In good news, I have two healthy babies, both with very strong heart beats. One's at 147 bpm and the other at 160 bpm - it's still astonishing to me that we can hear them at 7 wks 2 days. I couldn't believe how much the second one had grown - we couldn't even see it a week ago!

BUT (why, oh why, is there always a but?), I have a sub chorionic bleed, very obvious on ultrasound. I haven't had a single bit of spotting, so it really caught me off guard. I've been ordered to stay in bed for a week and will go back next Monday, hoping for some resolution. I've read a lot about SCH on these boards, so I was at least somewhat prepared for it, but I can't help being scared. I promised my RE I wouldn't google it, so I'm keeping that promise and only talking to you guys about it.

If anyone has any SCH stories that end happily, I'd welcome them. Also, if there's anything at all I can do to help my body heal, please let me know.

Thanks for your continued support,
Leigh

If you believe in old wifes tales..you are probably having a boy and girl..Under 150 is male and over is female...others will dispute this but I have seen it too many times.

Sorry about the SCH. Rest as your RE said and hopefully you will get more assurance next week.

I have a subchorionic bleed too - seen today on ultrasound. I am 7w6d along and yesterday I had significant bleeding for about 2 hours - just like my period and I thought it was all over. Bleeding tapered off, so I felt a bit better but was still very nervous for my US this morning - my SCH is small and not near the placenta, so that's great. I read stuff online and most of the time these things turn out just fine with some rest. I'm on a week of bed rest too - but I can go to work a couple afternoons if I want too - we'll see how I feel tomorrow. I'm just trying to relax and drink a lot of water. Most of the time these really do turn out to be just fine - and you haven't had any bleeding, which is great. My husband likened it to having a scrape on your arm - you want to leave it alone and heal - don't pick at the scab (which would be exercising, etc.). I read to drink lots of water - avoid dehydration which can cause uterine contractions. Of course that means many potty trips, but I guess it's worth it. Anyway, we should be fine - fingers crossed.

Unfortunately, mine is not small and looks to be compromising about 20% of the placenta of one of the embryos. I know this isn't an issue for the embryo in terms of getting the blood and nutrients it needs, but the risk of miscarriage is much greater...Ugh.

Still, I'm hoping some rest, relaxation and hydration will do the trick! Good luck to you and here's hoping everything heals up nicely! Thanks for writing.

Hi Leigh,
Congrats on your pregnancy. I also had an SCH when I was pregnant with my twins. Like you, I had no bleeding at all. I took it very easy and the SCH resolved itself by week 18 or so. Just be careful not to lift anything heavy. (I tried...but DD had just turned one at the time so I did cheat many times).

Everything turned out OK and my b/g twins are now 6 months old.

I hope the rest of your pregnancy is uneventful.

Leigh and Green E, I don't have any experience to offer - but I'm sending you both prayers and positive energy for you and your little ones.

Hang in there!!!
