I have a sch 1.5 CM and I am so worried about my pregnancy. Is that considered small at this point or should im worry. Why does this happen?

I have a sch 1.5 CM and I am so worried about my pregnancy. Is that considered small at this point or should im worry. Why does this happen?

Think positive.: Subchorionic hemorrhage happens and yes, it is one of the most anxiety-provoking phenomenons of early pregnancy.

Spotting is likely, expect it, but may not mean much. Best of luck.
