In October 2014, I was diagnosed with several small blood clots on my left lung. I could a 6 month course of "blood thinning" tablets to clear them. I had a chest scan done after finishing them and was all clear.
I've recently found out I'm pregnant. I remember the doctor saying I'd have to be careful if I got pregnant, when I was diagnosed with the clots. But as I had no intentions of ever having children, I didn't ask for further details.
Saw the midwife for my first appointment last week and she has made an urgent referral to the hospital due to medical history.
Am I likely to get medication or chest scans while pregnant? I'm worried about what these will do to the baby, and if I am put in "blood thinning" medication, what effect it will have when I'm in labour.
Any advice would be most appreciated.
