    Default Subchorionic hematoma

    I had a bleed on Friday and my FTS today and found out I have a Subchorionic hematoma.

    I did the stupidest thing and googled it. Came up with all these ladies having late MCs from it

    I was feeling ok today and even my obs midwife fobbed me off today after my concerns.

    I'm now really frightened something will happen...

    Default Subchorionic hematoma

    Oh massive hugs!! I had a placental abruption with my first (he survived, born at 31 weeks) then had a synchronic hematoma diagnosed around 8 weeks after bleeding. Obviously I freaked but they were completely unrelated and I safely delivered my second at 34 weeks (I do have a cruddy cervix!). Hope all goes well for you and stay away from google!

    I had same and was really paranoid too and delayed telling everyone I was pregnant because of it. I was fobbed off and told its quite common. All was good and I had a full term bub.

    Oh google is such a frenemy when you are pregnant! I had one too at my 6 weeks scan. By 12 weeks it had been reabsorbed. I now have a healthy, unsleepy, 9 month old.
    I believe it is an issue if it is between the placenta and the uterine wall.

    Default Subchorionic hematoma

    Thanks girls.

    I don't know why I do it to myself

    I have some pain too which freaks me out.

    I've read aspirin can help absorb it but not sure about what to do, I don't want to speak to my obs middies again as they just think it's nothing and I don't! Maybe I should head to my GP???

    I'm currently 12 weeks and it was still pretty big. To to girls that said it was reabsorbed, did no blood come out? Xx

    Just don't take anything until you've spoken to them they are there for things like this just ask if you can do anything to help it ..my cousin had a big SH and by 14 weeks it was gone just follow their guidelines and you'll both be fine she is currently in labour with her baby hehe

    And no she had no bleeding it shrank and was reabsorbed she was diagnosed purely cause she had pain that the docs wanted to investigate thinking it might be ectopic .. They found bubs was prefect but the SH was there

    Default Subchorionic hematoma

    I had a large bleed from a subchorionic haematoma at 13 weeks. Only 1 week after my perfect 12 week scan. I was terrified.

    I had terrible pain followed by 2 large bleeding episodes within a 5 hour period, followed by a few days of spotting and cramping. I went to a&e, had a scan and there was an active little bub on the screen. I did a lot of doctor google too. It consumed allllll of my time. My haematoma covered 50% of the placenta.

    I went for a private follow up scan a few days later where it had shrunk but not enough to give anyone real confidence. By 16 weeks it was gone. The ob who saw me told me to forget it ever happened!!! I had no further episodes and delivered a beautiful healthy boy at 41 weeks. After I delivered my midwife told me that it was actually a pretty big haematoma, but there was no evidence whatsoever in the placenta.

    I am pretty sure it's fairly common but rarely diagnosed because they can disappear, shrink and be reabsorbed just a suddenly as they appear.

    I hope that what I have said allows you a bit of peace of mind. For what it's worth, and whether it made any difference whatsoever, I did NOTHING for weeks. I let everyone slave over me. Didn't hesitate to accept help.

    Default Subchorionic hematoma

    Hey MummaJez

    With my DS I had a subchorionic heamatoma. Started bleeding at 6 weeks and it continued daily until 12 weeks. My obs was very positive, said it happens all the time and most of the time is totally fine. My SH bled out/reabsorbed by my scan at 12 +6 and I now have a happy healthy 2 year old boy

    Try not to google. You'll do nothing but drive yourself mad xxxx
