Sub chorionic hemorrhages... WTAF

This post doesn’t have a sad ending, but content warning as I’m going to be a little graphic and I had a really scary night last night.

Would love to hear about others experiences with SCHs as this was intense and has left me and my wife a bit dazed. This post is a little bit of me trying to process my night because I still have no idea how to feel about it.

So around 2:30am last night I was woken up by what felt like watery discharge. This hasn’t been out of the norm for me because that’s what the progesterone suppositories had done to me every night previously, and this was just my first night without them, so I hadn’t worn a pad to bed. I got up to change underwear and put a pantyliner in to catch the rest.

I got to the bathroom and it was bright red blood and quite a bit more than it felt like at first. I yelled for my wife to wake up and she came and saw me standing there and we knew immediately we needed to go to the ER. It had completely soaked and ruined my underwear, left a puddle in the sheets, and it was running down my legs. Classic traumatic pregnancy bleeding that set me to low-level crying while trying to clean myself up and talk myself through steps of getting dressed and out the door to the hospital.

We went to the hospital 25 minutes away instead of the closest, thinking that because that’s the one with the women’s center (that I’ll give birth at), that maybe it was the better option. The whole ride I’m feeling like an idiot for telling everyone about my pregnancy last week and that I’m having twins when now none of that looked so sure anymore, and it was only 9 weeks.

I spent nearly 6 hours sitting in the ER waiting room, because they had no beds available. Luckily, with how they handled triage, they went ahead and did blood work and ordered an ultrasound and didn’t wait until I had a bed (which I never got).

The ultrasound was a mixed bag of emotions. Frustratingly, the way the two babies are positioned in there, you can get an obvious and clear picture on Baby A right away, and the sac for Baby B looks empty (because it’s only the top) and you have to dig around at weird angles to see them. That first image felt like my heart dropped, it felt like I had seen a picture of my second gone and I freaked a little. Luckily, the ultrasound tech (even though she wasn’t allowed to tell me anything) calmed me down and reaffirmed that this wasn’t bad AT ALL and then she dug around to actually get a picture of Baby B.

'The association of maternal factors with delayed implantation and the initial rise of urinary human chorionic gonadotrophin.' TW: Study on chemical pregnancy relating to late implantation.

So I recently had a devastating chemical pregnancy, so of course I had to read everything I could about it. My first positive HCG test was a faint line at 15DPO....what most people's look like at 11DPO or so. About 3 days later it started to get lighter and by 21DPO it was gone. I have linked the article in case anyone is bored and wants to give it a read...apparently there could be some correlation between late implantation and early pregnancy loss.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3057753/

I originally chalked the faint line up to FF having my ovulation date wrong, but this actually makes more sense. My chart was pretty textbook with the temp spike and the CM signs.

Anyway I figured someone would like to read so I figured I'd share.

TX, 36F | How to get insurance to cover potentially-elective diagnostic prenatal testing (amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling)?

I am in TX, 36F, with BCBS PPO. I am pregnant and want to have diagnostic prenatal testing (amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling). I am 12 weeks and have not had any testing thus far prompt a recommendation for diagnostic testing, but I want to take advantage of all science has to offer in ensuring we give a baby the best start possible.

My consultation with the MFM specialist is this week. In setting my appointment, his office couldn’t tell me what I would owe if I underwent testing and had to pay for it out of pocket.

Given that my OB m’s lab charged my insurance $12,000 for bloodwork at my 6-week appointment, I’m terrified to imagine what my responsibility could be for diagnostic testing. Granted, my EOB showed some massive discount that significantly reduced BCBS’s and my responsibility to pay, respectively. But those discounts are a mystery. If I had to pay all of the out of pocket, would it still have been $12,000!!?!

Please help me understand if there’s anything I, my OB, or the MFM doc can do to trigger coverage of diagnostic testing.

Sub chorionic hemorrhage/Yeast. I would really appreciate any advice!!

