I am 9 weeks pregnant and have had bleeding on and off since I was 5 weeks. The ultrasound shows that I have a subchorionic hemorrhage. Last night I was driving when I felt a gush of fluid between my legs. I touched my pants and saw blood on my hands. I rushed to the ER. My panties and pants were soaked with blood. My HCG levels were up from my last visit and the ultrasound showed that the baby had a heart beat of 170 and was swimming around. The ER doc says I have a 50% chance of miscarrying this baby.
Has anyone else experienced this? What was the outcome?

My situation is not as severe as yours: I'm 8 weeks pregnant & have been bleeding for a little over a week now. My sister has had 2 miscarriages & 2 premature babies (one of which did not survive) so I'm a little more worried & nervous than most other women would probably be. I had an internal ultrasound on Friday & my baby had a heartbeat of 167 & was also swimming around. I thought 167 was kinda high but the doctors told me everything was fine & sent me home on bedrest for the next week until my next appt. This was Friday it's now Sunday & I'm still bleeding & cramping.
