Anyone else with a clot?

Our first u/s was on Thursday (6 weeks, 3 days) but doc told us I have a blood clot in my uterus.

I am terrified :-(

I don't have a clot but a friend of mine had one with her first baby. Everything was fine with the pregnancy and he's going to be 6 in a few weeks. Did your Dr seem concerned about it?

Yes. I am on modified work/bed rest and weekly u/s. I hope it goes away :-(

Have your dr. test you for Factor Five Leiden. Insist, since they are always reluctant. If you test positive, depending on if you have only one, or two, copies of the gene, they will put you on low dose heparin (blood thinner that will not cross the placenta) for the rest of your pregnancy. Two copies of the gene means you have a lot more risk.

Oh, forgot to mention that Factor Five Leiden is a gene mutation that is very common and causes your blood to clot more than that of others. I have it and apparently, pregnancy can be successfully managed with it. In fact, my hematologist said that it likely saved countless women in childbirth in years past, since they didn't bleed to death!

Thanks Kirsten. Seeing an OB next week as just being followed at fertility clinic so far.

Three weekly u/s so far all still showing the clot.

As if all of this is not stressful enough! Baby doesn't need a roommate!
