And...for the grand finale - a subchorionich hemorrhage the size of Texas.

Ah...so this is the real culprit behind all the bleeding. A subchorionich hemorrhage 11.4cm long, 6cm wide... Great. Just when I thought things were manageable. The only positive thing about this? It's on the opposite side of my placenta. So freaking scared.

So sorry to hear that. What have the doctors recommended you do?

Holy moly. So not a polyp then? I'm so sorry to hear that. Will you be on bedrest?

Not sure what causes it...but it's a big pocket of blood between the wall of the uterus and the amniotic sack. It could have been from a tear in the placenta at one point...and the placenta grew away from that. The bleeding started at 13 weeks, 5 days...and hasn't let up since. Lots of spotting brown and occasionally red. I just hope I make it to 26 weeks... :( The big danger? Too much exposure to blood will weaken the uterine sack, causing it to rupture prematurely.

Can you tell me what that is?
