Subchorionic Hematoma...(Also posted in health)

I am 23 weeks pregnant and have had a subchorionic bleed since October 5th. Baby is doing wonderful, but doctors seem shocked that I've made it this far without miscarrying. They say these things are normally healed by now if they didn't cause a miscarriage. It seems that everything will be fine, but I am having a hard time finding any decent information about this condition? Anybody have any stories, good or bad to share? Thank you!

  • I know a girl, IRL, who was told she had one and that she'd need to be on STRICT bed rest in order to sustain the pregnancy. But she has a 2 y/o with special needs and bed rest was not an option for her so she had an abortion.

  • I have no idea what that even is, but you deserve a bump and a better answer than the first one. I hope you are getting more information in the health section.

  • I dont know what that is, but if the docs cant believe you havent miscarried, that means you baby is a fighter and wants to make it!!! Do what ever you need to do to stay healthy and keep that baby healthy! And if for some reason you go into labor early your baby has a chance of living with all the technology out there :o)

    Stay positive and Call your doc. office and ask where you can get more info on this condition. They should be able to give you a site on line or some books to read.. Even a few print offs is better than nothing :o)

    Good Luck and I am praying for you and your little one!!!!
