Subchorionic hematoma experiences?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I posted this elsewhere but thought I would try here too. Oh and I apologize for any TMI moments in the post.

 

On Tuesday I had a gush of blood around 2. I went to the ER and they only saw the sac on the u/s, which would be expected as I was 5w3d. They did blood tests, etc, and couldn't find anything else that could have caused the bleeding. My hCg levels were also normal (somewhere in the 7 thousand range). All the told me was to go home, stay off my feet and come back on Friday to test my levels again and said I had a "threatened miscarriage". Well, by the time I left the hospital about four hours later there was very minimal dark red spotting and by the next day there was only brown spotting when I wiped and it's just decreased from there to almost nothing. I have had no cramping and no blood clots at all. I hate this "limbo" I am in right now. From everything I have read online this seems like it could be a subchorionic hematoma. Would they have seen it on the u/s or could they have missed it? Unfortunately my midwife wont see me yet so I have to go to an ER appointed OB tomorrow. I'm not sure if they will give me another ultrasound.

 

This is my second pregnancy and I never experienced any bleeding with my first at all. I am so confused about this. I was expecting to start to have a miscarriage or have the bleeding continue but it basically has just stopped. 

 

Does anyone have any insight? I would really appreciate it... The minutes are dragging by!!

I thought I would post an update for anyone who may come across this thread in the future and wonder what they have. I do have a subchorionic hematoma and so far the prospects look good as long as it continues to get smaller. The bleeding has stopped and I am looking at natural ways to help the SCH go away.Vitamin K has been shown to help by a lot of woman but through foods and not an actual supplement. I'm going to continue to do all I can.

I hope you are doing ok! I had a SCH with my pregnancy at 7 weeks and was scared to death, but my follow up ultrasound at 9 weeks showed it had completely diminished. I found online that 93% of them go away on their own with no further complications, so try not to worry to much. smile.gif

Thanks for the input! Any reassurance is awesome especially since I'm only 6 weeks. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's clotting or gone by my next ultrasound.
