it can mean that you have a low lying placenta .... but it all depends upon when you did your ultrasound if its around 22 weeks you still have time and things will get better ... for more details or in case of any bleeding consult your gynecologist.

Usually unprotected loveual contact just before the periods carries less risk of pregnancy if the periods are regular.The periods can be delayed due to various reasons as hormonal fluctuation,stress,anxiety,drug intake if any etc. The periods might start soon but if thay do not start even after a week then get a Urine test done for pregnancy determnation.

hi rebecca, if your planning for a pregnancy then its good...any ways you dont have to panick...i guess its more of suspicion that are causing these symptoms...just relax and wait for your periods..look for implantation bleeding in between this time dats a definite sign of pregnancy...sometimes it does take time to get a positive test when its early ...after your date wait for a week then take a test....

yes its quite possible, you need to take care about all the precautions for keeping clean to avoid any infections, proper diet and medicines...you do have a higher risk of pre mature birth cause of which you might not have a normal delivery so as of now just keep a track and stay healthy...

hi nicole, subchorionic hemorages are not a good news since you alredy have one placental disruption...these can lead to placental disruption and emergency c section that you got once..these hemorages are analysed according to their size and location ..if there is still visible blood then these are dangerous in 1st trimester...if you were able to keep the pregnancy till next trimester than chances are less for complications furthur.as these can be dangerous for both of you, do as your doc says...till then keep a positive attitude, eat well, dont stress yourself and keep healthy...
