How do blood clots form? I'm 35 weeks pregnant and I take heparin to thin my blood along with baby aspirin. I remember my doctor telling me to be careful about bumping my legs and things, but not sure if that was just because of brusing. Well I got hit pretty hard on the side on my knee, is that something that can lead to a blood clot?Answer Question

I meant to say that "blood thinners" don't actually "thin" the blood. What it does is it disrupts the clotting cascade and slows your clotting ability down. Therefore, you are less liking to have any issues with "throwing clots" and having a dire situation.
