I had some cramping (fairly heavy cramping) today and I got worried. I called my new dr (who I see for the first time on 2/18) and they said I could come in for an us. I did and we saw baby (first on abdominal us and then on vaginal). The us tech pointed out this weird area outside of the sac and said it was a collection of blood that most likely happened when the baby implanted and it bled. I had never heard of this. She said I could spot because of it or it could just dissolve on it's own. She said it's common and nothing to worry about. I didn't see a dr. They measured the heartbeat. Took pics of the baby and my uterus and ovaries and measured and that's it. Now I am worried. Have you guys heard of blood around the sac? Anyone have experience with this and it not being something horrible? Thank you

I have heard of it, I think subchorionic hematoma?
I have known some women with them, and they go on just fine. It doesn't even raise the risk level of your pregnancy.
I do believe that it can cause some spotting, just want to throw that out there so you don't get too upset if you see some!

Crazy enough to try all over again for a second together baby! Hoping for a much less wild ride this time!

I never knew until that moment how badly it could hurt to lose something you never really had. - Missed Miscarriage at 10 weeks - 3/26/13

Yes. Subchioronic hematoma. I had that with Marsi. It was detected right about this time in her pregnancy and then caused a scary bleed when it resolved itself at 11 weeks. If you bleed, get another ultrasound for peace, but know my 2 year old is just fine and I had that with her.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

How scary, but I think that is what it's called, hematoma. Everyone I've heard having them said they resolved themselves after a few weeks. Keep in touch with your OB for peace of mind.

I have also heard of this. It can cause bleeding but every lady I have known who had it has their sweet babies so other than causing stress, I don't think it is much of an issue.

Yep I had a small one that caused spotting for several weeks. It was a little nerve-wracking but didn't hurt my little Kody at all. I just took it easy during that time (even though the Doc said I didn't need to change my activities) and everything turned out fine. Our DDC even had a woman who had a HUGE subchorionic hematoma and her baby was born fine too. It was the biggest one her doctor had ever seen. She had a huge bleed, had to get transfused, etc. and yet still, baby was ok. Don't go googling though, because you'll just scare yourself!

Yes don't go looking it up - when I was diagnosed with SCH in the early weeks (went in because of spotting) and I looked it up it freaked me out. But my doctor just said to take it easy until my next appointment (which was 2 weeks away) and basically said no sex for those weeks and that they'd check it again to see if it was shrinking or not. It resolved itself and I'm now 31 weeks (tomorrow).

I am so sorry, Danielle That is so scary. I have definitely heard of it though, and by the number of ladies here that are saying they've been through it as well, I am thinking that you're little one and you are going to be just fine. It is just another bump in the road! Try to stay relaxed and just breathe I'll be thinking of you and praying for you that this resolves itself quickly. It sounds like if and when it does resolve itself, there can be even more blood. So if that happens, remember to try not to panic.

I'm sure everything will be just fine! It does sound like a SCH. I have not had one that I know of but I know plenty of women that have and everything ended up being just fine.
