Does that mean its not directly under the placenta? I haven't had any bleeding or spotting, not sure if that's good or not.
I have no idea... also, the shape and position of the SCH can change too. With my first pregnancy, I only had a tiny bit of spotting with my SCH and it just kind of went away. From what I understand, the ones found in early pregnancy have a good chance of just reabsorbing on their own. The more advanced ultrasound machines get, the better they are at spotting SCHs, and they're finding a lot of women have them and they're a common cause of spotting during the first trimester.
Will they be doing another US to check on it? You should ask them then. Depending on their machine, they might be able to tell you if it's actively bleeding or a clot of old blood too.
