I am pregnant with my 4th baby, which was completely unplanned.  I was also diagnosed with a sch.  It was detected on what I thought was my 9 week ultrasound, but I guess I am closer to 5 weeks according to the size of the baby.  I had a little spotting a few days before I went to the dr, and I just figured it was my muscles stretching, or maybe I just overdid it a little at the gym.  Well since finding out last friday about this I haven't been back to the gym because I am just a little freaked out about it.  Then yesterday evening I started bleeding.  I was frantic, but when I called the dr she said that due to the hemmorhage it is completely normal.  That I just need to monitor the size of the clots, and call back if the bleeding worsens or the clots get bigger.  To me this is anything but normal.  I have had 3 easy pregnancies that has resulted in 3 beautiful boys all 4 years apart in age.  I don't understand how or why there could be something wrong now.  My friends and family say it is my girl causing problems from day 1, literally

honey you got lucky. my doctors tried to tell me it was normal too, it's not normal and it's very dangerous but what it is is COMMON. more than you would think.

i say you are lucky because this didn't happen until your fourth pregnancy.
many women have this in their second pregnancy, myself included. most who have it get it in third. if you have it once it almost a guarantee it will occur in every pregnancy after and worse.

rest as much as you can. try not stress yourself even though that is hard. i started bleeding in my second month, around the eighth week and my baby girl is beautiful. just pray as much as you can and rest just as often.

Funny i have it too. I thought it was week 8 when i got the ultrasound and they said it was week 6. Then I read this sch can cause a slower growth in the fetus.
