So I had an ultrasound at about 4 weeks, because I was bleeding and cramping. No baby found.

I had another ultrasound a week later, because of heavy bleeding, my my numbers were still doubling. Still no baby Was told it was probably a blighted ovum.

I had yet another at 6w2d and saw the heartbeat! However, also a SCH, which was probably what was causing all the bleeding.

I went for my fourth today and was measuring right on track at 8w 2d!! I am so happy. The little heart was ticking away like crazy Sooo cute! Buuuut, the SCH was still there unfortunately and hadn't shrunk at all My OB says if I'm not spotting anymore (I'm not) then I'm in no immediate danger and to just take it easy and hope for the best. If it doesn't shrink then it can cause problems down the line like premature rupture of the membranes, but as of right now everything looked great.

Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of SCH? I have googled it, but honestly there is too much information and it is frightening!

My beautiful siggy was made by *bokkechick*

I am happy your 'blighted ovum' turned into a healthy baby too!! Early scans SUCK sometimes!!! Hope everything else is ok too.

With my first pregnancy, I had a bleeding hematoma, not heavily, but still (the baby's "house" was not fully weld). Doc put me to rest for 3 weeks in bed with progesterone suppositories. After 3 weeks , it was gone.
This time we have another small hematoma, it's not near the sack, but it's there and it bugs me to know things are not perfect. I got suppositories again, but no bed rest, since doc said it's "nothing".

So, the SCH can be fixed, yes! I wish you all the best !

With Kenny I had a SCH as well, spotting for a goodly while and unfortunately he was born 7 weeks early from PROM. But he turned six a month back so it worked out well.

I was told relaxed activity, plenty of water and pelvic rest (no nookie) until after twelve weeks. I was also told I will be prone towards having one again so when we found out about this pregnancy we started the routine. Currently taking progesterone in the morning and evening and of course no nookie

Congrats on a healthy bean!

I had some early spotting with my second DS and he had a small SCH right below the gestational sac. It went away by the 12 week u/s, though. I was told only pelvic rest (i.e, no sex...boo) for the first tri, but was cleared to continue running, working out, and doing all my other normal activities. Everything turned out fine! He came as scheduled on his c-section date, 3 days before his EDD, big and healthy!
