    Not to worry too much. I had one as well. Found out about it at 7 weeks for my first ultrasound. They said if it burst, it could cause a miscarriage, but mine never did... they even seen it at a 36 week ultrasound.. still there, undisturbed. I think you should be alright. Good luck.

    I too had a subchorionic bleed with my second pregnancy. I actually had three of them. Mine started at 12 weeks amd lasted till 24 weeks. I remember searching the internet for hours and finding nothing. My bleeding was on and off for 12 weeks. I would have heavy bright red bleeding for a while and it would lighten up and turn brownish only to start with the bright red again, I also had many clots, one was the size of my palm. I was so scared all the time, I would cry and cry fearing I was going to miscarry at any time. I didn't and now have a beautiful, very healthy 14 month old. My best advice is to rest as much as possible, don't do anything too strenuous and no sex! Best of luck to you.

    I had one at about 7wks, a small one. You didn't mention whether or not it was explained to you exactly what it was. It's basicly where a small portion of your placenta tears away, this is what causes the bleeding. Untill the bleeding stops it's recommended that you take it easy because you are at higher risk for misscarriage. If fetal heart was detected than you have a 90something % chance of carring to term (assuming you have no further complications). I had a very healthy 8lb6oz baby girl after mine, and my doctor told me that she has had patients with very large ones who carried to term with no other complications. If you have a large one i would suggest taking it easy especially if you are bleeding.
    Try doing a search for threatened misscarriage this may come up with more information, this is what my doctor told me it was called, i discovered the other name for it once i had done some searching.

    I also had a subchorionic bleed, although just a little one, during my last pregnancy. Your doctor's right, they are pretty common. My baby turned out just fine, and I'm sure yours will too. I'll keep you and your little one in my prayers, just try to relax and not worry. I know that's easier said than done, but eveyone I've heard of with this has had a good end result.

    Maybe I have this, too. I have been spotting brown blood once a week (1-3days) for six weeks. I went to the ER on Friday and the doctor told me I had a small detachment. I went to my doctor yesterday. He said that he couldn't tell from thier scans and has me coming in for another u/s in two weeks. He said the placenta looked good (from what he could see) and he didn't think this was the cause of all my bleeding. The baby's size is right on target and the hb is in normal range.

    Is my situation subchrionic bleeding, too?

    Re: subchorionic bleeds please help!!!!

    It could be....i don't think they notice the tear, what is noticable is the blood that builds up. Atleast that is what i gathered, maybe it's too small to notice. What happened with me was i had a small tear and it slowly leaked out. I had one or two spots of red blood the rest was brown, i bleed for a total of maybe 2 weeks, i think it was more like a week. As far as what my ultrasound showed everything was normal other than the bleed, i was 7 wks, baby was normal size with normal heatrate, and i had no other complications durring that pregnancy as far as bleeding was concerned. The fact that you are bleeding old blood (fresh blood is red not brown) would lead me to believe that it is, of course i'm not a doctor, but that's what my situation was, the blood had slowly leaked out, rather than all at once so most of the blood that came out was old. My only advice is untill you know exactly what is going on take it easy, if this is what is going on with you than you are at an increased risk for miscarriage, so take it easy untill you stop bleeding and know exactly what is going on.
