There doesn't seem to be a lot of activity on this part of the board, but I thought I'd throw this out anyway to see if anyone else was struggling with a SCH.
I started bleeding at 7w and have been on alternating strict/modified bed rest ever since--over 7 weeks ago!!
DH and I struggled hard for this pregnancy and I will do whatever it takes to keep these babies safe. it is just very difficult with the uncertainty. When I engage in even moderate activity I start red bleed which is very frightening. I had one bleed out so bad that I ended in ER as I was soaking through a pad every 45 minutes for hours. Otherwise I have brown bleeding every day. (Sorry for TMI). I know that they can resolve or bleed out, but I also know they can cause abruption of the placenta and m/c. Some days I am able to remain positive in my outlook, but other days I get discouraged and cry. It is very difficult as I had so wanted to be able to be happy and enjoy my pregnancy--especially with the excitement of twins...but it is hard when I am not sure if I will truly be able to hold them.
If anyone is dealing with this---or has dealt with it--love to know.
