Subchorionic hemorrhage/general bleeding question

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Back from a break for my wedding and mini-honeymoon and glad to see several new members. :)



Around six weeks, I was diagnosed with a subchorionic hemorrhage.  Basically from my positive pee stick until now (8w1d today), I have dealt with discharge and light flows, some red but mostly brown.  It has been unsettling but one of my midwives assured me that unless the flow drastically increases and/or is accompanied by cramping, I am probably alright.


However, on Saturday night, after my wedding (lovely timing, eh?), I passed an actual clot.  It was fresh and maybe a little larger than a quarter.



Only one clot and no sign of red blood after that night

No cramps



Mild fever on and off since then

Just an overall gloomy, this-is-over feeling

More brown stuff -- but this may be normal as before



Has anybody here passed a clot(s) and been okay?  I have an ultrasound and labs scheduled this afternoon.  Fingers and toes crossed for a heart that's still beating (and if I'm super lucky, a hematoma that's being less of a butthead).

Crossing my fingers for you too!


I also have a subchorionic hemmorhage and have been having some spotting off and on throughout the pregnancy.


I haven't passed any clots, but there's a thread in this DDC started by PrincePJ (spelling?) that says something like "I think I'm out" where she talks about passing a clot, but it turns out it was probably just a twin and she still has a strong heartbeat in there.


Please keep us posted how your appointment goes!

Thank y'all for your kind words.


M/s is especially crappy today, but I'm trying to stay calm and enjoy the quiet before wee one gets up!

Hope it goes well today!  Morning sickness, although terribly unpleasant, can be a reassuring sign.

Baby Tuna!

(They say 8w4d [LMP], I say 8w1d [O] -- not a huge difference, though)


Heartbeat was loud and clear at 174 BPM.


I actually have two hemorrhages; one is healing/clotting, and one is "active".  My midwife said that both have a 90-ish% chance of resolving on their own and to try not to worry about spotting (yeah, right!).


I know that we are not out of the woods yet, but today was a good day.  Thank you guys for the positive words this morning. stillheart.gif
