Re: anyone been diagnosed with a subchorionic hemmorhage?

I was not diagnosed with it, but I am sure I had one. I started to have light pink bleeding around 7 weeks, and several times the bleeding was heavy enough that I went to see my midwife. They could always find the heartbeat right away, and I had one ultrasound done by a nurse midwife (not the tech) at a different clinic which showed a very active baby. She did not check the placenta or have experience to look behind seeing the baby was alive.

I was scheduled for an appointment with a specialist at week 13. Just around six days before that appointment, I awoke in the middle of the night feeling like I needed to pee. I walked a few feet toward the bathroom door and thought I peed on myself. I cursed (I literally said WTF) and looked down and what I had thought was pee was blood. It was all over my legs, my feet, and the floor. It wasn't at all clotted blood, it was just a lot of pinkish red blood. Cups worth. I had a moment where I couldn't remember how to clean myself up or anything. I went into some weird state where I just stood in the bathroom, numb.

I was for sure I had a miscarriage. I went to my midwife and she found the heart beat. She sat down with me told me she didn't know why I was bleeding like I was, but she had a good feeling about the pregnancy and she'd be there to midwife me through it.

I continued to spot, but no more fresh bleeding. After the spotting ceased, I stopped bleeding altogether. I lived in fear it'd start again, I KNEW it would.

So that Friday I went to the specialist, and there was no explanation for any of the bleeding. It never started again, and I'm at 23 weeks now with no spotting.

I'm fairly sure I had a subchorionic hemmorhage that bled out that night of heavy bleeding and didn't return.

My midwife said she isn't sure why this is happening, but that it seems to be an increase in bleeding in pregnancy amongst women today. She had one client who bled cups worth her entire pregnancy (my midwife is a CPM at a birth center and she didn't risk her out for it, nor did this lady have any complications from it).

From what I can gather, the risk depends on placements of the SCH. Many seem to resolve by mid-20 weeks. I tried to resolve myself to the fact I was going to be bleeding my entire pregnancy just so each time it started I wouldn't freak out, but the truth is, I did freak out each time it happened. I do think though most of the time with these, they don't have awful outcomes and I'm so happy (so far) things have gotten better for me.

Thinking of you all still experiencing this <3

Re: anyone been diagnosed with a subchorionic hemmorhage?

I was diagnosed with one at 7 weeks. At first, I was only monitored with weekly ultrasounds. At 9 weeks, it grew, and I was put on pelvic rest. By 12 weeks, it was gone. I never had any bleeding/spotting, which surprised my doctor. I'm Rh negative, so I did get an extra Rhogam shot because of it.

My only advice, which is the most annoying advice to receive, is to TRY to relax! And stay far away from Google!

Re: anyone been diagnosed with a subchorionic hemmorhage?

Oh, and I think DP had an undiagnosed SCH w/ DD. She had bleeding on & off from 8-12 or 14 weeks, then a little more around 22 or so. Nobody did an u/s other than to check the baby, never looked at the placenta. When she had DD she passed a big (300mL) clot right along w/ the placenta. No further problems for DD or DP.

Re: anyone been diagnosed with a subchorionic hemmorhage?

I had a very large sch last year. It was discovered at 12 weeks when I had an ultrasound in the ER because I was sick. The sch resolved around 18 weeks but the fluid was cloudy on ultrasounds from all of the blood that was in there. Some doctors were very doom and gloom about it, others thought it would be fine. I was watched closely for premature labor. Fortunately dd was born healthy and full term.

My greatest regret about that pregnancy was that when I was told not to get attached to the baby I took it to heart. We did not discuss her, shop for her, name her, etc. It made attachment hard after birth to be honest. My thoughts are with you ladies.

Re: anyone been diagnosed with a subchorionic hemmorhage?

I had one with my fourth baby that was discovered at a 7 week ultrasound. It was small and stable. Didn't have any bleeding or other issues. Had another ultrasound at 20 weeks and it had resolved. No bed rest or pelvic rest either. Bigger ones can for sure be scary, but I think in general if its small and stable it isn't worth freaking out about too much.

Re: anyone been diagnosed with a subchorionic hemmorhage?

I had two, diagnosed around 6wks into pg, and bled a fair amount (light-mild period bleeding) for almost4 weeks straight. Freaked me right out at the start. Then it freaked me out more when the bleeding stopped (I had obviously gotten used to it!). I don't think mine were evident at my next ultrasound - but that would have been around 20 wks. I did have to take it easy, but I was a vomiting mess & had lots of cramping around my abdomen because of that.

Hope everything turns out well for you & your babe, OP.

Re: anyone been diagnosed with a subchorionic hemmorhage?

Thank you to all you ladies who have shared advice, information, and personal experiences. It really helps to hear all sides of it, from the good to the bad. I know it doesn't help to worry about all the potential what'if's, but I'm the kind of person who likes to have as much information as possible. Although, I admit it, sometimes too much information is maybe not the best thing! ;-)

Keeping all of you with SCH's in my thoughts, and hoping for positive outcomes and no complications for all of us!

My next ultrasound is in 2 weeks...keeping my fingers crossed that mine has resolved itself and is gone! Will update when I find out...in the meantime, everyone else please keep us updated on how you and your babies are doing :-)
