So I had my first official appointment yesterday, & as he said he would, my Dr did an in-house scan. Almost as soon as he started the scan he asked whether or not I had had any bleeding, (I had, & I'd already seen him about it 3 weeks earlier.) He then said that there was a Subchorionic hemorrhage (Hematoma.)
He didn't give me a lot of information about what it was or what that would/could mean, so I've had to do my own research.
Baby was measuring 7 weeks, 2 days. So 6 days behind my period dates, & a week behind what the Dr had down initially. No major drama, as I thought it might be out by a couple of days. A week isn't quite possible. That said he isn't going to change my dates yet, because the in-house machine isn't always exact, & they will re-check them when I have my 12 week scan.
I gave me a script for Maxolon, & if that doesn't help, then I can be scripted something stronger.
So all in all a bit of an up & down appointment.

I don't know much about SCH, but the people I have known who had one they all went away on their own and baby was born healthy. I'll be praying that's the case for you

Rest! Where is the location of it? Next to the sac, placenta? I had a SCH in a past pregnancy. This time I have a pool of blood but its not near the baby so they don't seem alarmed.

Honestly I don't know? I have a pic of bubs, but I don't know where it is in relation to where baby/the placenta is. And he didn't say.

Must be frustrating that he didn't give you much info, but I think he would have if it was serious, so Isuppose it's a double-edged sword.

I had one last time and honestly forgot about it until someone mentned them this time around. Mine didn't affect anything Except that I had a little spotting at one point.

I had a small SCH and it went away on its own. From the research I did, small or medium sized SCH don't really present any risk to the baby. It's only the large ones that can be riskier, and only if they're close to the placenta. My dad is a radiologist and I talked to him about SCH, and he said that if you look hard enough, you can find one in almost EVERY pregnancy. In fact, the doctors are instructed NOT to say anything about it unless it's large or unless there's been bleeding, because otherwise it just worries the moms. SO I guess it's even more common than reported. Good luck!

I had one with my last pregnancy. They kept a close eye on it with U/S I don't recall really having any bleeding or spotting though.
