direct you to some not-so-horrifying websites as opposed to what usually pops up in google searches.
