weightwatchers152 :  I wanted to chime in on this because i was just diagnosed with a SCH 2 days ago after a massive gush of blood.  I will tell you that my baby is still doing just fine and the doctor told me if they survive all that initially they do ok.  Don’t be surprised if you spot some but if it’s not bright red or gushing you are fine .

Congrats on your pregnancy and a healthy heartbeat! Sorry you are dealing with a SCH. I had one during my first trimester that caused a few gushes of blood and near constant spotting from week five through week twelve. It was scary, but it did resolve itself and I am now 29 weeks pregnant. I hope that yours resolves itself quickly and that you have a happy and uneventful remainder of your pregnancy.

weightwatchers152 :  It is SO nervewracking to have bleeding during pregnancy, and I can only imagine it’s even worse since you went through so much with the IVF. I had a SCH too, mine was 6cmx4cm at 10 weeks, basically as large as the baby. I had two episodes of heavy bleeding and several weeks of spotting, but that resolved by about 16 weeks, and I just had my 20 week US with no apparent issues.

My OB said that SCH does not increase the risk of miscarriage above the regular risk that everyone has. I did notice that my bleeding was worse when I pushed myself too hard physically. My OB said no intercourse while I was bleeding, but I put myself on pelvic rest until the spotting had stopped for over a week, just for my own peace of mind.

I hope everything continues on healthy for you! I always get worried before appointments too…I think that’s just part of it.
