I need some prayers- bleeding and now bedrest - Page 2

post #21 of 37
Thread Starter 
Thanks ladies.

I've been on bedrest since Friday. My bleeding today looks like it is gone as of today. So I hope it stays away. I have to be on bedrest till my next ultrasound, which is in a few weeks, then things will be reevulated. I'll keep everyone updated. It is so hard to just lay around and do nothing, especially with a child, but DH took off this week to make things easier!

Thanks for all the prayers. I need this thing to shrink and go away!!

I'm glad the bleeding has slowed, how scary that must've been. It's great DH is able to have the week off to care for you and your other child.

Not in your DDC - but I too had a subchorionic hematoma/bleed with my third babe (he is now 2 years old). I found out that they are very common, very destressing but typically resolve without any issues. Mine was also quite large - but can' remember now.

I bled at 11 weeks (found out on a routine ultrasound a day earlier that I had a subchorionic hematoma) for several days, and again at 16 weeks. I was with midwives who referred me to a placenta specialist (yes, they do exist at high risk hospitals - referrals required where I live) at 22 weeks who still saw it, was still large but said nothing would come of it. From what I was told, bedrest does nothing to assist with successful pregnancy or prevent loss (sorry). I was told that the signifant majority will resolve without any other complications.

My babe was born at 39 weeks, 8lbs. 1oz. and healthy as can be.

Good luck - I know how terrifying this is.

Not in your DDC but I wanted to post and let you know that I had that amount of bleeding in my first pregnancy. I truly have never, even since, seen that amount of blood come from my body (not even a later m/c had that amount of blood). I soaked through towels on the way to the hospital (through my clothes!). That was when I was pg with my DD, 10 years ago. It too was called a subchorionic hemorrhage.

I did bleed on and off for another month afterwards, but it got more and more brown as it went along. Sometimes I'd have a few clear days and then some light spotting. They figured it was just my body getting rid of the old blood. I just wanted to share that so that you didn't worry if you started up again.

It cleared up and I went on to have a normal pg that went past my due date and brought us a wailing, healthy little girl.

Good luck to you! I'm sure things will be fine even though it is so scary when it is happening. Enjoy the mandated rest!
