My Husband and I are working on planning our 3 pregnancy but since our last pregnancy was complicated by a blood clot in my placenta(she's fine but she was early at 34 weeks and IUGR).
I just have lots of questions about what having a clotting disorder means for becoming pregnant. I understand that they usually put you on a blood thinner but they didn't say when in the pregnancy or what blood thinner?
I really wonder if this means anything different for my c-sections? All it seemed to mean last time was that they made me keep the compression boots on while sleeping because I was up and walking a lot.
Do they take any other precautions? Did the blood thinners work to keep you from clotting well enough? Does it do anything to the baby,like they have to watch them after birth or something?
Sorry I just have a million questions after they found that blood clot during my surgery. I kind of narrowly dodged that part of my placenta separating and it was even partially in the membranes so it would have started to come away had they ruptured.
