    Hope you don't mind me copy/pasting my post from a previous thread asking a similar question. I went the total rest option

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.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm not sure how many of you are reading this thread or are even on BH anymore, but just in case, I wanted to thank you for sharing your stories.

    I think I suffered from a SCH bleed over the past few days and even though I do not know yet whether my baby survived, reading what others experienced has been so reassuring and soothing and has given me some hope.

    I was due to go in for a six week scan on Monday, and on the Friday I had a viscious little pain down low, felt something wet, checked, and sure enough there was bright red blood. I totally lost it, in a panic that I was losing my baby, but I got myself to my OB who did a scan. He saw an embryo and yolk that measured 5w6d and he said he saw a 'flicker' but it was too early to say there was a heartbeat.

    He called it threatened miscarriage and said it could go either way, and booked me back in for a scan for tomorrow (Thursday). He said nothing about a SCH, so I don't know whether one showed up at all, or whether he wasn't looking for it...

    I bled lightly for most of Friday afternoon and then it stopped. All day Saturday I had a dull ache in my uterus, but no cramping or bleeding. Saturday night though I woke up in the middle of the night with a feeling like I urgently needed to pee - I went to the toilet and blood just gushed out of me and at the end of that I passed a clot. I couldn't see any white or greyish tissue, just the clot. Then the bleeding stopped.

    This happened again a few hours later, and then a few hours after that and then it completely stopped. There was no bleeding inbetween these episodes, and no cramps, and no embryo that I could see. The bleeding pretty much stopped again for all of Sunday and I just laid down and rested.

    Monday wasn't a good day, I had one more gushing type bleed with a small clot, and then light but steady bleeding for most of the day. By late afternoon it had stopped and I haven't had anything since except a couple of tiny brown spots.

    After doing a lot of reading, it seems that this is more like a SCH than a miscarriage. I think that if I had miscarried completely, then likely I would have had cramps and the bleeding would be heavy, constant and last at least a week, if not two. That's not to say that I haven't miscarried, or could have a blighted-ovum or a partial miscarriage, but I don't think I've had a full one...

    At this point I am having a scan in the morning to see what is going on. I didn't bother having blood tests as I hate needles and I was already booked for the scan which is going to tell me one way or another. Some tiny part of me carries a little bit of hope that there is still a baby in there, measuring 6w4d tomorrow with a nice strong heartbeat, but the other part of me says to not be stupid, no baby could survive what I've just been through over the last few days, and the doctor is going to give me bad news.

    Whatever the outcome, having this thread has been important, it has kept me sane as I've gone through these big bleeds and has given me something to hold on to, even if it is an unrealistic hope.

    So thank you.

    Thanks everyone.

    I had my scan today and there is only a collapsed sac and a clot around it, so D&C booked for tomorrow. I was hoping for a positive outcome but it isn't meant to be this time.

    Aspirin should only be taken under doctors orders and should definitely not be self administered to try and treat a clot. Follow doctors advice on rest and everything else.

    Good luck x
