In brief: SCH

SCH (subchorionic hematomas) are very common findings in early pregnancy.
The often cause bleeding. Although the rate of miscarriage is higher in most cases things turn out fine. It is a small blood collection behind the placenta. The blood is either reabsorbed or it drains out. Typically a follow up sonogram is done over the next few weeks to confirm.
