Hey ladies anyone ever been diagnosed with a subchronic hematoma and had a successful pregnancy?
With my first pregnancy I had a SCH diagnosed at 8 weeks. I had random bleeding daily until 11 weeks and was completely done by 14 weeks. I had an extra ultrasound at 16 weeks where they determined it had cleared on its own. They told me to take it easy, which I did (desk job) and I stopped my exercise and any heavy lifting.
With my 3rd pregnancy, I had heavy bright red bleeding everytime I did anything remotely close to activity. It started at 6 weeks and ended around 15 weeks. They never found a cause for that. My water did break at 33 weeks but I don't know if there is any relation.
I think most of the time it resolves itself and everything is fine. Google is not your friend here

I had one with a previous pregnancy. My baby arrived healthy as could be a few days before his due date.
Mine was very large and persisted through basically the entire second trimester-which is very rare. Usually they resolve on their own during the first trimester. I did a lot of bedresting, but we still made it to the end just fine.
I would agree with the above poster about the internet, although I did get on there when I had my SCH. There are scary stories, but truly your chances are good that it will not cause problems.
I started bleeding a little today and when I called my doc they said it was a sch and like you said not to worry about they resolve on their own. But it seems like I'm having a little more cramping and back pain than usual. Did you ladies have a little more cramping?
Ya google was no good!! Horrible stories!
My friend had one. Her dr put her on complete bedrest and terrified her and her husband with horror stories. She had a hard time bonding with the pregnancy because he (the dr) had her convinced she would lose the baby. In a few weeks it got better on its own, and she now has a healthy 5 month old.
It scares me, I just went to the bathroom again and it's now turn to bright red blood. I'm just praying that it's passing and getting out of there!!
Went to the er to get some reassurance due to my doc out of town. They couldn't find a hb on us. Sorry I'm not meaning to scare or be neg. thank you ladies for all your responses
