I am at 8 weeks 3 days and had my third ultrasound today. Pregnancy is progressing well, baby had a strong heartbeat, however, Dr pointed out a small pocket of blood next to the baby which he said could potentially cause a miscarriage (according to him about 15% chance). He also advised to take it really easy, no intercourse and no excersize, which will be very difficult for me as I am very active and used to exercising daily. This obviously has me very concerned and anxious. Dr. said that eventually if all goes well and the baby grows, the blood will either come out or be absorbed into my body. Has anyone else had this issue? Any tips on how to deal with anxiety been appointments? Thank you!
Re: Hematoma next to embryo
I had a large SCH with my last pregnancy and I lost the baby at 15 weeks. My SCH was large enough that it took up half my placenta. Then when it healed, and it did right before the baby passed away, it didn't heal right and the baby wasn't getting what it needed through the placenta.
I literally plan to lay on my couch for a week and do as little as possible. I don't want to do anything that could make mine grow.
@emeraldcity1214 I'm thinking all the best thoughts for you!!!
I have had SCHs with each of my pregnancies (4). The first one was fine, he's a thriving 3yo. That was the only SCH that caused me any bleeding. The middle 2 were not successful, the losses were unrelated to the SCH. But I'm also 13wks into a pregnancy that had an SCH at 8wks. At 10 it was gone.
