I just found out today that I have a 2 cm hematoma at almost 15 wks along. I have been bleeding now for almost 2 weeks. I have episodes of heavy bleeding, but I am always spotting. I have horrible sharp pains in my lower belly and I thought I was having contractions. My doctor does not seem too concerned. She told me that most of these heal up on their own and it poses no risk to the baby. I am still concerned. I read some other posts and it doesn't seem harmless. Any thoughts?

tcanthony, I have had a hematoma during this pregnancy (I'm 20w5d) and my previous pregnancy (I have a 13 month old daughter). I know how worried you must be, I know that I was terrified both times. Luckily, the hematoma did resolve on it's own during both pregnancies. My doctor say that was would monitor the bleed by doing an ultrasound every two weeks, but it is not as serious as it sounds unless the hematoma is very large. With this pregnancy, it went away by 14 weeks. And with my daughter it was gone by 18 weeks. If you're feeling really nervous about it (which I know I felt that way too) ask your doctor to monitor it closely just for your peace of mind.
