    cc is a measure (cubic centimeters) and your result equates roughly to 1.2ml. cc=ml

    I am 8 weeks pregnant & was diagnosed with subchorionic haemorrhage about 1 week ago after bleeding since 51/2 weeks. I have two healthy boys but have miscarried twice, the most recent being this january so am very nervous it may happen again. My bleeding has not been on and off for 3 weeks, the most recent being today. It is comforting to know that im not the only person & that this can still result in a healthy baby. My next scan is next week as need to have scans every two weeks.

    hi rossik, sry to hear about ur losses and congradz on the pregnancy, i know its hard but try to get as much rest as possible..i got 2 young girls 19 months and 8 months but i live with my mum so she helps out wen she can..i was diagnosed at 6weeks and ive neva had any bleeding, not sure if the bed rest had anything to do with it but im one of the luky ones that never had that..im 18 weeks now and all has been going great..my last scan was at 14 weeks and baby was measuring 5 days ahead so all is going well..i have my next scan this tuesday the 25th and i cant wait to see how much my lil man has grown..ive got a doppler and listen to the heartbeat every day for reassurance but heamatoma/heamorrage is very common during pregnancy and the majority of the time they reabsorb before 20 weeks and sometimes they stay longer, but as long as they are not interfering with the growth of the baby then it doesnt matter how big it is..at my 14week scan i had a few of them and altogether they measured almost 11cm, so thats a pretty big clot..if u have any questions or need any advice feel free to ask...goood luk and i hope all goes well, ohh and one more thing drink as much water as u can, ive been told that drinking lots of water can help reabsorb the clot.

    Default Still bleeding!!!!


    Hi,
    I am 19+3 and have been told I have a subcorionic hemotoma. I had my inital bleed at 15+6 which was heavy and bright red. Since then I have been bleeding everyday. Some more than others and its brown (old) with a little red (new). Everything I can find online is for women that have had this start heaps earlier. Anyone out there with a 2nd trimester one?

    I had u/s yesterday and they said its now 7cm. I am assuming this is a pretty big one! They didnt tell me how big it was when I had u/s 2 weeks ago but to my untrained eye it did look a bit smaller!!

    Anyone in a similar situation now or in the past that can give me an idea on how bad this is!!!!! I cant get in to the doc for another 2 weeks!!!!!!

    Default Update

    Unfortunately i had to have a D & C yesterday as they couldnt find bubs heartbeat last week. The subchorionic hematoma had corrected itself but the baby had died - they are not sure if this is related or not. It is called a missed abortion as my body hadnt recognised that the babys death & my body was carrying on with the pregnancy as per usual. The hospital sonographer did say if i hadnt had gone for a scan due to the hematoma i would have found out in my 12 week scan, which i think we have been harder to deal with as you kinda think your pregnancy is safer after this point. Hope all is ok with everyone else. My prayers are with you all.

    Rossi K -I am so sorry for your loss.

    Loz - hugs hun. I know how scary it is. I haven't had one in second trimester, but I'm sure there are plenty of people who have. If they were worried about it, you'd be seeing someone sooner.
    I know there's not alot that I can say to make you feel at ease, but I'll be thinking of you. I hope that the haematoma disappears soon. Let us know how you get on.

    Thanks! It is bloody stressful. I have managed to change my app to this Friday which is better than waiting until next week!!!!! I just cant wait to see a doc and have this explained to me properly!

    Default 16 weeks 4 days and counting

    Hi all, I am 29, and pregnant with #6 (yes #6) I miscarried a 16 week baby in march,(and have lost 3 other angel babies) so was so thrilled to be pregnant again. Then at 11 weeks, had a huge bleed, the ultrasound showed a healthy baby and a small hematoma. (which they said would 'probably go away') I continued to bleed, on and off, sometimes very heavy. Had another ultrasound 2 weeks ago, now I have 2 hematomas , 1 small, but the other is huge. I am still bleeding, now 16 weeks 4 days. The frustrating is no one can tell me anything. Not the gp, or the ultrasound people, or the hospital. No one has advised bed rest or told me what I should be doing, It is just so horrible not knowing anything!

    Hi All

    Have been reading through this thread and feel a little reassured. I have had a terrible time with this pregnancy (my second pregnancy, I have a 2 yo son after a totally natural healthy pregnancy).

    I am 12 weeks this week. I had bleeding between 6 and 7 weeks, brown, red and some clotting. I had a scan and was told I had identicle twins with two healthy heartbeats, but that the pg was high risk because of a shared placenta and amniotic sac. I had another scan at 8 weeks to find out one of my twins had died. The other one was doing great though.

    Heavy bright red bleeding started again at 11 weeks. I was sent for a scan straightaway and told I had a small subchrionic haematoma. I had another scan 2 days later after bleeding bright red for 2 days and the Dr said the clot had gone and everything looked good, baby is doing great. The bleeding has stopped.

    I am just freaking out now hoping that nothing awful happens from here. With the loss of one of my twins and all the stress of trying for 18mths to get pregnant with this time (an ectopic, DH getting epididymitis then 2 failed IVF cycles) I dont know if I can cope with much more. I have my 12 week scan on Friday and I am hoping it wont show up anything nasty. I just have a bad feeling in general about this pregnancy.

    Sorry for my long post but it has been a long 2 months.

    Default New here - SCH after ivf

    Hi, I am new to this message board. I have had a rough year. I had one natural m/c; an iui cycle that resulted in nothing; a second iui cycle that resulted in a chem. preg.; and currently an ivf cycle that I am preg. from, but now have SCH. I don't know how much more I can take.

