Hugs, stay positive!!!
t get to know about mine ahead of time, I was working and suddenly thought I should go to the bathroom, part way there this huge (huge) gush of blood came (and went everywhere within my pants) and of course by the time I saw it I thought the pregnancy was over (having lost a pregnancy before this one). I was 12w along, and when DH and I got to the hospital (again, assuming it was all over) they werent even concerned about the baby, just me, as I had lost a lot of blood.
I got to go home from the hospital that night to sleep, but needed to be back by 8am the next morning and they would continue to monitor me.
On the Sunday we had an ultrasound and our baby was live and well, it was beyond unbelievable! I had never heard of a subchorionic hemmorrhage before and so I definitely did a lot of reading afterward.
I hope you have been given instructions to take things super easy, don`t lift, no stairs (minimize stairs at the very least). I guess mine was probably the worst the bleed could have been, but with the best outcome (baby survived!) I am due next month, and everything has been fairly normal since.

Ditto. I thought this was a fairly common thing. I had a subchorionic hemorrhage with my second pregnancy that was reabsorbed; I never even knew about it until my 20 week ultrasound, actually.
I know you must be scared and worried and anxious right now, and I’ll keep you and your little one in my thoughts. I hope this blows over soon and you have a safe and healthy nine months from here on out!

I had an early dating ultrasound and I was told I would definitely be miscarrying. She’s 6 now! I know its hard but I think they totally overreacted.

Easier said than done, I know, but try to stay positive. I thought these were fairly common, too. At 6.5 weeks, I was told I had one and not to worry about it because most likely it would just reabsorb and go away on its own. I’m now 11 weeks and haven’t been to the doctor since, but things seem to be going fine!
Thinking good thoughts for you.

Thank you all for all your kind and supportive words. I was so sad this morning, trying to hold back tears while on the train to work. Luckily it was a busy day, and I did not have time to sit and think about it too much.
I searched online today, and like most of you mention, it doesn’t seem to be a 50/50 type thing…I don’t know why they would say such a thing to me (like I said, that one nurse who said it looked like she needed a nap and couldn’t care about being there). Oh well.
I called and had my first OB appt bumped up from Oct. 5th to Sept. 20th (next Thurs), so I’m feelling better about that. I also have to try to get another ultrasound done before that appointment, so will probbaly do that early next week. They said to give it at least a week between ultrasounds, because they want to compare the size of the hematoma.
Pray for me that all goes well, bees!

On a positive note, my HCG was measured at 38,000 yesterday (up from 18,000 on Friday), and my progesterone was 24.8.

luli29: I haven’t ever had this, but from what PP’s have said it sounds like theres a good chance your situation will turn out just fine! Some nurses just stink at their job. Dang her for making you feel even worse. Thoughts and prayers to you and the LO. 🙂

Oh my goodness, my heart dropped reading that. I’m so sorry you’re going through all this stress….I hope it turns out to be no big deal like what happened with many of the PPs. Wishing you the best!

@luli29: Oh no! I am so sad to hear about this! I will say I haven’t heard many people have this, but all of the ladies I have heard have had healthy pregnancies. They were put on bed rest… My fingers are crossed for you 🙂

I’ll be praying for you! So sorry you are having to go through all this stress 🙁

Thinking about you lady… Only three more days until your appointment!!! I hope everything is going okay!

Thanks for your concern, lady! I actually had an ultrasound today – all looked good. But I have my actual OB appt. on Thursday!
I had my follow up ultrasound today, and baby looks well! 138bpm, measuring exactly as he/she should be…and the ultrasound tech said the hematoma didn’t look like anything threatening.
I have my OB appt this Thursday, so I’ll let you know what they say 🙂
Oh, and I told my parents and sister this weekend – they’re so excited.
Also, going on day 4 of no nausea. YUSSS!
