OMG, are you okay? I didn't even know you were prego! you never said anything when I spoke to you the last time! You be very careful, which I am sure you are, my heart just aches for you. Get home safe and give me a call I'll come over and help with Yoni if you would like the help [:)]. I had a very large blood clot at 2-3 wks but they never said it was a subchorionic bleed. I did bleed very heavily but the clot stayed put and I was on strict br and getting my HCG levels checked every 3-4 days along with u/s every 5 days. Give me a call when you get home if you can. When do you come home? You are a very strong woman just hold in there, my prayers are with you[:I]

Hi Bonnie, I'm sorry to hear about your scare. I'm pretty sure that Elizabeth (5thtymachrm) had this with her pregnancy. You might check out her postings. I'm sending major sticky vibes to you.

I have not, but wanted to say I'm so sorry! What an awful scare that must be/have been!

BTW, how far along are you?

Quick update - Graphic and TMI

Hi ladies. I thought I'd fill you in on my latest saga. But, I want to forwarn you that it's quite graphic.

Friday morning, I woke up feeling "weird". I went to the bathroom and realized that there was blood -- actually A LOT of blood. I am out of town (in canada) and wasn't sure what to do. I called the LD dept in Seattle and they told me to go to the nearest er. I went and after a long wait (canadian med system sucks), and a lot of testing, I was diagnosed with a subchorionic bleed. The bleeding did subside and they did an ultrasound and saw a fetal heartbeat. They released me with orders to stay off my feet and no lifting. After spending the whole day in the hospital I called and spoke with my peri. He told me that although bleeding in preg is never good, it was encouraging that both the bleeding stopped and that they saw a heart beat. He did warn me that the flight back might make it worse. He also explained that if the bleeding started up and didn't stop that it could cause a miscarriage.

Here's my question. Have any of you had a subchorionic bleed? How long did it take for it to stop bleeding? How far along were you?

I must run, but I'll try to check in again later. Thanks for listening!!
