Figured some of you lovely ladies may have experience of blood clotting disorders relating to pregnancy so might be able to advise me.
Brief history 1st! Having had one miscarriage at 9 weeks, I have since went on to have a healthy baby girl. My pregnancy was stressful though, as I started bleeding again at exactly the same point as my 1st pregnancy (bright red blood+ heavy clotting), but after 2 months it eventually stopped. We thought we'd got past the worst, but at my 30 week scan they said she was smaller than normal, with discrepancies between head and abdomen measurements. Despite weekly scans and repeatedly threatening to induce her early, she was born naturally at 37 weeks, small (5lbs), but healthy.
My husband and I would like to start TTC number 2, but are worried about how another pregnancy would go. I have read about How blood clotting disorders can cause both miscarriages and low birth weights in babies, so my question is:
Would the hospital have screened for this during my last pregnancy, or is it something I should request?
Didn't want to read and run, thought this may be something I could help with since I suffer from Haemaphilia and was heavily monitored during pregnancy. However I'm not sure if this would be the type of thing you are meaning. Best thing you can do is speak to a health care professional about this as its obviously worrying you.