Here is the timeline-

Last Sunday-Monday I had some yellow mucusy discharge. They asked me to come in for a swab and the doctor said it looked fine but noticed a little bit of yeast. I could start monistat in a week if it still bothered me but should go away on its own.

Tuesday- 13 week chromosome screening- baby was perfect, they noticed a very small subchorionic hemorrhage that I also had at 5 1/2 weeks. They said it wouldn’t be a problem because it’s by the cervix and would either come out or absorb.

Thursday- peed and wiped what looked like orange pee. My prenatal makes my urine neon yellow so it’s hard to tell what I’m wiping. I didn’t know if it was blood mixed in or what. I called and they said it could be irritation from the yeast.

Saturday- last night I peed and noticed a lot more orange. It was not discharge, it was wet. I noticed a little bit more this morning when I woke up and peed. I haven’t noticed any since then. It really comes and goes.

I don’t know if I should just be letting this go if it’s due to the yeast or the subchorionic hemorrhage but it makes me so nervous. I don’t feel like it’s normal. I want to call again and just determine what it is but each time I’ve called they have said it’s due to something that’s not serious. I would seriously appreciate any advice.

My experience with CVS (chorionic villus sampling)

My husband and I traveled to a major city to have the procedure done. We are located in Western Canada. The test is only done on Wednesday at this particular hospital.

You must be at the minimum 10 weeks 3 days along. We chose to go at 11 weeks 5 days so there was a higher chance of obtaining a sample.

We arrived at the hospital at 8:45am and sat in a waiting room filling out a release form, general 'you are aware of the procedure and risks'. We were met by a lovely nurse who took us into a meeting room and explained the procedure with great detail, ensuring we are aware of what is about to happen, and that sometimes getting a sample isn't possible based on the location of the placenta that day.

The doctor joined us, and almost quizzed me to make sure I was paying attention to the previous nurse. It was greatly appreciated, and anything I wasn't clear on was explained.

CVS can be done either transvaginal or through the abdomen with a needle. They prefer, and usually aim for transvaginal, however this is greatly determined by the location of the placenta.

We then went into a room where an ultrasound is done to check on the baby and locate the placenta. It was determined that if they could straighten my cervix that they could potentially obtain a sample transvaginally.

The next part was like a pap smear, but with more pressure and a bit more uncomfortable, I suspect this is because they needed a straight route to the placenta.

The entire time the ultrasound tech is keeping an internal eye on things, I had anticipated being able to feel the tool collecting placenta but felt nothing. You can watch it all happen on the screen, which was fascinating. It never touched the baby, or even came close.

I watched the tool exit with a pinkish glob that was carefully placed into a tube with some liquid. It was placed under a microscope and we got to take a look at placenta up close! It looked like a really thick clump of spider web, with veins in it. They did another ultrasound immediately afterwards for a heartbeat check, the baby was squirming and jumping around a lot so it took a minute to get an accurate check. All was well.

I needed a rhogam shot afterwards, we left at 10am. All in all much better than I had anticipated, painless and quick. Results (for my specific case) will take upwards of 4 weeks, although I think normally it takes 8-10 days. The RAD took a day and a half, which includes the gender. We are holding off on this unti

Chorionic Hematoma at 5 weeks, 5 days

Hi everyone! My husband and I found out we were expecting our rainbow baby 2 weeks ago. Since then I’ve had very light brown spotting my doctor told me not to worry unless it turned bright red and heavy. This morning, I woke up and as I was getting ready I noticed a sharp shooting pain and went to the bathroom and saw a lot of bright red blood. I was able to go to the doctor this morning and got an ultrasound. Baby was measuring right as they should (actually measuring a little ahead at 6 weeks) and the ultrasound tech showed us the tiniest flicker of a heartbeat. My doctor said that she saw a Chorionic Hematoma and that baby was looking good so far. She said that the hematoma increases the chances of a miscarriage ever so slightly. I don’t have any cramping or back pain right now, just bleeding. While I was glad to have a good report from the doctor, I’m also still really nervous about everything because I haven’t had many pregnancy symptoms (but I had positive doubling betas last week). I just wanted to know if any of you have experienced anything like this and had any positive stories or things that I need to be on the lookout for. Thank you!!

