I am new to this board and am very happy to have come across it.
Hi cookiesgal. I'm just over 20 weeks and I too have an SCH. I had a big bleed Sept 26th and spotting off and on since then. I had another scan last Tuesday and the clot was only slightly smaller.

As the previous posters have said, the way you are feeling is completely normal.
Welcome to the board, I know you'll love it there. These ladies have helped me so much. I almost 17 weeks and also have a subchorionic hematoma. I went for an ultrasound on monday, and the tech really had to look hard to find it, which is great news. She also said that at this point if they were to look that hard in every pregnancy they would find one in almost most of them. They say most clear up by 20 weeks, so theres still time.This is my 3rd pregnancy, I have 1 DD (4) and we lost our DS at 16 weeks of pregnancy this May. I was extremely scared when I started bleeding since they hadnt told me I had a SCH. We rushed to the ER and all I did was cry, since I was sure it was all over, again. There hasnt been an easy point in this pregnancy, and I dont think there will be until Im holding my LO in my arms. Im afraid we all have the same mindset once we''ve had to deal with the loss of a child, and sadly, pregnancy isnt fun and exciting anymore, its scary and stressful.'
When we found out we were expecting again, we decided to buy a home doppler, so that I could listen to the heartbeat when I wanted it. It really has helped me get through the days. Its not for everyone, but for me, its a really good investment.
I thought about buying a doppler but I would freak out if I couldn't find the heartbeat.
I'm renting a doppler from heartbeats at home and we were able to pickup the HB right away when we got it, about 17 weeks. It's been great to have. We listen every morning and sometimes if I'm feeling down or get a little anxious I'll listen for a quick minute again. Sometimes we have a hard time finding the beat but by this time, they move so much, we can hear lots of movement so it's not scary to have to search. Here's the link if you're interested =)
