Subchorionic hematoma

Hi ladies!
I'm currently nine weeks pregnant with my second baby. I had an ultrasound done last week to confirm gestational age. Dr called me back and said the us did show a subchorionic hematoma and asked if I had been spotting or bleeding, which I have not. I asked if I needed to be seen again and she said to just keep my regular appt, which is until August 15. Dr didn't seem too concerned but I am a bit worried. As anyone else gone through this and had a positive outcome? Feeling stressed

I had a sudden, brief bleed at 7w which I believe was due to a subchroionic hematoma.  I'm now 35w with a healthy baby.

I did have a hematoma early on my pregnancy. I went to a regular appointment and told the doctor I had had a very light spotting. When she checked she said I had a small hematoma. Nothing to worry about.
I'm 35 weeks now, baby's healthy, no more hematomas around
I remember at that time I wondered if it could have been caused by my daughter kicking me on the belly..
If you don't bleed, like in a period, I would definitely not give it a second thought. You are fine! Hematomas are very common, just like the bruises you get on arms or legs, they will eventually go away

Thank you ladies! Your comments are giving me the peace of mind I was hoping for. I'll try not to stress about it and hope it's gone by my next appt.

I had a small hematoma and had light spotting from week six through week 10. Mostly dark brown but intermittently red. I had ultrasounds a bit more frequently (every 2 weeks) but I was told they most often resolve on their own if small. I saw my Dr last week and she scheduled a month out for next appoitnment. Bleeding stopped so I'm assuming that's good. I'm 10+3.

I was SO worried when I was told I had one.... But I am now 28 weeks and baby is fine. No bleeding for me, my body just absorbed it. Don't stress, its more common than you think.

Don't worry! I also had one that made me bleed, but that's it, as long it's not touching the gestational sac or beneath it, no worries, it'll cease. I'm 19+4 and great! xoxo

I had a subchorionic bleed which was extremely heavy bleeding with 3-6 quarter sized clots a day from week 6-12. Went in for weekly ultrasounds to check growth and heartrate. I was 25 then, had a healthy baby boy who is now 12.
