subchorionic hemorrhage - pain?

I just found out after a (bright red)bleeding episode at 12wks along, that I have this. I'm not sure exactly how big it is, but it hasn't grown any in a weeks time so far.
Anyways, I am having some pains now on my left side, kind of sharp. Is this normal with a subchorionic hemorrhage? Right now, I am gushing out brown with I go to the bathroom, but that's it. Nothing in my pantyliner in between bathroom breaks.

Anyways, just wondering. I hope the pain isn't the placenta tearing more away from the wall. This is so scary!

Re: subchorionic hemorrhage - pain?

I had a very large SCH at 12 weeks as well. From my experience when I was experiencing pain it meant I was over doing it. Try to really take it easy if you are spotting at all. It was not the result of the SCH getting larger though. Mine lasted forever. I just got the clear yesterday at roughly 20 weeks.

i had a sch starting at 9 weeks with this pregnancy i would call your midwife / OB but i would think the pain is a indicator that you might be doing to much

Re: subchorionic hemorrhage - pain?

I have had pain on my right side (where my bleed is) on and off since it started 4 1/2 weeks ago. For me keeping hydrated has helped with that. If you think of the SCH as a bruise it makes sense that pushing on it (the baby, the way you are laying, ect.) will make it hurt. I hope yours resolves quickly and you can get back to the joy of being pregnant and not just the worry.

Re: subchorionic hemorrhage - pain?

I had a massive SCH at 8wks and pain was my indicator of doing too much or not enough fluids. That said, I also just had a weird, "stitch in my side" type pain for a long time and now at 37.5wks, I still get it from time to time.

Re: subchorionic hemorrhage - pain?

I had a sch at 9 weeks and I didn't have any pain with it. I was put on modified bedrest until it resolved, so there was really no way for me to do too much as long as I followed my doctor's guidelines. Are you staying off your feet? I think that as long as the blood is brown, you're probably not in any immediate danger, but you need to be very careful not to do anything too physical!

I had a hemorrhage (sp) with DS3 that lasted seven months with tons of red blood. I did have that twingy pain off and on the entire time. With this one I had a massive hematoma and no pain at all, it resoved in about two weeks.

With ds5 I had a pretty bad one and it hurt. Took a really long time to resolve itself too, but it did! Take it easy mama.

OH poor mama, that's scary. I was lucky and I didn't feel any pain with mine.

Re: subchorionic hemorrhage - pain?

I had a SCH at 8 weeks, and I had pain when I first started spotting, later that evening I had a gush of blood. That day I had carried my serger into the shop to get serviced. I had an u/s before the gush of blood and the NP didn't even see the SCH at that point, but the baby was fine. The next week when I went for my next appointment the OB did an u/s and found the SCH. So, the only time I had pain was that day I had bleeding. By my 20 week u/s the SCH had resolved, and I was on pelvic rest until then. Thankfully, I didn't have anymore bleeding, and baby girl is 8 weeks old now.
