TW Limbo Land with SCH - T&P please

I thought I would make an actual thread so others could see and relate if they needed to.

I started having nausea, sore nipples and sore boobs at 5+6, yay! On 6+2, DH and I had sex, which was uncharacteristically painful. Afterwards, I had about a tablespoon of bright red blood come out at once. Cried, put a pad in, and woke up the next morning to brown spotting overnight and nothing right then. I attributed it to sex and irritated cervix. Normal spotting.

6+3 I had slight brown spotting from cervix throughout the day, but not necessary to use a pad. Then, when I was at the grocery store, I apparently started walking with my hands on my low back (maybe was feeling some discomfort there). A few minutes later I felt that terrible warm gush. I immediately went to the bathroom and saw my underwear just saturated with bright red blood. It felt like blood was pouring out of me. Just nonstop. It was so scary.

I sobbed in the bathroom for a good 15 minutes. I wrapped an unscenely amount of toilet paper around my underwear and also as a makeshift pad, and waddled out to the car. I noticed cramping started a bit, but not terrible. More like period cramps. I got home, put a large overnight pad on, and prayed I wouldn't ruin the bed overnight. I read some things about Subchorionic hemorrhage vs miscarriage, and decided I was going to confirm this by going to the doctor the next day, and called into work.

6+4 When I woke up I had only brown spotting from the night before, but when I would pee, all the bright blood would come out. About 2 tbspns I'd guess. I still had all my symptoms - nausea, sore firm heavy boobs, sore nipples (slightly less, but still sore).

My doctor saw me and we did an ultrasound immediately. I have a very very large subchorionic hemorrhage, and we saw a gestational sac and yolk sac and fetal pole. But no HB. The amount of blood is tremendous, pooling at the bottom of my uterus. She didn't put the ultrasound wand very far in, it felt like it was almost out. I don't know if that's because of all the bleeding. Hard to tell if baby was measuring correctly. I had betas done as well.

I'm on bedrest, pelvic rest, all the rests. I go back on Tuesday to figure out which direction this is going in. For now, I'm still pregnant. Thoughts and prayers please, but I know large SCH's have a much higher risk of miscarriage. But at least we know this is SCH bleeding/cramping, not miscarriage. 

I think it's amazing how much this seemed like a true miscarriage, so I hope others can find this informative. Also, stories and experiences are cool too, because yea.

  • You are in my prayers.
  • Thoughts and prayers for you! I have an SCH and I've been bleeding for 2 weeks. Heartbeat was detected but the doctor didn't sound hopeful. He just kept repeating that its a 50/50 chance. It's the hardest thing I've ever gone through. Every time I see blood, I feel my heart drop. I have to have a sono every week and I'm on all the rests too. I love my little baby, but this feels so cruel to me.

  • i can't imagine how you're feeling right now, but I'm thinking of you and your little one and sending positive thoughts your way.  Please keep us posted.
  • I'm so very sorry your going through this. I had a SCH with my last pregnancy (I'll start by saying I now have a mad man 10 mo) but I bled alot from about 8 weeks until about 22 weeks.

     First I had a tear from placenta failure to attach which was scary then I had the SCH. Anything that could go wrong did. (I'll just add this was after 3 mc) The SCH was large, it grew twice which they told me they didn't want it to get larger (I had regular us) but eventually it did go away. But I bled alot for a very long time. From my research back then it usually doesn't go away fully until around 20 weeks for most women. Either thier body absobs it or for most you bleed it out. (I truly pray this is the case for you as it was for me)

    I will def say a prayer for you and your lo. Stay positive and def take the rest seriously. I was told not to lift anything heavier than a gallon of milk too.
  • I too have an SCH with this pregnancy. Will have continued/increased monitoring as well and I'm on all the rest. Modified though- not firm bed rest. 

    I had an undiagnosed SCH with DS (who is now 16 mo) that hemorraged at 11.5weeks. I passed a 6in clot and while the paramedics and my mom were convinced I lost the baby, I just knew I didn't. 

