Bruised Womb (Subchorionic Hematoma?)

I'm almost 10 weeks pregnant and last week, after a small amount of bleeding, was scanned to reveal I have a small bruise on my womb (probably as a result of implantation). I've done lots of googling and see this is quite common (also known as subchorionic hematoma I think), however I am passing bits of tissue and can't seem to find out much about what this might be or why it's happening. I've had two miscarriages in the past so am fairly worried, although I'm hardly bleeding now and nothing bright red. The tissue looks like skin, pinky white and sometimes brown, and isn't huge. I'm hoping someone else has experienced this and can shed some light on the situation? At hospital I was told that people experience different things with this, and they didn't seem too worried at all, but didn't suggest what the bits of tissue could be. I'd love to hear others who may have experienced this. Thanks!

I had one. Had absolutely shed loads of bleeding at about 11 weeks. It was heavier than the heaviest period I've ever had and went on for two days. Then I had two weeks of constant (but quite light) brown blood. My haematoma was v large. It was only found after the v heavy bleed and measure something like 10cmx10cmx3cm.

My son was born at 39+5 at home and totally oblivious to all the stress.

Worst thing you can do is google. Google is not your friend! Fingers crossed for a really boring and uneventful next 30 weeks for you.

Glad you had a positive outcome and thanks for sharing your story. I accidentally posted this twice so have had a few other replies and I'm feeling a bit calmer about things!

And I KNOW you're right about google!
