Hi everyone.. just wanting some info here if anyone has any.. they saw a small one on my u/s at 6w2d.. My OB didn't hardly even address it or act like it was anything.. just put me on pelvic rest.. no sex.. ..But then I go online to look it up and all these women have all these restrictions and are on bedrest and such.. Is this a high risk situation? I am thinking of going to another OB to get another opinion but maybe I am overreacting?? I just feel like it should be monitored or something. thanks for any help ladies..

Hi, Roxy. I had a sch. I'm not a doctor but what your dr is saying is pretty much on the mark. If the sch is small and you aren't bleeding, I would say pelvic rest is the best. I would also take it kinda easy if I were you. Keep your heartrate down and don't be on your feet too much for now. Give your sch a bit of time to heal and possibly reabsorb. The degree of severity in sch depends on the location and size. In my opinion, I don't think obs get too intense with these things unless you are bleeding a lot. If your sch doesn't resolve by the second trimester, you may be considered high risk and may want to get a high risk doctor to monitor you in addition to your regular ob.


if you do need a second opinion, get one. When it comes to things like this, there is no overreacting. Your a mom and you need to do what feels right for you.


Anyway, the outcome for sch is very good. I had one at 16 weeks that was pretty bad. I had two periods of gushing blood with clots but my baby wasn't affected by it at all. Now at 23 weeks, I no longer have sch and I am off of bedrest and no longer high risk. Perhaps if my ob noticed the sch in the first trimester, I wouldnt have had those gushes because I would have done pelvic rest a lot earlier. I commend your ob for finding it early. Now you can start taking care of it so that it doesn't get to the point where you bleed like I did.

Thank you so much for replying!! That makes me feel alot better that yours has resolved itself and I'm glad you are doing great and no longer high risk.. I think I am going to another doc anyway just cuz I didn't get a warm fuzzy feeling overall from the other one.. So basically it seems that I am doing everything I can do at this point and at least I have an office job where I sit all day.. Thanks again I feel very reassured.. I am gonna try to get whatever doc I am seeing to give me another u/s before the typical 20 week u/s just to see if it got smaller or what..

Yeah, get a doctor who will keep his/her eye on it. I got a lot of ultrasounds so I was able to keep track of the sch. First one showed the sch trapped in the placenta and mine was kinda big. 6.5cm. I had placenta previa too so I had to be on bed rest which was a bummer. Had another bleed and the 2nd ultrasound showed the blood clot was gone and a tear where it used to be. Apparently it bled out. third one showed a scab on the tear so I knew it was healing and then two weeks later the fith one didn't show a blessed thing! not even preva woo hoo and I have all these ultrasound pictures on the fridge now. Now that it's gone, I don't think i'm gonna get a lot of ultrasounds anymore. boo hoo. BUT....I get to go on vacation and go swimming and um...boom shakalaka so it's all good.

There's a great group on yahoo called sch group. If you feel like you need any further info or you just want support, just go to yahoo groups, search for sch, and type a little email for acess. There are a lot of sch girls there and the majority of them are going on with healthy pregnancys.

I can understand why you are scared. Sch can be a scary thing! Really really scary because a lot of doctors don't give enough info on the subject and you cant find of lot of literature on the internet.

The group is called sch groups and you can find it by going to yahoo groups and looking for sch. Or you can scroll down a few pages in this forum and read my post "a blood clot in the placenta and placenta previa" someone replied to me with the groups link.
This group has some pretty fabulous women in it and there are many many women here. no one has lost their baby and all the gals who deliver post an update stating another sucessful sch pregnancy.

I had this also. I know how scary it can be. I wasn't allowed to do any heavy lifting not even a gallon of milk. Take it easy. Mine broke during sex and it was horrible so I wouldn't have sex if I was you. My baby was just fine. Good Luck

I was diagnosed with the same thing around 6 weeks of pregnancy (now 23 weeks) and I bleed for 5 months. I was put on pelvic rest and modified bed rest (I was bleeding heavily, like a period, and passed a large clot). They also sent me to a specialist for level II ultrasounds to make sure the hematoma did not get any bigger or was effecting my twins. My AFP came back positive, but showed nothing on the ultrasound, they think the bleeding caused a false positive. I would talk to your OB and see if they are concerned? Is the hematoma causing problems for you? Are you bleeding?
