    I believe my best friend had this during her second pregnancy. She was put on short term bed rest, and the issue resolved itself before her son was born. FX everything stays okay!

    FreckledFox:  I had this throughout my entire pregnancy with my second, though I believe it’s called a subchorionic hemorrhage (or bleed). The first time was very early on and I thought I was having a miscarriage.

    Several times we went to the emergency room and it was pretty crazy! It would often happen after intercourse where it looked like we had just slaughtered a small animal. Needless to say, it put a damper on our sex life.

    She was born premature 5 weeks but was healthy and we were able to take her home after only a week in the NICU. I don’t think that it was related to the bleed but I’m not certain.

    Either way, she’s very healthy, happy, and today just extremely annoying!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Actually subchronic hematoma is a common phase for it. I hear that more then hemmorhage. It also sounds better then hemmorage. 


    I havent experienced it but I have read lots of women who have and generally have no issues. Can cause some scary bleeding and pelvic rest. I certainly hope all goes well!

    A hematoma is usually the collection of blood, a hemorrhage is the actual flow/loss of blood. But I’ve heard people use the two interchangeably. In my birth board on baby center there have been a bunch of women that had SCH with totally normal pregnancies otherwise. Take it very easy and hopefully it will resolve itself asap. But aside from that, Congratulations!!!!

    I had an SCH that started very early and lasted for 8 weeks. It was scary to have all that bleeding, but it resolved itself. I am now 27 weeks with a healthy pregnancy. I have never heard of them recurring, just that the bleeding reoccurs from the same hemmorage. I know quite a few people with SCH and nobody I know has miscarried from it.

    I had this with my daughter who is now nearly five years old.  Very scary experience since I’d had a miscarriage with my first pregnancy.  However the bleeding subsided and all was well.  Huge hugs I understand how scary this is!  Hang in there and be positive!

    FreckledFox:  Keeping my fingers crossed for you that this resolves and everything progresses normally! I didn’t have this (I don’t think), though I did have some recurrent spotting during my first trimester, but there were a few other ladies in my birth month group who did, and everyone is heading into the third trimester now with healthy babies.
