    I had an ultrasound yesterday and everything looked fine to me and the us tech said all looked good. Well she lied my Dr called me today once she got the results and said there was a large bleed near the baby so while the heartbeat was 170 there still is a large chance of miscarriage. She says there is nothing to but continue on as a normal pregnancy unless I see blood then phone her. How can I continue on when I feel like any move will have me bleeding? I wish she never told me now i have to be stressed out. Anyone ever experienced this before? I don't know how to live normal with this info. Dont want to bring anyone down or scare anyone just want some advice maybe. Thanks

    Didn't want to read and run, I would try and take it as easy as possible. I know it's scary but try not to stress too much. Hopefully all will be fine

    What a poor show from your gp. Of course you are going to be stressed with what little information you have. I would certainly feel exactly the same.

    Anyone can be referred to a specialist. I would start by asking your gp for a referral to a consultant. Most likely a gynaecologist (check with your midwife). You need answers because you just can't be expected to go through your pregnancy worrying about something like this.

    Does it happen often, if so, why?
    Is it likely you will bleed at some point and if you do will the baby be OK?
    Can you maintain normal activity?
    Will the blood cause any harm to baby?

    You need answers really. Gps are often so vague, but the small amount they do know can often leave us full of concern when actually it could be something and nothing.

    One thing to mention to you is that people who are considered "high risk" in pregnancy are normally referred to a consultant. If you haven't been offered that then I can only assume it isn't high risk but it is definitely worth checking.

    Wishing you all the very best. Easier said than done but try not to worry because that won't do you any good either.

    Take care xxx

    I went for a scan at 9 weeks due to bleeding which was off and on. They told me I had an 11mm mass of blood next to baby which was causing the bleeding. I was told not to worry though - hard when I had miscarried my first baby. I won't tell you not to worry but I would go with the US technician as they see this every day. The Dr could have just been sent your notes and NOT been informed by the hospital maybe?

    Unfortunately sonographers aren't really allowed to give results out when they do scans but they usually do when it's obstetrics, I would take it easy if I was you and maybe ring your midwife for some advice x

    I'm really sorry you're going through this, how stressful! How far along were you and where did you have the ultrasound? I would request your gp refer you to your lcal EPU and you request to see a consultant there, we've found ours very knowledgeable and helpful I really hope everything works out fine xx

    That really is very poor from your GP. I can't understand how you were allowed to leave your ultrasound without a consultant speaking with you if there was a significant issue. Your GP is not a specialist in pregnancy or ultrasounds by any stretch of the imagination. I would ring your midwife or the antenatal ward and ask about getting an appointment with a consultant. Leaving you hanging like this really isn't fair. I really hope all goes well for you. I've been told some right things by my old GP before which turned out to be false xxx

    Emma_85 and HannahMassey14 I also think this is in poor taste for her to just drop something so HEAVY on me and then say continue like its a normal Pregnancy, How can I, I'm scared to move. I just keep thinking ok the worst and how can I not when she said there a large chance of miscarriage. This is such agony and I shouldn't have to suffer like this.
    I'm 10+1, high risk because I'm 36 and suffered from high blood pressure in the past. Currently I have no pain and blood pressure is fine. But with the that phone call I'm super stressed. Thanks ladies for the replies I wish you all healthy and Happy pregnancies.

    A lot of women have this kind of bleed in the first 12 weeks but never know about it if they do not have an early scan...and by the 12 week scan it is usually re-absorbed or greatly reduced in size.

    I had one before but I only had a scan after already getting spotting - the bleed was between the baby and the uterine lining and I was given a 50% chance of miscarriage. I wasn't told to do anything different. But on reading up about subchorionic haemorrage it says bedrest is recommended and no lifting, no sex etc etc.....

    I would take things easy and keep hydrated and try to keep positive - when is your next scan?

    I had a bleed and went to epau for a scan. They saw a bleed and said it could either come out or my body could absorb it. Did they say how big it was? They also said they don't really know a cause (though i think sex caused my initial bleed) but said it could be the baby moving around and disturbing the lining of the uterus. It's so hard i know, I'm really stressed and hoping to speak to my consultant tomorrow, I'll let you know if he says anything worthwhile :( xxx

    When I had my scan at 6/7 weeks I was also told there was a bleed but the midwife said it would either be reabsorbed or I would bleed but not to be worried about it. She played it down and I thought nothing of it to be honest. I'm 14 weeks now and haven't bled, all looked fine at 12 week scan. Sorry yours was handled so badly I hope you are OK and everything is fine. Sounds like a really good strong heartbeat which I've always heard is main thing. Take care xx

    I had a massive bleed near baby after an early scan due to bleeding and I bled bad not long after went back for another scan and all was fine they couldn't see the bleeding sac anymore. Brooke is now 10 months old too and as much trouble as she was when I first found out I was pregnant xx

    I don't frequent this site much but thought I would say thank you to all the well wishers and I would update my progress since these post don't go/delete themselves. If some of you are wondering what happened in my case: I am well I'm 32+4 weeks with no sign of blood internal or external. I was worried for a couple of months for nothing. I will update again after birth. Blessings to all.
