Subchorionic Hematoma

Postby Fairy Wings » Tue Apr 28, 2015 1:01 pm

Has anyone ever had a subchorionic hematoma? I was just diagnosed with one at my 8 week 2 day ultrasound and my OB said its a small hematoma but does increase the chance of miscarriage slightly. She didn't seem worried, but I am a bit on edge since I found out. I feel like I'm waiting for something to go wrong and I want to get out of that mindset. I have never had any bleeding with this pregnancy but she said I could have bleeding at any moment and not to be alarmed. What do you ladies think?

Yes I had one with first son. I actually bled out red blood for a day or two. It resolved itself though. Try to do as little physical activity as possible outside of the norm. Stay hydrated and put feet up when you can. You should be fine though, seems common lately.

Ashtonsmom, Thank you for sharing your story. I'm so glad to hear everything had a happy ending in your case. It gives me hope that I can still have a healthy pregnancy. I'm just going to stop googling it and just take care of myself the best that I can and anything else is out of my hands really.

I had this but like you small and mine was discovered at six weeks...no bleed though.

An acquaintance had bleeding for weeks and she lost baby but I think that is when it can be more concerning. Bleeding off an on or not at all is better then bleeding heavy so I wouldn't worry unless it becomes a major heavy bleed. This individual was going through pads and never could trust baby was going to stick; she even had trouble getting a positive and when she did her numbers weren't rising like they needed.

If doctor was really concerned they would say to you like they did to me "take it easy, so if this baby doesn't make it you won't blame yourself, but it's questionable if baby will make it"

Thanks OCT.4me, it helps a lot to hear that she would have told me if she was really concerned about it. I have been a lot calmed the last couple days. I stopped obsessing and more importantly stopped googling. I'm just trying to enjoy being pregnant. :D

How is everything fairy? radiographer said they could see some hemmoraging on my us today which I think is an interchangeable term with haematoma? Have fairly notable cramping and light bleeding /spotting but the blood is red. Fetal heartbeat was okay but can't shake the feeling bean is not a sticky. Waiting for betas to be taken again. So stressful

Yes I had one but didn't know about it until I gushed blood at 14 weeks (subchorionic heamorage) I was rushed to hospital and passed a clot the size of a satsuma. A scan revealed the bleed was away from the placenta and baby was fine, that baby is now a healthy one year old so try not to worry... it's amazing what babies can survive in there. I was told to just take it easy for a week or two. It was a stressful time though so I understand where you're coming from.

Unfortunately in my case the hematoma ended in a miscarriage and at 7w3d no evidence of a heartbeat was found along with decreased levels of HCG.

I'm sorry to hear this!!! I really think it is based on where the hematoma is placed and how much it effects placenta early on!

I hope you get your rainbow baby soon, sorry again for your loss!

Mantis, I'm so sorry I haven't seen this until now. I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope you have a rainbow baby very soon. :hugs:

I have a follow up ultrasound tomorrow and I will be 10 weeks 2 days. I'm more nervous this time then I was for my first two because I have no idea what to expect. I'm hoping for good news. :fingers crossed:

Thanks Pinkpuma, that is very reassuring. I will ask how close it is to the placenta tomorrow. I have heard of women having very serious bleeding thinking they are having a miscarriage and everything is fine with the baby so it seems to depend on where the clot is. I haven't had any bleeding yet so hopefully it is resolving? I'm trying my best not to worry and I've been doing pretty good but of course the day before the ultrasound is the toughest.

Fairywings: Really hope it's good news, let us know it went. The scans are so stressful, especially the first few minutes where the sonographer doesn't speak! The fact you've had no bleeding is a good sign.

Mantis: I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. It's devastating to hear the words 'I'm really sorry there's no heartbeat'. You think you'll never get over it. Take courage in the fact that it's unlikely to happen in your next pregnancy (if you decide to carry on TTC at some point) My last pregnancy had the haematoma but this one is perfectly attached.... who knows what causes these things but one thing is for sure, every pregnancy is different.

Thanks puma. I truly hope it's just one of those things. GP wants us to wait three cycles as it's post d and c but I'm asking for a second opinion from the gynaecologist. Can't shake the feeling there is a reason I got that bleed and it will happen again and I will loose another baby
