due June 16 & had bleeding today

post #1 of 8

This is my fourth pregnancy, no previous miscarriages. Had a fair amount of bright red bleeding today and a big clot so went in to get checked. Numbers look good and had an u/s and saw a heartbeat! He called it a clot that may or may not absorb back into my body. Anyone with experience with this and did you miscarry or were things fine?

If you saw a heartbeat, I'd say there's a chance that everything will be OK. My friend had her "period" for the first couple months of pregnancy. Maybe you passed a twin?  Hang in there. hug2.gif

I looked at his report and it is a subchorionic hematoma. I have been googling and it sounds very common but mine is fairly large. We just have to wait and see.

OK, yeah. Things could turn out fine with that I've read. So, hopefully!

Glad everything is fine.  I had several episodes of bleeding with my first two babies.  I only had the first episode diagnosed...subchorionic hemorrhage.  The ER nurses were acting like I had miscarried and it was such a relief to see the heartbeat.  It was nerve wracking each time, but I came to expect these episodes by my third baby.  I think I only had spotting with my third and fourth and haven't had anything this time.

I've had a subchorionic bleed with all my babies. This is my fifth. Last pregnancy I bled every day from 5 to 11 weeks and ended up with a healthy baby. This time it's less often but the bleeding has been more more intense when it does happen. It's scary and a bummer but things have always worked out for me so far. :)

thanks for the reply! I'm so happy to hear of other people being fine with having this. I'm seeing my midwives next week so I'm hopeful they will have a plan on wether to check this out again or just let it go. We are moving to a new city so finding new doctors/etc.

I had an SCH with my youngest son - it was terrifying, but harmless. The bright side was extra ultraounds - loved seeing my peanut wiggling around in there! When my bleed was active, I was on temporary bedrest - never for more than a week at a time, though. Strict pelvic rest throughout much of that pregnancy, though. (I also had some preterm labor issues - unrelated to the SCH) - so the bed/pelvic rest may have had more to do with that.
