Birth mom to M (7), O (5), & C (2).
It resolved itself by 14 weeks, and everything turned out fine!!! I'm hoping you have the same luck!!!!!!
I know how relieved you feel! They never found a cause for my bleeding either. And it did happen again a few weeks later (and the second time was worse) so try not to worry if it happens again. Easier said than done I know. Bleeding can actually be a variation of normal in pregnancy for some women.
i too had a subchrionic haemarrohage (however it's spelt) I had heavy bleeding at 12 weeks for four whole weeks until 16 weeks, I used to stand up and blood poured out, and when I did a poo it was poured out too...........
bleeding eventually stopped after four weeks and now I have a lovely two year old who is healthy and happy
keep us posted
I also had a subchorionic Hematoma. The bleeding started at 6 weeks and lasted until about 20 weeks. There was just so much blood and cramping it is almost unbelievable that a baby could survive it BUT they do Like a pp said it is just a "gushing" of blood. Thats the only word that describes it accurately. It would happen when I sneezed,went to the bathroom, coughed, rolled over, pretty much anything. Eventually around 20 weeks it stopped bleeding out but remained until delivery. Very scary but many happy endings.
I have a big question for those of you who have already delivered: Did the hematoma hinder your birth in any way? Did any of you have a homebirth with no problems from the hematoma?
Best of luck to you & I'm sure you'll be able to have your natural birth as long as there's nothing else going on like placenta previa.
I bled bright red at 12 weeks with my 3rd. I was sure I was miscarrying and went in for an u/s and the baby was moving all over. The bleeding came and went until 20 weeks or so. The doc said it wasn't a subchor. hem. but they weren't sure what it was.
He was born at 37w1d (almost 7 lbs) and his placenta looked much older. My older boys both went past my EDD and I've always guessed that whatever caused the bleeding aged the placenta and I went into labor when it was done and he needed to come. Oddly, my other boys both had breathing issues and my 37 weeker was perfectly healthy.
