I also have a subchorionic hematoma. I had a really big bleed at 10 weeks and thought I was losing the baby. The u/s showed a large active bleed. The next week it was even bigger, so they sent me to Maternal Fetal Medicine specialist for a level II u/s. I was never put on bed rest (doctors have mixed opinions on this and I wish mine had put me on bed rest) but I did have to stop all exercise, no lifting over 10 lbs, and was put on pelvic rest until a week of no bleeding/spotting. I bled for a month. It's been nearly a month of no spotting, so I am hopeful that I can lift restrictions. Just try to take it easy. Let others help whenever possible when it comes to lifting or strenuous activity. Keep yourself hydrated, and if you can lay on the couch do it
