Re: SCH/Placental Abruption


I had a similar situation...at 10 weeks I woke up one night and was bleeding heavilt. The ER did a U/S and the baby was fine, much to my disbelief. I had a SCH due to partial placenta previa and had bleeding/spotting for about 6 weeks. I wasn't on strict bedrest but my OB did have me stay home from work (I work on my feet all day and have to lift) and take it easy. The placenta previa resolved and I had a healthy baby boy born at 32 weeks (prematurity unrelated to SCH). Good luck, mama!

Re: SCH/Placental Abruption

I had an SCH with my last baby, she's just turned 1. I had my first significant bleed at 6 weeks and the spotting stopped at 26 weeks. The SCH at 11 weeks (it took that long for me to have a scan) was quite large (all down the side of the placenta from the top with pooling down the bottom) but I was not put on bedrest, just no exercise and no sex. I had significant bleeds (bright red) at 6, 11 and 13 weeks and just spotting after that. At 20 weeks it was smaller but still there. All gone when the bleeding stopped at 26 weeks. I had a growth scan at 34 weeks and she was a small average but perfectly fine, she was also delivered fine after a very fast natural labour. I had no placenta previa and no placental abruption.
SCH's are very very common, mine was large and lasted for longer than normal but had a great outcome.

Most early SCHs resolve themselves within a few weeks. Many prayers to you and your family; please keep us posted! Does your doctor have you on any blood thinning medications?
No blood thinners. Thanks everyone for the great positive stories. I am headed to my OB on Wednesday. Hopefully all still looks good. Such a hard thing.

Re: SCH/Placental Abruption

I had a SCH that was found at about 8 weeks with my last pregnancy... like you said, bright red blood and I figured that was the end. But I was on rest for a few weeks, went back around 14 weeks for an u/s and the pocket of blood had been re-absorbed! I had a fine pregnancy and a healthy baby. BIG HUGS!

It is SO scary to have this. I panicked everytime I saw any blood, even though I KNEW it was going to keep happening. Luckily, my OB was amazingly comforting and never complained even once when I called, which was a lot. Hang in there!

Re: SCH/Placental Abruption

Just to add another positive message - I know someone who is in the middle of going through this right now. She had a partial abruption very early in her pregnancy, but baby is fine. She was put on strict bedrest for the first couple of months and while she is still on bedrest, they are letting her get up for short periods of time, go to a few appointments, etc. The baby has grown perfectly and she only has a couple more months to go now. What a miracle!

Re: SCH/Placental Abruption Updated

WHen you say SCH do you mean Hematoma (like a clot that bleeds?) or Hemmorhage (like a tear and bleed?)? Sorry....I just wasnt sure.

I had a SC Hemmorhage with DS3 that lasted 7 months then resolved. It was not fun- blood made me panic every day even though I knew it wasnt stopping. With this pregnancy I had a SC Hematoma at 20 weeks, discovered with a gushing of bood at home. It was TERRIFYING. I was admitted to the hospital on bedrest because it was so large and the placenta was already starting abrubt. I was devastated. The drs pretty much told me that nothing will change the outcome of one of these, bedrest or not- they will either continue and end the pregnancy or dissolve. I have never prayed so hard in my life!! Two days later at an ultrasound to check status they found it to be completely gone and the abruption at stopped. Now, at 31 weeks we are getting excited for baby and so thankful for the outcome.

Good luck mama!! I think your chances for a positive outcome are pretty good.

I've had both if that makes sense. Originally it was a tear and a large bleed and now I've just got the hematoma. It is really scary. They've told me the same thing so, I am opting for restricted activity and not bedrest. I am so glad to hear that your LO is doing well. Thanks for the positive story.
