Hi all. Reassuring to hear I am not the only person here with a subchorionic bleed. I was very shocked to read it on my dating scan report as I haven't experienced a single bit of bleeding throughout my entire pregnancy. I have been reassured by everyone around me that everything will be fine since I first found out and told some close friends, so I had started to believe them, considering I had had a completely uneventful pregnancy with no vomiting, just mild nausea here and there, sore boobs and all the usual stuff... Had my dating scan 3 weeks ago and the sonographer didn't report anything out of the ordinary.... And then I visit my doctor last week for my results and find out I have a subchorionic bleed. Just seeing the word "bleed" scared the hell out of me. And confused me as I haven't bled at all... And then I had to Google it because my doctor didn't give me much information about it. I'm feeling quite lost and confused to be honest. And it's taking the shine off the fact that I'll be 12 weeks pregnant tomorrow. I have been looking forward to this day since I got my BFP but now it just feels like another day. I'm still stressing. I just want to be able to fully enjoy this time but I feel robbed. I just hope that at my nucheal scan next week the bleed is gone, or at least shrunk. So I can start to enjoy my second trimester. Has anyone else been diagnosed with this condition despite having no visible bleeding? I feel a bit odd. Lucky but odd.

I had absolutely no bleeding at all despite having a haematoma with my first pregnancy. In most cases, it's absolutely nothing to worry about at all, and my dr only even bothered to mention it so I didn't freak out if I did have some bleeding. By the next scan, it had absorbed into my body, as most of them do.
I know it is scary to read such a thing on an ultrasound report, but it really shouldn't be much to worry about in the majority of cases so girls that have them, please try not to stress.

Lozandash, if you haven't bled, it's not a big deal. Lots and lots of people have them, they occur during implantation and are usually absorbed or covered up by the placenta.
AFM, I am 12 weeks and 2 days now! I can finally breathe out a little, although I am still reassured by my daily spew.
Where is everyone else up to?

Im at 11 weeks today and still spewing everyday but starting to feel a lot better during the day

Hope everyone is well!
Congratulations to Jade - great news. ( we have our scan next Thursday )
All is well this end - just wanted to ask if anyone got there NT blood results back from the Lab before the NT scan - my GP
said the results seem fine and are only for the NT specialist to understand and make sense off with the NT scan together.
Does this sound normal?? Anyone else had a different experience??
I have no reason to not believe my GP as she is great but my inquisitiveness has the better of me.
Thanks for your thoughts on this.
Have a good night and good luck to everyone!

I saw my midwife today and had my first prenatal work up. Got to hear our little beans heartbeat on the doppler too which was a healthy 178 bpm. So exciting!
10 weeks 4 days today. Still feeling tired and sick pretty much full time. Anyone else experiencing heatrburn?? Joined and had my first prenatal yoga class tonight which was also exciting. My DH and I have started to toss 'names'around. We wont be finding out the gender so planning to pick 2 or 3 combos for each (if we can agree that is!) and name baby once he/she is born.
How do I go about joining the facebook page? Would it show up on my profile? We have told our immediate families but want to wait another couple of weeks before we put it out to the world so to speak.
How is everyone else going? Any name discussions? Anyone planning to find out gender? Such an exciting time and I look forward to sharing it with you al!

Had my NT scan today.. Baby measuring at 70.0mm.. Lady said everything looks perfect. 1 in 3,500 chance of Down's syndrome (not sure if that's good or not?)
They put my new due date at 3/12/13 - 3 days earlier! Woohoo. It looked so much more like a baby today. I could see little hands & legs. So cute!!!

It's been lovely reading everyone's updates - so much I can relate to!
I had my NT scan today and it was such a relief to see and hear that baby is healthy and strong.
Thought I'd just clocked over into week 12 but it turns out I'm 12w6d, so due date has been brought forward to 5 December. 1 in 1200 chance of Down Syndrome here, but given I am in my late 30's my OBGYN advised that is a great result.
Morning sickness has pretty much subsided now, and even though I'm still quite tired by late afternoon I'm starting to feel human again!

Sounds like the testing is done differently in Canada. I asked my midwife about the 12wk ultrasound/ NT scan and she said that we only test through 2 blood tests (one at 10 weeks, one at 15) and don't do the ultrasound unless you are in a 'risk category' (over 35, history of chromosomial complcations in family).
I went for my first round of blood testing today and will have to wait 5 weeks until the next and then another 2 weeks until I get my result. Fingers crossed all turns out ok for everyones babes!

I just had my 12 week NT scan this morning and was relieved to see a kicking wiggling baby on the screen with a strong heartbeat. I too have come in further along than expected - by a week and one day so am now due 1st December! Still need to wait for blood test results but so far looks good! Telling family and friends this weekend so looking forward to that.
MS and throwing up has definitely eased this week and I feel far more like myself again. Hope everyone else is feeling better too, xx

Ive had a terrible day. Went on my merry way to work after the usual morning chuck. Then at about 10.45 ended up in the bathroom with profuse bleeding (11 weeks 5 days today). had bloods done and in internal exam and although it looks as though my cervix is closed they said the bleeding not a good sign. Back to the hospital in the morning for an ultrasound. Im so scared, after two and a half years of trying and starting IVF 6 months ago i thought this was the one. Now im left wondering whether this pregnancy is still viable or not. Feeling a little depressed atm Meant to have my 12 week NT scan on Monday and was planning to announce the news on Tuesday