    FX for a positive outcome. That's the most important thing right now... You need to stay positive!! 

  • Hi! I hope that this eases your mind a bit. I am 12 weeks and was put on bed rest for SCH. The bedrest did wonders. For the time being I would not have sex or lift anything, put your feet up and drink plenty of water. Many women who have this go on to have very healthy babies. I had an Ultrasound yesterday and my body has absorbed most of the hemmorage*. Good luck to you, rest up!

    First of all, congrats @Sugargirl1019 on the pregnancy :) I'm so happy to see you back. 

    I don't remember if you were still around when I dealt with SCH, but here's a link to my very upsetting experience: http://forums.thebump.com/discussion/12675191/not-so-good-news-updated/p1 I'll also say that before the bright red blood, I had had a couple of weeks of brown/pink spotting. Fortunately it all turned out well.

    Slightly different but in the same vein, in my first pregnancy in 3rd tri, I slipped and fell on my butt -- which you would think is a safe place to land. Within 3 minutes, I felt like I was peeing myself involuntarily and ran to the restroom to find I was pouring blood. I stuffed my underwear and went back out to cancel the class I was about to teach and call 911 (the university was like 1.5 hours from home, and my car was nowhere near the building). They took me in an ambulance with sirens blazing to the ER where a full team was ready to do an emergency c-section. I had like 7 people pulling my clothes off and hooking me up to machines and another 3 people having me sign paperwork while in varying stages of undress. My only comfort through this was that I could still feel DD move. And once hooked up to the fetal monitor, DD was totally fine. I had a partial placental abruption - similar to SCH - where a small part of the placenta had ripped and was bleeding. I was also having contractions that I couldn't feel but that would exacerbate the bleeding. After three days in the hospital, I was released on procardia, a blood pressure medication that can help prevent pre-term labor. The rest of the pregnancy was fine, and DD popped out (well maybe it was a more terrifying labor than that haha) right on her due date. 

    I know that SCH can possibly lead to miscarriage, but I also wanted you to be aware of at least a couple of cases in which bright red scary bleeding had a positive ending. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the little one. Please feel free to PM me if you need to talk. <so many hugs> <3

  • DD1 measured a week behind the date I knew was her due date for sure, and she turned out totally fine...well a little weird, but she's my kid after all. DD2 so far started out three days behind schedule and now is running at least a day ahead of schedule. So don't worry about that variation. It's too little to mean anything. And the heartbeat usually starts right around that time. During my scare I was 6w5d and the heartbeat was 120, which concerned me because it's low. By 9 weeks it had picked up to 168 or so. It's still early for you.

    We're thinking of you over in D16, and we'll keep checking back. SO many positive thoughts and prayers for you, and please do PM me if you want to talk. I am absolutely here for you. I discussed it in my post, but this limbo is so incredibly difficult. <creepy internet hugs>

  • @Sugargirl1019 I had an SCH last pregnancy, which started bleeding around 12 weeks. I had no idea it was there until the first big bleed.

    My experience was extremely similar to what you've described. I was on all forms of rest for 4 weeks, then modified bed rest following.  It was SO scary, and I have major anxiety about it happening again this time.  If you ever need someone to talk to about it, please feel free to PM me. I know exactly how it feels - as do the others who have shared experiences. 

    DD is 16 months on Monday, BTW. So it all worked out for us. :)

    Update: Just more of the same. It had really done well and was just brown spotting. But, today as I attempted to wear white shorts and a cute outfit and visit my friend in the hospital, it decided to gush more bright red blood and destroyed EVERYTHING. Thankfully she gave me a pair of sleep shorts and the nurses gave me a pad and mesh panties, and I went home. Cramping a lot still. I've been trying to take it easy. I definitely feel swollen right above my pelvic bone - looks swollen too. I wonder if that's because my uterus is full of blood! Idk. Ugh. Almost there to Tuesday. Ultrasound at 2:45 in the afternoon.