Two losses, questions about abnormal chorionic villi

Hello,

I went through two miscarriages last year. One had a heartbeat of 78 at 8 weeks gestation, but by 9 weeks the heartbeat was gone. The second loss had no heartbeat at 7 weeks. I had D&C's following each loss. The doctors also tested the products of conception following the losses. The reports showed "patchy abnormal villous morphology: Sections examined from the specimen labeled "products of conception" show gestational tissue including placental site tissue, inflamed decidua and scant decidualized endometrium, and chorionic villi. The chorionic villi show a variable appearance with many showing enlargement due to edematous stromal change and irregular villous outlines. A p57 immunostain highlights villous trophoblastic tissue and stroma with appropriately reacting controls."

FISH testing was performed and no abnormalities were found.

Does anyone have any information about the abnormal villous morphology found? My doctor didn't have much to say about it and I can't find anything on the web.

Antenatal (Prenatal) Testing (Screening) versus Chorionic Villus Sampling

Edit: Thank you so much to everyone who responded! I was able to talk to the doctor's office who is doing the test this morning and this first test that I am doing is just a sonogram and blood work. It will looking at my blood proteins and make sure the placenta is developing normally. They will also be looking for (I think they said markers but I'm not sure) Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome), Trisomy 18 (Edwards' syndrome) and Trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome) in addition to be looking at the Nuchal Translucency (NT) with the sono. Of course they told me how long the appointment was going to take but I already forgot. Anyway, they will be recommending that I do an NITP afterwards. I tried to just book that appointment anyway because I know I want to do it but the office I'm going to doesn't do it that way. Oh well, at least I have a couple of weeks to earn some more leave.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Hi Everyone!

So my OB gave me an order for antenatal testing and at first I was all down with it but now I'm not sure. From what I've read the Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS) is also recommended for women over 35, which I am, and normally happens around the same time. I was wondering if anyone here has done both or thinks that one is more complete than the other.

I have pretty good primary and secondary insurance but I also have limited leave to go to all of these appointments and I am just wondering if I should just skip the antenatal and ask for a referral for CVS.

Just to note, I did ask my OB what she thought but I would like some other opinions as well. Thanks so much!

I'm trying not to go online and research because I don't know what is real info and stats and not. Had a super small hemorrhage last week confirmed via ultrasound. I had a small amount of brown spotting. But overnight and this morning I'm having even more. I'm trying not to freak out since I'm not having any cramping. Currently at 12 weeks today and have my ob work up tomorrow. So trying to hold out till then. I've had a miscarriage before so I know what that feels like as a comparison.

I lost my baby girl Athena when she was 23weeks, due to placenta abruption and a sub chorionic hemorrhage in my uterus. Every time I look at my husband I see her beautiful face and I feel like I want to cry.

I had every symptom possible for a pregnancy, the vomiting was the worst. I’m so heartbroken and every time I look at my husband I see my baby girl. She had his eyes, his nose and eyebrows. So now I feel like I avoid looking at my husband. His eyes were one of the things I loved but now it just makes me sad.. am I wrong for not wanting to be around him as much. How do I deal with that. My daughter is so beautiful and when I held her I wasn’t as sad as I thought. I cried tears of joy because of how beautiful she looked. And now when I look at her photos I feel a big emptiness in my heart. I miss her so much and it makes it harder because I feel resentful towards my step sister. Her baby boy will be born 5 days after my baby girl was supposed to arrive. And it’s possible he could be born the day she was originally supposed to be born and it makes it that much harder for me to be around her pregnancy. We were going to have our baby showers the same week and now it will just be her having the baby shower. I feel so lost without Athena. I had everything ready for when she got here. The moment we found out she was a girl we got everything, we basically didn’t even need gifts for the baby shower. We were ready for her, and now she’s gone... yeah I could try for another baby but I know my body may never be able to support another pregnancy as this will be my third miscarriage along with D&C because my uterus never released the placentas so I don’t want to try for another just to have them token from me again. How do we woman handle and deal also live with situations like these. I feel like I have no more plans for life, I feel very lost.

