my 7 week u/s: hematoma
This morning I called my dr and asked for an earlier appointment since for the past 24 hours I keep losing a lot of blood and clots.  I was 100% certain that I had a m/c.  I just came from my u/s.  The news is very mixed.  The good news is that baby is growing and is measuring exactly where it should measure at 7 weeks.  We still saw the heartbeat.  Unfortunately, placenta did not attach to the uterus properly and I developed a HUGE hematoma (I think it's called subchorionic hematoma or placental abruption).  Naturally, this may or may not cause a m/c.  Has anyone here experienced something like this?

Helen, i'm so glad to hear that the little one is growing on time and has a strong heart beat!!! subchorionic hemorrhages are VERY common and the most common cause of bleeding in ealry pregnancies, most of them seal up with no problems and have a healthy nine months!   Your in my thoughts and prayers everyday that the little one grows snug in there the next nine months! : )

I had a subchorionic hematoma when i was 10 weeks pg with my daughter. Usually they go away by themselves.  Mine was small and i caught it early - i was bleeding and went to the ER.  I also have a blood clotting disorder so i had to be put on injections - however the hematoma went away within a month.  Hope this helps. Good Luck!

BLAH about the bleeding, but HIP-HIP-HORRAY for the baby. When is your next appt? I assume they are keeping a VERY close eye on you.

I was diagnosed w/ a small subchorionic bleed at 7wks 2dys.I was just spotting brown blood then it changed to dark red.It's been varying in amount and from dark red to bright red and back again.Last night it had stopped but this morning it started again.I have been VERY worried about miscarrying but they keep saying not to worry.I am not sure how long it takes to heal but am hoping it heals soon.Seeing blood everytime I go to the bathroom is nerve wracking!! Not to mention that one of the pluses of pregnancy is no period,feels weird being prego and having to still buy and wear pads  :)
