I had my first OB appointment scheduled for 12/31/12.
Well at work on 12/27/12 i had severe bleeding (like enough to soak through my underwear and yoga pants).
So i went to the ER immediately.
They did blood work and a ultrasound.
The ultrasound didnt show a baby but had a sac. My hormone levels matched the size of the sac so the doctor said things were matching up perfectly. But he said there is a large amount of blood in my uterus and a very large blood clot.
He didnt go into alot of details but he put me on strict bed rest until i had my appointment with my doctor.
I went in for my OB appointment and she did an ultrasound. There were 2 round what looked like sacs. One now had a baby in it with a tiny heartbeat. The other didnt. She said shes not ruling out twins but shes pretty sure its a very large blood clot. This thing was like 5 times bigger than the visual baby. I have to go back next monday for another ultrasound.
Has anyone had this issue? Its really scary.
Im on strict bed rest and everything.
This is baby #3 for me but my other pregnancies were perfect with no issues.
How far along are you? I am 20 weeks now, and I also had sever bleeding from what is a suspected SCH (subchorionic Hematoma) Mine started at about 16 weeks. and lasted on and off until about 18 or 19 weeks. I was told to take it easy, but baby was growing and developing perfectly. Hopefully all this means for you is to take it easy and have a few more appointments. They seems to be a lot more common than I ever thought and although that puts us in the lovely high risk category, many women have this during pregnancy with no long term adverse results
