Good and bad news-

First the good news:

Nombie is hanging in there. The placenta still looks like it's firmly attached. HB was 174bpm, and measuring alright. Nombie even twitched an arm for us during the ultrasound. So that's good.

Now the bad news:

The clot hasn't changed in size. It's good that it hasn't gotten bigger, but it's already REALLY big and it hasn't gotten any smaller at all. I'm going to stay on bed rest, and we need to follow up on Tuesday.



Obviously still at risk for miscarriage. My doctor seems cautiously optimistic that it will dissolve eventually, and feels good about the placement of the clot relative to Nombie... I can't share her cautious optimism. I've known women who have lost their pregnancies because of subchronic hematomas... so I know it's a possibility. I can hope for the best, but I don't expect anything (good or bad). I'm just going to keep doing everything I can, and keep waiting this out.

I'm so glad that Nombie is doing well, and that the clot hasn't grown in size. Continuing to send good thoughts and prayers your way. Please take it easy!

Praying hard for you and your little Nombie. I know it won't make the fear go away but have you read Kristin from Once A Mother. She had a large subchorionic hematoma and made it through a twin pregnancy despite that.

Kristin, no I haven't. I'll have to look her up.

I am thinking of you three. I am so thankful your little one is hanging in, and I am so sorry that you have that evil clot. If there is anything I can do to help entertain you on bedrest, let me know.

I've been checking here all day to make sure Nombie is OK. I'm so glad you got good news there. I'm just keeping praying and thinking and hoping that SCH goes away.

I'm hoping that it will dissolve. Thinking of you and wishing you good health for you and Nombie.

Still praying for you guys!

Your predicament reminded me of another blogger who dealt with a SCH early in her pregnancy if you are interested:
