Separated Amniotic Sac?

Last week I went to the ER and was told I had had a subchorionic hemorrhage but that the baby was fine and it looked like the bleeding would heal itself. No more bleeding as of now. Yesterday I went for my 12 week check up with my regular OB and she couldn't find a heartbeat so wheeled in an US to look. Baby was fine and kicking, but she showed the med student that my sac was separated in 2 by a line and something about the yolk sac being outside. She didn't make a big deal of it so I didn't ask any questions but now I want to know what she was talking about. The only things I can find online are about twins, since we only saw one baby and she didn't say anything about me maybe loosing a twin I assume it doesn't apply. It also didn't look like amniotic bands or anything like that. Has anyone else ever had this? Or know what it is?

Re: Separated Amniotic Sac?

The amniotic sac is actually a pair of membranes - the amnion (inner membrane) and the chorion (outer membrane). Could that explain what she was talking about?

I have been reading that if the amnion and chorion was separated that it is pretty serious, since she didn't act too concerned I would think that isn't it, at least I hope so.

Re: Separated Amniotic Sac?

I'd call your OB up and ask. It's going to drive you nuts wondering so just call and say you heard her mention it and were wondering what it means and if it is something you need to be concerned about. I'm sure she'll understand.

I am 15+ weeks,, and just got the diagnosis Monday (from a bleed on Wed and Thurs) that I had a Subchorionic Hematoma...... There wasn't any seperation.. BUT just to say... Definately keep the convo between your OB/MW open so that they are abreast of all that is going on.
I am so glad you got to see the baby is fine.. I KNOW this is nerve racking.. and they tell me the same.. taht I should be fine, and this should resolve itself.... *hears'hopin'
