It's on one side. The view I had was of the profile of the baby and it ran down the length of his body behind him. It looked like a long strip of SCH (blood) between the layers but it wasn't the SCH. The actual SCH was a bubble and they said it had been pushed out since my last u/s and would hopefully absorb or bleed.
She had to draw me a picture of the amnion and chorion situation in her office because I didn't understand during the u/s.
Thank you for all the well wishes. Such a helpless feeling to have.
So I googled a little bit more, and it seems like the separations that are associated with bad outcomes are normally on a least three sides. Also in an article on membrane separation after fetal surgery, it said this:
"CMS is a condition characterized by separation of the chorion and amnion usually following traumatic entry into the amniotic cavity. The incidence of CMS diagnosed by prenatal ultrasound has been reported as ranging from 1:187 to 1:4333.3,4,5 In these otherwise normal pregnancies, it is considered a benign finding. Historically, the incidence rises to 10% following amniocentesis2 and 12.5% following fetal surgery.1 Adverse sequelae are more common when the diagnosis is made in these two instances."
So, I don't think on its own it is necessarily something bad.
I had a SCH with my last pregnancy and have a placental tear with this one (I think its also considered SCH). Do you know if yours has gotten smaller since your last appointment? Are they doing a follow up u/s soon?
I am so sorry that you have to deal with all of that at once. I don't know anything about any of those situations, but I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers until you can come back and update us with AWESOME news!!

Thanks for looking that up. I woke up super depressed today. I think it boils down to me being afraid of another freak thing happening. With that other baby I did the 3 weeks bed rest, I had positive thoughts, I just knew everything would be ok. And it wasn't.
