Hi All! My name is Melissa and this is #4 for me.

I had an ultrasound last week to date the pregnancy and went to my OB yesterday to find out the results.

My due date is October 30th.

Apparently they found a bleed in the fetal pole where it has torn away from the wall a little bit. Subchorionic Bleed I guess is what it's called.

The Dr. says there are two outcomes. It will heal itself, or I'll lose the baby. I can't do anything about either one.

So now I wait... and I go to get another ultrasound in a few weeks to check it all out.

The good news is, the baby has a nice strong heartbeat.

Has anyone had any experience with this? The doctor was very clear that I can't do anything and that time will only tell but still I'd like to find out if anyone else has gone through this.

Welcome and congrats Melissa! I'm Jennifer, due with my 1st on Oct. 1st. I had a small subchorionic hemmorage found at 7 weeks. The doc put me on one low dose aspirin per day. At my 9 week u/s, the hemorrage was gone. I am now off of the low dose aspirin. I hope you have the same outcome.

I've never heard of it or had it, I am pregnant with my 5th.

Sorry I can't give you any advice but I will offer my thoughts and prayers that
everything heals itself and you have a healthy beautiful baby soon!

Welcome and Congrats.

I have a small SCH. It was picked up at about 8 weeks and a few days after I had been bleeding/spotting on and off for several weeks.

Risks of miscarriage are related to the size and position of the SCH. The smaller it is the better. The good news is something like 98% of them will either bleed out (which mine seems to be doing, I still have small amounts of blood every now and then) or it will be reabsorbed by 20 weeks.

I was advised to take it easy until at least 12-14 weeks, and even beyond if I am still bleeding.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the amazing siggy.

When I was pregnant with my son I was bleeding pretty bad at 6 weeks and they determined by u/s that I also had a SC bleed, they never warned me about miscarriage said that it would heal itself and it did. Take it easy and let it heal itself. Don't get negative! Thats where people going wrong!

Welcome to the board... KUP!

Hi Melissa! I remember you from the AP board. Congrats on your pregnancy! I've heard several women here and elsewhere say they had the same thing and it healed itself. I hope that's what happens in your case as well!

Last pregnancy I had one and they said they normally heal by themselves and it is nothing. I don't remember them reminding me about miscarriage (maybe they should have) I will be thinking about you and keep us updated!

Thanks to cavewoman

my doc said the same thing.. i think...

at my 6 week apt they said they found a subchronic hemmorage.. basically its like a blood clot attatched to the placenta..

my doc said well lets just play it by ear.. didnt tell me what i can do or anything..

i have another US on the 7th to see if its gone..

is that what your is like?
