SCH- 16 weeks with hematoma causing placenta. To come away

anyone experience this?

I have a sub chronic hematoma under baby's placenta and some has come away. As of last nigh baby was alive and well. Waiting on doc to come in this morning to scan.


I was pouring blood so much blood it doesn't even compare to my heaviest period. I also passed 2 large clots.

Bleeding has slowed throughout the night but I'm still very afraid .

Please if you've experienced this I would love to know more. I thought I was past the danger zone and now they are saying It's possible the placenta could come away,

Re: SCH- 16 weeks with hematoma causing placenta. To come away

  • SCHs are very terrifying and unfortunately, pretty common! We had 2 during this pregnancy, 1 at 6 weeks, the other at 7. Both times, I had a huge rush of blood and we were convinced we were losing the pregnancy. After each bleed, we had an ultrasound done and they would measure how big the SCH was and it's position. Luckily, ours were positioned where they were the least harmful to the placentas but they were still concerned because at those times of the pregnancy, the SCH was bigger than each baby. I was put onto immediate bed rest, pelvic rest, no lifting or exercise. 3 days later we would go in for a repeat ultrasound. During that time, my bleeding would slow down and the color of the blood would turn from bright red to brown. I'd also notice clots coming out but was assured that it was a good sign, it meant my body was passing the SCH quickly and not waiting to absorb it.
    I'm sorry, I have no experience with the placentas being affected at all during these bleeds. A good friend of mine did have a SCH that was threatening the placenta during her second trimester and was on light bed rest for several weeks until it healed itself- her daughter turned 1 this week.

    Please keep us updated and know my thoughts are with you. I'm sorry you have to deal with this, it feels like such a terribly bumpy road we're all on already.

  • I had a SCH with my DS (IVF#2, PG again with the solo frostie). I sat on the toilet and blood poured out of me. I would say to my husband that is no pee. We cried all night thinking we lost the baby. I was around 11-12 weeks. By the morning we went for an u/s and it showed there was still as much blood in there as the baby and sack of water. They were worried the pressure would rupture my sack of water. SCH are common and very scary. I am soooooo sorry you are going through this and I hope for the best for you. Keep hope as my son is almost 2 now and we still can't believe my body healed somehow and he is here!! T&P for you and baby.

  • I currently have a medium sized SCH that is very close to the placenta. It has not caused an abruption as far as I know yet. Last ultrasound placenta was still attached, but I am on strict bed rest and hoping it will resolve. It's a waiting game. My SCH was first seen on an ultrasound at 10 weeks and I am now 14. Bleeding comes and goes. I am still having gushes, which I hate. I am sorry that your SCH is causing so many problems. In my research I have read stories of partial abruptions that resulted in heathy babies. I will be praying for you and hoping that the SCH starts shrinking and you have no more issues! Hang in there momma :)

  • I had bleeding at 15 weeks that lasted for about a week and then more two weeks later that also lasted for a week. It was so scary, especially after dealing with infertility. They never found the cause of the bleeding, but my doctor suspected that part of the placenta came up and there was a vein underneath. I also passed a very large clot the second time. My doctor said it's like when you're making a pancake, if you lift a corner of if up, if won't stick back to the pan. He also told me that even 50% of the placenta can lift up and the baby still does well. I think you will be ok, but please keep us posted on how you are doing.

  • I had bleeding a couple weeks ago, but he reproductive endocrinologist wasn't concerned. I was nervous and worried that one of my twins wasn't there anymore so my regular ob did and ultrasound which showed a small SCH. I suspect it would have been larger if I had been scanned earlier but I did have a good amount of bleeding. It seems to be ok and they are watching it. I get another ultrasound in 2 weeks to check. I agree that this is scary and even more so since we can do nothing about it. Thoughts and prayers heading your way. Hope everything turns out well and just gives you good story to torture the kid with in the future.

  • I had SCH at 8 weeks, panicked and went to the ER. Although no professional has said anything. I suspect they are more common in IF patients due to drugs. At my 30 week appointment, all evidence of the event finally resolves itself. Up until then I also had to see a maternal fetal medicine doctor. From what I gathered, it depends strongly on how much healthy placenta is still attached.
