So after 2 miscarriages and 1 preg with spotting all through the 1st tri, resulting in me being a worried wreck, I have been SO proud of myself for being calm and not at all worried this time. I had a totally normal u/s at 8 weeks, and an appt with my mw on Thursday where we heard the heartbeat. Then yesterday, at exactly 11 weeks I stood up to go to work and felt a gush of liquid and a huge amount of bright red blood had soaked my clothes. Luckily my 2 yr old was at child care and dh was home sick so he was with me the whole time. I passed a few big clots and called the mw. She said since everything was fine the day before and I wasn't cramping that it was not likely a m/c. I went in to have her listen for the heartbeat and in the 5 minute car ride totally soaked through my pad/clothes and then she couldn't find the heartbeat. It was so scary. I didn't bleed that much that quickly with either of my m/c. We had an u/s and the baby looks fine. Turns out I have a small subchorionic hemorrhage.<br><br>
I've been telling myself this pregnancy that I won't worry unless I have a reason to and now, here's the reason. I think the bleeding has mostly stopped but is this likely to happen again? Someone tell me I shouldn't worry too much. Has this happened to anyone here?

Sorry, I have no experience with this. Just wanted to offer some <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"> - it must have been so scary. I hope you don't have any more cause to worry.

this happened to me with my last child who is now a happy and healthy almost 2 year old. it was nerve wrecking! and happend just after a miscarriage...so very hard to cope with. it was very similar to your experience, where i was having bleeding and went in for an ultrasound, thinking we were going to hear the worse...but there was our little bean's heart beating. they had me come back in two weeks for another ultrasound, and over those next two weeks, the bleeding lessened then stopped and everything healed itself. and the rest of the pregnancy had no problems. healthy homebirthed baby at the end of it. good luck mama! hoping it all heals and everything is fine....

Sorry you had this happen too but I'm glad to hear everything turned out fine! Pregnancy is such a crazy ride. Now that the big scare is past, I'm mad that this screwed up my calm attitude about this pregnancy. I went from feeling totally fine back to feeling cautious and unsure, though I am hopeful that all will turn out okay and I'll have a happy homebirth in November with a perfect little baby. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Yowzer. I had bleeding with DS but not soaking through a pad like you described. It went from red to black and they never found where it came from. So much crazy stuff can happen in pregnancy-birth! I'm glad everything is okay with baby.

Scary! I'm so glad everything looks fine. I had a scare in this pregnancy a couple of weeks ago, and it has taken me all that time to start to feel more relaxed/hopeful again. I hope you are able to get back to feeling calm and positive again soon.

This happened to me with DD who is now 2. I ended up bleeding off and on the whole pregnancy. It seemed just as the uterus started to heal, the scab that had formed would fall off and it would start up again. At least that is how it was explained to me. Scary, but my healthy little girl is evidence that is not dangerous to the pregnancy.
