I had one of those bleeding areas. Not as severe as what you are describing - but it didn't stop the pregnancy. I think about those women who think they have their period all 9 months and don't realize they are pregnant. There are a lot of women out there with viable pregnancies that bleed.

Oh Carmela, I am just SO sorry :( Maybe it *would* help to maybe stop by your EC board? Maybe it would help give you some hope? In any case, I think you *do* need to try to get it out somewhere whether it be online or to someone in IRL. Holding all the fear in is SO terrible...You know you're more than welcome to private msg me anytime!

I'm so sorry you are going thru this. I have been a nervous wreck since I got my bfp. I think its really hard to relax and enjoy pregnancy when you have a history of losses and I'm sure the spotting doesnt help.I'm keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. I hope your pregnancy progresses well and you can eventually relax.

Carmela, I'm so sorry you're still going through all of this. I can imagine how frustrated and scared you are. I, too, suffer from horrible anxiety and I can only imagine how scared I would be in your situation. I also hear you on the money worries, too. I worry about that all the time - how we would make ends meet if something devastating happened to the income that we're currently bringing in.

I'm with Michelle and Dustie - if you need someone to talk to, please send me a message. I'm thinking of you and praying for you and your little one. Sending lots of (((HUGS)))

Carmela I am so very sorry, it isn't fair, we have been through enough, we shouldn't have to go through anymore once we get that BFP. I can't believe they cannot tell you what the bleeding is from, what kind of Dr. is this? Just a regular OB? Isn't there a specialist you could go to? Please keep us updated, and I will keep you in my prayers.

Carmela, I'm sorry you're having such a hard time. I don't post here a lot anymore since I've been graduated for a long time, but I read here a lot hoping to see lots of BFP's since I think of all of you ladies often and the amazing support I received when I was here.

Anyways, I wanted to offer you some support because I had the exact same thing in my PAL pregnancy. It was a subchorionic hemorrhage. Mine was actively bleeding for weeks and weeks and weeks. It didn't clot up and organize for a long time so I know what you're going through. I didn't have my first big bleed until 14 weeks (I don't know how far along you are) but then bled daily - like lots of bleeding - until 27 weeks when the bleed finally organized and started to clot. It then disappeared a few weeks after that. I was on bed rest from 14 weeks until 27 weeks and then modified bed rest until delivery. It was scary and so nerve wracking to see all of that blood and be worried about the baby, but it turned out perfectly fine!

I joined an online group of women who all had SCH and the good news is that in the vast majority of cases things turn out well. I know I can't take away your fear or anxiety, but I wanted you to know you're not alone and what you're feeling is really normal. My best advice is to try to take one day at a time and focus on the positives. I know it is hard to do - especially early on. At 14 weeks on strict bedrest thinking that I had 26 weeks left of the pregnancy it seemed overwhelming and impossible, but I took it one day at a time and now it seems like forever ago.

Take care of yourself and feel free to PM me if you want to talk or need some support.