    I am currently 6w and very worried. I started bleeding on Wed. night last week, after DH went to work. There was so much blood, I thought it was another m/c. I had an u/s the next day and it was SCH. The RE put me on bedrest and told me to drink a lot of water. Other then that, there is nothing to do - I was told - but to wait and see. I hate that let's wait and see approach. My next appt. is thurs. this week.

    Any advice on how to keep your sanity while on bedrest? I am just so worried about another m/c. I have no living children (just the m/c) and I feel like this is my last chance to have a baby of my own.

    Thanks for listening,
    Natasha

    Hi there

    I can only share my recent experience which has turned out well so far. As you can see from my post I bled between 6 and 7 weeks, then at 12 weeks. But I had my 12 week scan and the perinatalist said everything looks fine now and that the SCH had bled out and hopefully I wont have any more problems. Baby is growing great and all looks good. I might go on that holiday to Bali afterall.

    I didn't really do the bedrest thing, just took it a bit easy.

    It is so hard Iknow and frightening and isolating but I took some comfort in the thought that there is really nothing I could do.

    I hope it all turns out well for you. If you have a obstetrician just keep asking to be scanned to reassure you all is OK with bubs. Mine got a bit annoyed with me but I dont care - it helped get me through.

    Take care

    Hi Jess, Thanks for the encouragement. I see from your signature that you are due in April and did ivf. We are not that far apart. I am due in May and also did ivf. I am glad the SCH bled out and all is fine now. That is reassuring news.
    Take care,
    Natasha

    Hi Natasha and Jess

    I also have this condition from an IVF pregnancy (our 10th attempt). I started spotting at 7.5 weeks but they were not at all concerned about this. I had a bleed at 9.5 weeks, a bigger bleed at 11 weeks and my biggest bleed yet last night. US shows bub is fine, bouncing around and normal growth etc but there is a clot approx 4 cm at the edge of the placenta I'm so terrified. I want this baby so much. I know there is nothing I can do but hope and rest. Nice to know others are feeling the same thing.

    Default Me too....

    Hi. After reading this fourm thread for the past couple of months, Ive finally decided to reply with my own story...Mainly because Ive found it to be the best, most reassuring information I have recieved about this! Im currently 17weeks.

    I had a HUGE haemorrhage at 11 weeks. Was certain of miscarriage- but was a bright red, clearish liquid that gushed, then kind of stopped just as quickly. ER told me to go home (was at night) and even though cervix was closed, to expect to miscarry overnight- they thought Id lost too much blood. But morning came, had ultrasound and bubba was fine!

    Same thing happened exactly one week later- at school (Im a teacher) Although this time it was a bit brownish to begin, but became bright red. Doctor thought my cervix was opening- suggesting imminent miscarriage - my husband resigned ourselves again with loss-but again Ultrasound showed bubs was fine! This time a very small haemorrhage and slight separation in chorionic and amionic membranes to allow for path of blood from edge of placenta to cervix.

    Same thing happened exactly one week later- but was less and more brownish- and has continued over the last 3 weeks consistently. It has begun to lessen, however, and Im feeling hopeful.
    Had another ultrasound before Obst visit last week. The membranes still show separation and slight thickening- suggesting blood still travelling out. The Obst. was completely unhelpful and unable to tell me a thing. He baulked at the fact I had done my own research into suchorionic haem. myself, telling me that an English teacher didnt have the expertise to evaluate the information

    Im heartened by reading that only about 5% of cases end in miscarriage. The larger the haemorrhage, the greater the risk. Many women on forums here and elsewhere claim that it is best for bleeding to become brownish over weeks- new bright red gushes arent a great sign, but many seem to have multiple cases and still be ok. Ultrasounds can show if bleeding is retroplacental (behind placenta)- this increases risk of miscarriage to %50 due to placental abruption- but after 24weeks the bub can usually survive if preterm labour occurs due to this.

    American docs tend to recommend bedrest, My Obst. called this old fashioned, unecessary amd supported by no evidence. Im taking a middle road- Im still working full time, but have stopped running, mowing with a pushy, yoga and helping my hubby owner build until the bleeding stops. It almost has for now. I think Ill give it another week....

    I have to have another scan at 20 weeks, so fingers crossed for everything to be clearer up!

    My GP has certainly been my best support, and has repeatedly told me to be positive and to be aware that I dont really have any control over what happens next. Our bodies are amazing and tend to do whats best for us, so trust in that and be kind to yourselves if you are experiencing similar things.
    Thanks for the posts everyone. I hope to have a success story to add in the future too

    Default Subchorionic hematoma

    Hi. I have just been diagnosed with a subchorionic hematoma at 6 weeks pregnant. I have had one masive bleed, no clots but lots of red blood. I had an ultrasound and there was my little precious beating away at 106 hbm. But I had a large hematoma of 3.5 cm long x 3 cm wide tapering to 0.5 cm. The bleeding stopped and I thought that it may be all over, but a couple of days later it started again. Not as bad as the first but still bad. I had a second u/s and bub is still beating away at 120 hbm. I am so scared I'm go to loss this baby. The doc tells me there is nothing I can do but wait and rest but i just cant sit and wait. I have another u/s in 2 weeks and it is killing me to wait. Please can someone tell me if my hematoma is a large one and what my odds are on this pregnancy going to term.
    Thankyou Sally
