Hi, I came to pick the brains of all you wise women!!!!<br><br>
I thought I was miscarrying yesterday and ended up choosing to get an ultrasound because it really didn't seem like I was after all (some bleeding but no clots or cramping and the bleeding stopped after I woke in the AM). The ultrasound showed a little baby with a strong little heart beat but there was also a sack of blood below the baby (baby is all contained as it should be (don't know all the correct terms of everything though) and the hemmorage is below all of this near my cervix). The tech said that these are caused when the baby implants into the uterus and can either bleed out and cause spotting, the blood can become absorbed back into the uterus, or possible cause a miscarriage.<br><br>
Do any of you have any experience with this??? If so what advice, if any would you give??? And if you have seen this has it ever resulted in a miscarriage.<br><br>
Thank you in advance for any help you can give<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I've had a couple clients with this, and both went on to have full-term healthy babies. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Our placentas are so wise - they really make up for any sort of loss quickly.

I had a subchorionic hemorrhage almost exactly like yours at 12 weeks. I bled out about 1/2 c blood and went to the ER, but babe was fine. I spotted for a week afterwards, and it was totally resolved by my 20 week ultrasound. Kaia was born healthy and fine at 40 weeks. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Thank you both so much for your replys, they help to put my mind at ease!!!! It is the same as what my midwife said also....that is is actually pretty common and will usually be reabsorbed back into the body, or bled out...but could cause a miscarriage, but so can so many other things this early in a pregnancy. She is going to staff my ultrasound pictures with the doctor in town and get back to me if they see any problems, but hopefully all will go well just as in your experiences.<br>
Thanks again for you help, I really appreciate it!!!!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
