    Default Blood clot on 7 week ultrasound

    So I'm pretty freaked out right now being pregnant again after a mc in August.

    I had some bleeding and cramping today so went to the ER. The scan showed a fetus measuring 7 weeks 5 days with a HB of 160. It also showed a clot, outside of the sac and I don't know what that means for my pregnancy. Dr Google is freaking me out. I don't see my ob til next Tuesday. I've been tested for clotting disorders and I don't have any. Can anyone share any experiences or knowledge please?

    Was it a subchorionic haematoma?

    There would probably be multiple reasons why they might happen so I wouldn't take any individual cases as being yours. Stressing out will only make you sleep less. Either way, with one you will need to rest up until it resolves.

    Mine was because I had +ANA and my body was rejecting the pregnancies, it wasn't because of my blood clotting disorder.

    Only thing you could do is to try and get them to get full bloodwork done to see if there is anything else underlying but that is difficult if only having one mc. Did the sonographer or doctor say anything to you?

    The heartbeat sounds good. Don't google anymore!!! It's horrible. Take it easy.

    I'd also push for another ultrasound to be done in a few days to see if the bleed is getting bigger, smaller or staying the same. Also to check on the heartbeat. It's around this stage that the placenta starts to take over.

    I had a retroplacental hematoma. Basically a big clot in the placenta, but not in the sac. I had the joy of haemorrhaging throughout most of my second trimester. Bub was completely oblivious though all of my hospital trips, blood transfusions and bed rest.

    DD is now a happy, bright 15month old toddler.

    Take it easy and don't do anything strenuous until you see the OB.

    Thank you so much for your responses ladies. They didn't tell me the actual name of it just said it was a clot and I should rest. They actually did some blood tests last month for things like autoimmune issues and they all came back clear so I'm hoping that makes things look a little better. It's just such a shame because I was so happy the baby was going so well!

    I had one at around the same time. Apparently its when the baby implants. Sometimes its re-absorbed by the mothers body, sometimes it pops (especially if you do too much lifting or squatting apparently) and thats when you get some bleedng.

    I actually had a terribly big gush of red blood and thought for sure I was miscarrying.... instead I now have a beautiful 3 year old boy!!!

    Rest up and stay positive

    I had several bleeds in my last pregnancy and had to rest for many weeks, but bub was fine. Just be careful with what you do. No exercising, lifting children/objects/groceries.

    I had one too. It was picked up at 7 weeks. It was smaller by 9 weeks and completely gone by 13 weeks. Just take it easy, don't lift anything heavy, keep hydrated etc. They're more common than you think x

    I had one as well picked up at my dating scan at almost 8 weeks. By my 12 weeks US it was gone. I was warned that I may have a bit of bleeding from it but I never did.

    Also got told its very common.

    Ok these are good stories. Thank you. Does anyone know what causes them? I read that impact injures can cause them (not relevant), cocaine use (I'm not that interesting), not moving around (I have an active two year old that hates it when I sit down) etc. None of these relate to me!
