subchorionic hemorrhage

Anyone else been diagnosed with a subchorionic hemorrhage? I had an emergency ultrasound at around 7 weeks to rule out ectopic pregnancy due to pain I was having. Luckily, the baby was found to be in the uterus and heart rate was detected, however it showed a "collection likely representing perigestational hemorrhage" (which I am told is the same as subchorionic hemorrhage). The word hemorrhage makes it sound really scary, but my midwife wasn't too concerned at all. She said she sometimes doesn't even mention these to patients because they are common and usually cause no problems. From my reading in other message boards, everyone who has them seems to bleed at some point during pregnancy, sometimes passing large clots. I am terrified of this and wondering if anyone here could share their experience. Also, it seems as though treatment for this involves at least some kind of activity restriction, although my midwife assured me I can continue normal activites. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Re: subchorionic hemorrhage

I haven't had one, but another mother at gymboree who is also pregnant with twins did. She freaked because she thought she was losing one or both, but it turns out everything is fine. They also mention it in that book "Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy" as a rather non-event. Although if I found I was bleeding I would probably have a coronary right there!

Re: subchorionic hemorrhage

I don't know if mine was called hemorrrhaging but I bled really bad when I was only 7/8 weeks pregnant. I thought I lost my baby. The pain was so bad and I was passing huge blood clots. They told me that I had a m/c. I went in the next day for an u/s and so many people looked at me and said that my baby was fine. I bled all around the uterus but my baby ws okay. I just went in for another u/s yesturday at 14 weeks and there is still a blood clot. It has been causeing me some pain but they said if I still bleed I should be okay. So I'm trying not to worry, this one is small in comparion to my last one. Anyways I don't know if that's what you meant but this is what happened to me. I hope this makes you feel a little bit better. Me and my baby are just fine. Good luck Sherri

Re: subchorionic hemorrhage

Hello, in my first pregnancy I had a subchorionic hemorrhage at about 15 weeks.....it was so scary.....a lot of bleeding and even my hemoglobin-sp??? was low I had lost that much blood.....but it happened outside the uterus and it did not even bother my little baby girl. My OB said it was membranes that had ruptured and that is what caused all the bleeding. My cousin happened to have one also,.....we were told that they run in families. I done't know if this is of any help but just know that I have a healthy 4 1/2 yr. old who is doing great!!!!! take care

BEDREST!!! i was told by numerous specialists to continue going to work despite me having a "small" sub chorionic heamorage. I spent my pregnancy in agony with Gushs of blood at the worst of times. Very embarrassing to say the least. No matter how many times i was rushed in the doctors never took my pain seriously and fobbed me off with painkillers. my bleeding was so heavy they told me id miscarried twice! I was rushed in again at 19 weeks as i had yet another heavy bleed with more clotting and again i had abdominal pain and a familiar right sided pain. This time they DIDNT say i would miscarry they assured me they would get me to 24 weeks and give me steroids and deliver my son early. unfortunatly my son was born at 19 weeks (30th octo 07). far to small to survive and the doctors wouldnt try to save him as he wasnt viable. Doctors and midwifes show nothing but ignorance for this condition and i advise TOTAL BEDREST!! If i could only turn back the clocks! I really hope everything is ok 4 u please keep me informed xxx

Re: subchorionic hemorrhage

I had a blood clot around 9 weeks and had some very minor spotting...when I went back a few weeks later, the clot had resolved itself, just like the tech said it probably would =)