HCG (human Chorionic Gonadrotropin) Use and Proper Storage

One of the main issues faced with the use of anabolics is the reduction of natural testosterone production of the human body while on cycle and the importance of recovering that natural production once anabolics have been discontinued. The use of anabolics effects the hypothalamic pituitary testicular axis (HPTA) which is the system of organs (the gonads, pituitary gland, and hypothalamus) that regulate testosterone production. The hypothalamus releases a hormone (GnRH), the pituitary gland releases the luteinizing hormone (LH) and the follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), and the gonads produce estrogen and testosterone. These processes are all linked. The GnRH is produced to release LH and FSH from the pituitary which in turn stimulate the production of testosterone from the gonads. In males LH is the main stimulant of testosterone production while the FSH is in charge of sperm production. The body has a negative feedback loop that regulates the release of these hormones based on the amount of available testosterone in the system. When the body sees there is sufficient levels of the hormone the HPTA regulates the amount of LH to be released, lowering the secretion of it. With the use of anabolic steroids, the body comes to that point fairly quickly and shuts down LH production, giving us our issue with recovery and a need for post cycle therapy drugs that stimulate LH production.

In anabolic users, hCG (human Chorionic Gonadrotropin) is used to combat the shutdown of LH. hCG mimics the luteinizing hormone (LH) allowing for the user to stimulate the testes for testosterone production, solving the issue of shutdown when on an anabolic cycle or testosterone replacement therapy. hCG is usually prescribed by doctors for testosterone replacement therapy patients or found on the black market for anabolic steroid users. The use of hCG can reduce the recovery time of post cycle therapy since the testes never actually shut down while on cycle. Since studies have shown that the use of testosterone can greatly reduce the natural testosterone levels of the user post cycle, hCG is a valuable tool in recovery and also a valuable tool for maintaining fertility while on trt. In order for post cycle recovery of LH function to occur, your androgenic hormones have to come to a state of balance again by lowering to a level the HPTA is comfortable with, for a lack of better words.

The ideal way to use hCG on cycle is to start with your cycle at 250iu twice a week. I have see

Immature Chorionic Villi? TW- loss and D&C

I had a MMC at 10 weeks (embryo measured 8 weeks 4 days) and after two rounds of cytotec, I had a D&C on Monday, January 27, for retained tissue. Lucky for me, that tissue included some placental tissue, and the lab identified immature chorionic villi. Upon researching this, it looks like it is just one of those things that can happen but is linked to diabetes. I do have PCOS. I had a great A1C last time it was checked (5.3) but that was a few years ago. I am going to call my doctor and get a check up and see where that is now. I have taken 1000mg of metformin for years and wasn’t told to stop while pregnant. I have had 4 losses total- two CP’s, a MC at 6 weeks (hcg never rose above 350), and this MMC. My hcg at 6 weeks 5 days this time was over 30,000 so we were shocked to go in at 10 weeks 1 day and see she was gone. I practically begged my doctor to test my progesterone and supplement after I spotted on several occasions, but he refused, so i have no idea what those levels were. My question is, could low progesterone cause this issue? Did you experience this and, if so, what did your doctor say about it? Was there anything you had to do differently or was this just an unfortunate flip of the coin?

