Hi girls (pg ment, loss ment)

Hi girls,

I'm back for some love.

I am almost 8 weeks pg, after my loss at 11 weeks this past August. I was diagnosed this morning, after some intense bleeding last night, with a subchorionic hematoma/hemmorhage. The M/W told me that all we can do is wait as see, but that most clear up.

Damn it all, I don't want to wait and see. I feel like I'm reliving August all over again...wait and see...bleed for weeks and just wait it out. I was a wreck last night...a raving maniac for poor DH yelling that I just can't do that again. I know that I will do what it takes to hold a baby in my arms and I know that my challenges aren't what some women face. But this diagnosis is a real emotional blockage to me.

I have good support in my family...my sis brought me flowers, my mom drove me to the clinic, my DH hugged me. But it all comes back to ME having to wait it out, knowing there's a baby in there that may or may not make it. I know, in my logical head, that it is the case regardless of the hematoma. I just hate bleeding.

So far, the bleeding has stopped since last night. It stopped about midmorning. I'm not sure if it's a large hematoma or a small one yet...still waiting for my m/w to go over the report.

It's just so discouraging. My first two pgs were so hasslefree and I thought that I could continue having easy pgs...this and the last one were so emotionally draining.

Thanks for letting me vent ladies. I really appreciate your listening ears.
All the best,
Emily

pg mentioned

(((((HUGS)))))) I'm so sorry for your loss and that you are having a rough time of it with your current pregnancy. "Wait and see" is SOOO much easier said than done. I will keep you and the little bean in my thoughts and wish all the best for you both. ((More hugs))

Hugs Emily. I also hate the waiting to see. I had an SCH with my son, and just waiting to see how things went was awful. And so soon after your loss, Hugs! Please keep us posted.

I had one of those with Ada too. Although she didnt end up making it in the long term, the SCH did clear up and the bleeding stopped. Hopefully it will for you too. :comfort:

I am so very sorry for your prior loss. I will keep you in my prayers. I will also pray that your soul finds at least some of the peace that it so truly deserves.

I am so sorry. I had a sub chor bleed with my daughter at 11 weeks. I bleed for about 1 day and was on bedrest for 1 week (just in case) everything was alright, the bleed wasn't the cause for my loss. I know the wait and see is painful but you must try to stay positive. I know we can't make the worry go away but please know that we are all thinking of you and sending you positive vibes.

(hugs)

Oh Emily, I'm so sad to see you here. I know how much it sucks waiting, not knowing, but preparing for the worst. It might be a good sign that your bleeding has stopped though. I know it's extremely difficult to remain positive during something like this, but for now all you can do is try to focus on your bean staying put. My thoughts will be with you and I truly hope you don't have to endure the pain of another loss.

Thanks for the support ladies. The bleeding has stopped for now. I bled again yesterday for about 15 minutes. It's like it comes in waves and isn't a constant thing...but I hear that's pretty common. It's been more than 24 hours since my last bleed though.

It's really shocking to bleed so much that you're literally dripping. I spotted with my 2nd pregnancy but it was just spotting so I paid it no mind...this bleeding business is another story.

I have another u/s booked for Monday morning and will keep you ladies posted on the findings. Smile

Thanks for the hugs! I really needed them!
