I am 5 wks pregnant. My progesterone levels are low, so I'm taking Promethium until 12 weeks along. I have had 1 m/c and one normal pregnancy. I started spotting on Sunday night. Then Monday morning, I started bleeding alot, and bright red. I immediately thought I was having a miscarriage. I went in to the doctor yesterday afternoon. They did an ultrasound. They said the baby was fine, but there is a hemorrhage beside it. The doctor said that this is common in about 5% of pregnancies. She said I will likely bleed (and maybe cramp) for a few weeks. But, that is should go away on its own and the baby should be fine. I go back next Thursday for another u/s. I am just scared, but I'm trying not to worry too much. I trust my doctor, and she acted like this was nothing to worry about. has anyone else ever heard of this?
I had one. I bleed a tiny bit around 8wks. Having had to m/c I went stright to the urgent care. After an ultrasound I was told that I had a subchorionic hemorrhage. The urgent care doctor pretty much told me there was no hope for my pregnancy. I called my doctor the next day and was told that it was no big deal but to be on pelvic rest. I had a follow up u/s around 10wks. The hemorrhage was still there at that point but hadn't grown. The u/s tech said that she sees this kinda thing all the time and has yet to see a bad outcome.
I only bled once with my hemorrhage and never really had any cramping. My doctor took me off pelvic rest at 16wks since I hadn't had anymore bleeding although I chose to stay on pelvic rest until my 18w3d u/s just to make sure that the hemorrhage was gone.
I'm now 19w3d. My u/s last week showed the hemorrhage had compleatly healed on it's own.
Were you told the size of your hemorrhage? Mine was small so it wasn't a big deal to the doctor (of course I worried 24/7) As long as yours isn't very large and doesn't grow everything should be just fine. When you go in for your follow up u/s remember that hemorrhages usually take awhile to compleatly go away so don't be supprised if it's still there.
I've had 2 SCH's and went on to deliver 1 full term baby and 1 premature baby ~ don't be surprised if you bleed for a few weeks and have them stay on top of your levels....this is a good indicator of how things are going.
SCH is very common and may place you in a high risk category (if other high risk conditions are present with it) but mostly it heals on it on by the 2nd trimester.
BTW, I didn't hemmorraged with my last 2 pregnancies at 8 weeks and then at 12 weeks.
I'm 33 wks. Had a sch 6.5 cm. Bled at 16,17 and 23 weeks. I think the reason why I bled at 23 wks is because I went off pelvic rest. I had not bled in a long time but going off that kind of rest seemed to trigger things again.
Where is the sch located? The size and location of the sch has a lot to do with the outcome. mine was in the placenta which isn't the greatest place to have it but I'm doing well. 33 wks and the baby is progressing normally. I was on complete bedrest from 16 to about 20 weeks. I was on modified from 20 till 23. Complete again from 20 till 21 weeks and now I do whatever I want except sex.
The sch will can do a number of things. It can reabsorb and clear up completly, it can get bigger and cause a mc, it can stay the same throughout the entire pregnancy, it can get smaller but not dissapear completly. The risks involved in sch are pre term labor if it hasn't resolved by a certian amount of time and IUGR if the sch is in the placenta. If the placenta is damaged in anyway, this can cut a bit of flow to the baby causing some growth restriction. These are the risks but there are many many many many women who go on to have wonderful healthy babies.
Just lurking from the PAL board and thought I'd give you my update.
I too had a SCH with this pg and began spotting at 5 1/2 weeks. At about 7 weeks I had a day of bright red bleeding. Like some of the others, I was told I was m/c and there was no sac or anything in the uterus. Well, you can see that I am now almost 32 weeks pg.
I've heard that the percentage of pgs with SCH is a lot greater than 5%. My sister had a very large SCH with her pg and had massive amounts of bright red bleeding. She works for an OB and was told that she had a 50/50 chance of m/c due to the size of the hemorrage, but she went on to have a perfectly normal little girl.
I would try to stay positive. My sister said that 80% of the SCH take care of themselves. Good luck with your pg!!!
i was just told i have one two days ago, the dr said because of the size of it and because im past 10 weeks i have about a 50/50 chance, the dr siad strick bed rest for me and the bleading has became light, i see the dr in a few hours so hopfully things have improved
I just wanted to thank everyone for the support. Unfortunately, I found out yesterday that I had a m/c. They think it could''ve been a molar pregnancy. I go for a d&c on Monday. One again, thanks to all of you for the support and answers to my questions. God bless you all!
