Is anyone in the know about this?
I've had my early scan today, saw baby and heartbeat, was amazing, and the lady briefly mentioned this thing, she said it was a clot and I might end up with some bleeding. I hadn't heard of it so didn't ask much about it.
So I've got home and I just looked it up, and it's scared me. I looked at the report she gave me and It says 'a 12x11x5 subchorionic haematoma was detected inferior to the gestation sac.' I have no idea if this is cm or mm. From what i've read if its cm then it would be really bad. If mm not so bad. I've tried calling them but I can't get through to the right lady, and noone else can tell me.
H has shouted at me for looking it up, but I couldn't help it, I was worried.
Any advice/info? Thanks x

I am 99.9999999999% sure that its NOT cm chick, it has to be mm.

they always measure in mm. When I had an early scan baby measured 7 and I had a cyst measuring 41x38x36. Other things being there is scary but try not to stress x

Thanks ladies. I'm waiting for a call back now to just double check x

I think it's just that - a clot that can because when egg is trying to implant in uterus - almost an aggitation to the lining of the womb. It will almost certainly be mm as from what I remember at my 6 week early scan the baby was only about 6mm? Your uterus wouldn't even be 12x11x5cm yet. As she said expect bleeding but try your best not to worry as its no good for our bp, speak to them tomorrow to put your mind at ease but the fact you've got a baby and a hb is great!

Just wanted to say that I'm so pleased that you saw your baby and listened to it's heartbeat OB xx Like everyone else has said, almost sure they would measure in mm, not CM x

Me!!! Iv had one!!
Measured in mm but try not to panic because the scan is 2 d so they aren't getting a full picture of it iykwim, you may have got scanned later that day and it been
A totally different measurement.
I bled LOADS with Isaac from 7 weeks till 18 weeks. My bleed was huge will up load photo something like 50mmx 20 or something ridiculous like that.
My consultant said that I'd to phone Epu of the bleed changed at all as thre was a risk that I could bleed and take the baby with it iykwim but he said if I wasn't bleeding he wouldn't be concerned by a sub chorionic haematoma until third fri when oxygen supply to lo can be affected and it can lead to early delivery. The biggest issue was that I bled. You aren't bleeding are you? If you do bleed phone Epu and the will scan you but a lot of women have SCH and don't bleed. Mines just absorbed itself around 18 weeks, my consultant said if it had been there at 20 week scan I'd be scanned regularly and they would check placental blood flow and if any distress in third fri they would deliver but all was fine by 18 weeks. Hopefully yours will just re absorb itself
Glad all was ok with baby, try not to worry

Sorry it's upside down but you can see baby then what should be above it is a large clot of blood

Thanks everyone! I've had the call, she confirmed it is mm and she said it was in the best place to have one (whatever that means!).
CP, no I haven't had any bleeding! Thanks for sharing your picture, you're right it's a big area! Thanks for all the info too, much more reassuring than the general Internet!
I haven't put a pic up have I! Hang on x

Sorry it's sideways! Actually, is that the haematoma to the right?!
No idea why it's posted twice!!

Firstly congratulations - I never knew you'd had a bfp!
And try not to worry. I had an SCH with ethan - first picked up on scan after I had a brown bleed at 8 weeks. I was warned I'd probably see further bleeding, and at 10 weeks I got a bright red bleed. Its scary, but you at least know the cause x
