Ultrasound to measure hemorrhage

Sep 05, 2010 - 0 comments










After my bleeding episodes last weekend, I had an u/s and there was a subchorionic hemorrhage that was causing the bleed.  It is a good size, 7cm x 8cm but the baby was kicking around with a healthy hbeat of 146bpm.  I have been on bed rest and taking it easy and the bleeding and spotting has stopped as of 2 days ago.  I am still quite concerned just because of all of the stuff I have read and by the fact that my midwives can only tell me that it will be monitored and most of the time things get better but in some cases, this can lead to miscarriage, preterm labour and placental abruption....ALL SCARY THINGS! I'm hoping that at my next u/s on Tuesday the baby is still doing well and that the hemorrhage has gotten smaller. This is supposed to be the honeymoon phase of pregnancy in the second trimester and now, I'm terrified every time I go to the bathroom that I'm going to see blood. Stress isn't good at any time but during pregnancy it can effect the baby and that is the last thing I want.  I know I can't control what is going to happen. My midwife told me to try to find peace in whatever the outcome may be.  I'm trying...I just want this baby to make it. I know I can't make things happen the way I want but I can pray, hope and will positive thoughts for a positive outcome.  Trying to relax, trying to find peace.
