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.
