Some might remember I started bleeding at 8w5d and was told I had a sub-chorionic hematoma (clot). That was last Tues 19/06. I’ve had 2 very heavy bleeds since then (soaking a pad in a matter of minutes), and in between it’s very stop/start ranging from pink, bright red, to dark red and very thick brown. I have been off sick this week, resting and generally trying to do all the right things hoping it heals or is absorbed. It sometimes stops for a day or 2 then starts again! I’ve had 3 scans and every time the baby has been fine, wriggling and (according to the doctor) even kicking! But it’s such a stress seeing the blood all the time, not knowing what to do for the best - sometimes just an hour round the shops can start it again. It’s constantly hanging over us that I could have a heavy gush at any time, or worse something awful happen to baby.
I am going mad!! Not really looking for any advice as such, guess I just needed to offload and maybe hear some positive outcomes - I am now 10w1d and have a horrible feeling this could be ongoing throughout my pregnancy. What did people do in those cases, how do you continue with normal life, still going to functions, doing stuff etc, instead of wrapping yourself in cotton wool?
Thanks everyone xx