Great Regenerative Medicine Earnings Play/Investment Opportunity! Mimedx (MDXG)

My largest holding reports earnings this week with a conference call Thursday morning before Market open. Mimedx has developed Best in Class advanced wound care products from dehydrated human amnion chorion membrane (dHACM) derived from donated placental tissue. With respect to Advanced wound care applications, these products are used to care for difficult to heal diabetic foot ulcers/venous foot ulcers, and for the repair of surgical and other hard to heal wounds (including amputations, dental extractions, and for healing burns without or with only minimal scarring). Reimbursement for Mimedx advanced wound care products was recently approved by the nation's largest commercial payor, United Health.

Mimedx is a turnaround play, with an entirely new Board and Management and their Advanced wound care products with 85% gross margins are alone worth the price of admission. But the real potential gamechanger for this company is its micronized injectable products for the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. Phase IIb trial for knee osteoarthritis and Phase III trial for plantar fasciitis are underway with data expected soon. All indications are that the data will show meaningful efficacy with no adverse risks. Other potential indications include shoulders, elbows, hips, etc. Medically, this is an area of great unmet need and Mimedx's Amniofix Injectable product has been given Regenerative Medicine Advanced Therapy (RMAT) designation status by the FDA wifh the potential to speed up the approval process. The potential market for these products, if approved, is in the billions annually.

Again, 1st quarter earnings and conference call for any updates on the injectable product approval process is on Thursday. Mimedx is currently trading just above its 50 day moving average of $10.43 and today's pullback may be a great opportunity for a trade or long-term investment entry point, with a stop limit set below the 50 day moving average (give it a little room or you may be stopped out early). Cherrs and good luck!

At home doplar helps or doesn’t?

I have had a long road to get to this point in our pregnancy. Years of fertility treatments, two miscarriages, then after I thought was a smooth pregnancy a large Sub chorionic hemorrhage that gave us a very scary ER visit after the large bleed.

So here I am, Thursday will be 14 weeks. Every time I go to see the dr I feel so much better after seeing the baby and strong heart beat. Then after a few days the worry and doubts start creeping back in. Even though... everything seems to be fine.

I’m thinking about getting an in home doplar. I feel like if I heard the heart beat every morning it would put me in a better mood for the day.

But I’m not experienced. If I had trouble finding it would I be even more anxious?

Thoughts and experiences? And if you do recommend one... brands?

EDIT: Thank you everyone for your responses! This was so helpful. After reading and gathering my thoughts I think I will get one, but I will wait till I'm a little farther along. Maybe in 2 weeks when im 16w. Thank you again!!!

Experience with bleeding/possible sub chorionic hematoma/hemorrhage? (TW)

Hi all,

I'm currently 13+4 and I've experienced a lot of bleeding throughout this pregnancy. I'm interested in hearing stories from others who have similar experiences.

First bout of bleeding began right around 7 weeks - daily spotting up to 9 weeks and then a heavy bleed with small clots. I had an ultrasound done at both 7 and 9 weeks (first was routine, second was at ER due to heavy bleed). No SCH was found and both times the baby had strong heartbeat and was growing.

I went about 3 weeks with no bleeding, and then I started spotting again on Friday. Went in on Monday for doppler and we heard a strong heartbeat! I left feeling better and mostly resigned to the idea that I may just bleed throughout this pregnancy...

Yesterday while at work, I felt a sudden rush of fluid and went to the bathroom to find that the blood had soaked into my underwear (no longer considered spotting). No clots but I called the office and they brought me in for another doppler. Heartbeat was still strong, but she said I should stay home today and rest as much as possible for the weekend.

Basically, we don't really have any answers. They keep saying it could be SCH but they haven't seen that on US. Reading about SCH is horrifying because some information says 50/50. If it's not that, she said some women just bleed and they don't really know why.

Any information or stories would be helpful - whether they have a happy ending or not.

Tumor producing Human chorionic gonadotrop Squamous Cell carcinoma of the tongue.

My wife just passed at age 43 from SCC of the tongue. The tumor was producing HCG hormone and in my research online, I have only found 2 cases of tongue SCC producing this hormone. Has any oncologist here lurking ever seen this?
