Went in for my 5w4d US today and OB found a subchorionic hemorrhage. She said it’s small, but I don’t know the exact dimensions. I have had no spotting at all, which I read can happen frequently. I go for repeat US in about 10 days.
Anybody else ever been diagnosed with a SCH? Anybody have any stories to share?
Thanks a bunch!

I was diagnosed with one around 12 weeks, and it cleared on its own by the time I had my sonogram at 18 weeks. I had no spotting, and wouldn’t have even seen it on the ultrasound except for the fact that the tech pointed it out. You *can* bleed with these and still be perfectly fine.
Mine was small, too, and apparently, your body, most of the time, just absorbs the small amount of blood. My OB said he had seen women with these that were much much bigger than the one I had, and they all ended up fine.
I am sure you will, too!

I had a large one with my second DD. I would bleed every few days, it would taper off and then bleed again-taper off. They explained it like a scab in the uterus. My bleedining lasted for about 6 weeeks (from 6 weeks to 12 weeks), I had pretty frequent ultrasounds, but it did resolve on its own and my DD 2 is now a perfect 4 year old.

I was diagnosed with a SCH at ~6 weeks. I never had any bleeding or spotting and it resolved on its own by my 12 week ultrasound. My son is now four months old. 🙂

@maglove: I had one at 11 weeks. Up until then I had no spotting or anything, then one day I peed and it was bright red blood. I freaked out. My doctor sent me for an US and they found the SCH. The doctor wasn’t too concerned, but said to stop exercising and sex. I had an US a few weeks later and the SCH had absorbed and I was able to go back to normal activities- haven’t had an issue since!
