I'm 11 weeks pregnant and this morning when I got our if the bath I began bleeding, it was gushing out and I passed two large clots. It was very traumatic and I'm still bleeding now. Soaking every half an hour.

I went to a and e and they took my bloods and send me to the gynae ward, the doctor checked my cervix was closed and they did a scan and baby was there kicking about. I'm shocked, obviously very happy.

She doesn't no why I'm bleeding so much and can't see any reason on scan. Had anyone else had any experience of this?

No experience with this myself, but just wanted to wish you well, I'm glad that your baby is kicking about, and hope that the bleeding stops soon. flowers

Yes, I had a subchorionic haemorrhage with my second at 12 weeks, it was horrendous. I left a puddle of blood on the floor in a&e. My baby was fine too, although they could see the bleed on the scan. I bled until about 22 weeks, very stressful but in the end she was fine. Good luck x

Sorry just re read and realised they was a few typos in first post.

Thank you everyone.

Lordvol I'm glad everything was OK for you in the end. It is horrendous.

I really feel traumatized x

No experience but just wanted to wish you all the best and send a virtual hug as I can't imagine how traumatic that was for you flowers hope it stops soon.

I also had a sub-chorionic haematoma, but mine was earlier. I bled from weeks 5-11. It's very stressful, but I was told that bleeding can mean very little in a healthy pregnancy. Sounds like your little one is doing well. Fingers crossed it eases off soon and causes no more problems flowers
(The other thing worth mentioning- I put myself on modified bed rest and I noticed a huge difference in the amount I bled and how much or little I did. A day on the sofa and only getting up for snacks, drinks and the loo generally meant a tiny bit of spotting. Going to meet a friend for lunch and walking for 1.5 miles over the course of the day meant I had to wear a pad instead of a panty liner.)

Similar experience- subchorionic haemorrhage also. Bled significantly at 9 weeks (was an extremely large amount) and then this settled down to brown bleeding with a few small altered blood clots. Has been stopped for at least a few weeks now (19 weeks at the moment). Baby had been fine all the way through. Hope you can keep calm and rest up!

Had the same, subchronionic haematoma from weeks 5-9 with first pregnancy. She is nearly 5 now! It was really stressful though. I remember it would happen every week and start with a sudden gush of red blood, uncomfortable feeling (rather than pain), and gradually taper off over the next few days to brown blood. I was signed off work and rested.
Just to be aware though, she was a small baby, under 6lb and was 2.5 weeks early. My hunch is that her small size and slightly early arrival were linked with the bleeding (my second was late and over 9lb), plus anecdotally I have heard similar.
Good luck xxx

Thank you for your replies everyone. I'm due to have a CVS test as well tomorrow as my oldest son has a genetic condition. I'm still bleeding but it is very light now. I really hope they are still going to do the test. X

Hi, I ended up being diagnosed with a heamatoma at my scan for CVS, I had bleeding for 5 days it stopped and now been bleeding for a week. It's making me feel very nervous. It's brown now and I'm really hoping it stops soon x

LBNM19, I hope everything goes okay for you!

My fiance and I are currently in a bit of limbo as she's had some heavy bleeding the past few days. After taking the decision to go to A&E with her on Sunday night after the bleeding started on Friday (with some heavy clotting which is terrifying for her) we had a gyno doctor take a look at her, and the neck of the womb is most certainly closed which is good news. All the doctors she saw that night said she is still "very pregnant:.

Her HCG levels are 16000+ (bang on 9 weeks when we went to A&E and her blood was tested) and we've got ante natal tomorrow with a ultra-sound booked in for Friday thanks to early pregnancy squeezing us in.

This thread is leading me to believe that she may be subchorionic herself, though I suppose it could be any number of things. Thank you to those that have posted as I'm feeling a lot more reassured about the possible causes of the bleed.

Yes it does sound similar and it is very scary.

Hope all goes well on Friday, keep us updated.

Unfortunately I am still bleeding it's been 2 and a half weeks since it first started.
