At 8w3d I experienced a massive bleed (a Saturday). Having had an early miscarriage the cycle before, I of course assumed the worst (I did not experience any bleeding during my DD's pregnancy). The bleeding eventually stopped a few hours later, but I have had constant spotting ever since. An ultrasound at my OB on that Monday confirmed a heartbeat, and a more sensitive u/s on Wednesday revealed a subchorionic hematoma/hemorrhage, or SCH. I am now 10w1d, and will not have another u/s for another 2 weeks, as I spot all day and night, not knowing how this is affecting my baby. I am making this post to communicate with others who have/or who have had an SCH so that we can share our experiences (and perhaps discuss feeling like a ticking time bomb, not knowing if it will cause the worst, just simply go away, or something in between).

I had a SCH with DD2. It began at 8 weeks. I bled a massive amount and was sure I was miscarrying, but my OB ordered me to go to the ER where they found everything was okay. I was never formally diagnosed with a SCH, but it was mentioned. The spotting continued until I was 14 weeks and then stopped and never came back.

*hugs* Ive never dealt with it personally, but a dear friend of mine did. She started bleeding a couple days after IVF so they assumed it didnt work, but it didnt and she bleed until 16 weeks. She's the proud mama of twin boy and girl now :)

I'm glad you started this thread. I have a SCH with this pregnancy and feeling like a "ticking time bomb" completely describes how I have been feeling. It was diagnosed at 7wks 4 days after some light spotting, I spotted twice after that over the next 5 days. After two losses this summer, I was sure I was going to miscarry, but I'm now 11wks 4 days and have already heard babies hb via doppler, so am hoping I'm in the clear. The ob that did my u/s said that most resolve themselves.
